Bill de Blasio Tells People When Their Coffee Sucks

Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio (R) stands with former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean as the two campaign together at a subway station on August 27, 2013 in New York City. With two weeks to go until the primary election, de Blasio is currently running in a tight race with City Council Speaker Christine Quinn in the Democratic race for mayor of New York City. "Howard, I love you, but your coffee sucks."

Bill de Blasio may never manage to get those taxes raised to pay for universal pre-K. He may never figure out how to rewrite the "tale of two cities." But here's one thing you can take to the bank*: If your coffee sucks, he'll let you know. "About two years after he started coming in almost every day," recalls Nick Kolosakas, owner of Park Slope's Little Purity diner, "he comes up, he puts his hand on the counter, he looks at me and he goes, 'Nick, I love your place, but your coffee sucks.'" And according to Yelp, it may continue to suck to this day. 

*Don't take this to the bank, you'll just confuse people.
