Chick-a-Latte: Tempest in a D cup

The neighborhood has been hot, hot, hot since Chick-a-Latte started pouring out the coffee -- and pouring on the sex -- at 4736 East Colfax Avenue.

Tomorrow, the coffeeshop's owners hope to warm up the neighbors by offering a free D cup of coffee to anyone who comes in.

That's one way of keeping abreast of the competition.
