Fun with signs: where is the coffee?

At the startup weekend event held in Redmond recently (a 3 day event where entrepreneurs launch websites in 72 hours), I discovered some clever signage.

Most signs show complete bordom with the task. They’re bland, perfunctory, and have the sense of humor of of a prison inmate with several life sentences. It’s good to notice signs that work well and have some personality at the same time.

At intense events like startup weekend coffee is a staple people depend on to make it through. And the signs you’ll see below for where to find it show an appreciated thoughtfulness and playfulness. How many more people would follow more signs if they had some personality?
