UPDATE: West Nile Virus in San Mateo County

Mark Zuckerberg Spotted at Verve on 41st Avenue

The Facebook mogul stopped in for some local coffee at the Santa Cruz shop.

He created the most popular site on the Internet, had a movie made about his life and has nearly 700,000 likes on Facebook. And guess what — he has great taste in coffee.

Mark Zuckerberg stopped into Verve Coffee Roasters on 41st Avenue on Tuesday around lunch time for a cup of coffee. 

At noon, the local business sent out the following Facebook post: 

Mark Zuckerberg - Thanks for stopping in! Glad to hear you enjoyed the coffee, and we hope to see you soon.

Within an hour, the post racked up 94 likes and six comments including one from a Verve fan named Peter, who said, "I hope he tipped." Back in May, Zuckerberg famously left no gratuity after dining at a restaurant in Rome on his honeymoon.

Have you had any other celebrity sightings in town? Who have you seen? Tell us in the comments!

Brad here: I DID NOT send out that alert...but I don't know, it's kind of cool. Zuckerberg was on Pleasure Point Sunday walking on the bike path..I didn't send out an alert then either. Sure is nice that one of the richest guys in the world comes to vacation where we all live.

WHAT A CHEAP BASTARD! IF I WERE THAT WAITER, THAT LOSER WOULD HAVE SPENT THE REST OF HIS TIME IN ROME IN THE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT!
