Whatcha doin’ tomorrow? Wanna get some free ice cream? Head on down to your local Ben & Jerry’s scoop shop for their annual “free cone day”. According to the wikipedia:
Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day is an annual event, held in late April or early May, in which Ben & Jerry’s scoop shops give out free ice cream cones all day. Over one million free cones are given away each year. Charitable organizations are often present at the stores each year and enjoy a significant amount of fundraising success. The first Free Cone Day was held on May 5, 1979. It was done by Ben and Jerry as a customer and staff appreciation event for the one year anniversary of their ice cream store’s opening, and has continued ever since.
According to the Ben & Jerry’s web site, the free ice cream will be available from noon until 8pm. The site also has a handy tool to help you find a shop near you.
