It might be hazy and humid and grossly warm, which conjures up summer nowhere but Florida, but if you’re just glad to not be bundled up today, you might want some ice cream. In which case, there’s no sense in paying for it when you can get a free scoop today from the nearest Ben & Jerry’s as part of Free Cone Day. Which is…uh, Midtown. Score one for those of you with commutes.
Yes, if you’re stuck being a Manhattan office drone, today could actually be a day worth living, because at least at some point between noon and 8pm you can get a free scoop of ice cream. After waiting in the line that’s sure to be there and be long. So it’s up to you if you want to spend any more time than you have to spend in the area between Herald Square and Rockefeller Center where the Ben & Jerry’s shops are.
Sure those of you who work in Brooklyn’s many thriving commercial corridors don’t get to take advantage of this deal, but screw it, we’ve got plenty of ice cream here as it is and this also means you don’t have to be in Manhattan. Plus, you might be like Tim and hate Ben & Jerry’s like they ran over your dog or something.
