It's a lovely day outside — perfect weather, in other words, for some ice cream. Fortunately, Ben & Jerry's has you covered: today is their annual Free Cone Day whereby they thank their loyal customers with free ice-cream. From noon to 8 p.m., visit your local Ben & Jerry's scoop shop to have your choice of Cherry Garcia, Half-Baked or whatever other flavor strikes your fancy in a cup or cone, entirely gratis. Of course, free food inevitably means big crowds but, based on our years of participating in Free Cone Day, the lines usually move pretty quickly. And wouldn't you rather be outside anyway?
