As you may or may not know, I moonlight as an ice cream scooper.  Honest!

Actually, I opened two Ben & Jerry’s stores here in Gainesville, Florida as a side business back in 2003.  They have been a lot of fun, but a lot of work as well.  As yes, occasionally I do go in and scoop.  It’s good stress relief!

Today is a very exciting day for Ben & Jerry’s here in Gainesville and worldwide…. it’s Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day!  It happens once a year.  It is a day for Ben & Jerry’s to say “thanks” to their customers and friends!

Every Ben & Jerry’s store in the world will be giving all of their ice cream out for free today!   Last year here in Gainesville, we gave out almost 10,000 free ice cream cones!  Nationwide it was well over 1 million!!  

There are Ben & Jerry’s stores close to EVERY 352 Media Group office!  Gainesville, Atlanta, Tampa, Jacksonville, Seattle, Michigan… no matter where you are, now is a good time to get a free cone!  Hope to see you there…
