Can you believe this is the 31st year that Ben & Jerry's is doing a Free Cone Day?
True. According to the Web, they're giving Free Ice Cream 4/21/09 from noon to 8pm.
With our current anemic economic condition, the lines for this may be longer this year.
(By the way, wouldn't it make more sense to do this day on 4/20? Wink wink, nudge nudge...)
