Last year I got an urgent text message from good friend Ray Brownell alerting us there was free ice cream at Friendly's. It was a hot day. We were on our way back from a hike and drove straight to the nearest Friendly's for some yummy refreshment.
Friendly's is at it again this year. Walk into a participating Friendly's between noon and 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 6 to get your free single scoop cone!
I'm not sure how many years Friendly's has been hosting Free Ice Cream Day, but I'm glad that they do in light of the fact that there is no longer a Ben & Jerry's scoop shop convenient to where I live. B&J's always has a free cone day in April, but it doesn't do us much good.
