Greatest News Ever ... If You Like Free Ice Cream



It's Free Cone Day, from noon to 8 p.m., at all Ben & Jerry's. The event in 1979 began as a "thank-you" to customers.

"Yes, we have quite a bit more ice cream in stock," says Michael Phillips, assistant manager of the Black Road store in East Memphis.

Phillips says a nice day like today might draw around 150 to 200 folks to his store. But on Free Cone Day, they're gearing up to serve between 3,500 to 4,000!
