Free Cone Day

Today is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's. They may have sold-out to the man (Unilever) years ago, but the ice cream company that put Vermont on the map are keeping alive one of their greatest traditions. I just barely beat the high school rush to pick up a fine cone of Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl and a small dixie cup of Jamaican Me Crazy (served by a sweaty guy in a cow costume).

So stop what you're doing and get to the local Ben & Jerry's. The rainy weather is keeping the lines down.

Check out the Vermont production company, Dreamlike Pictures, and their film "The Green Movie." This piece includes a satire on the Unilever/B&J thing. Plus it includes a scene where the Burlington bumblegum twee pop group, The Smittens, play a Green Prom that's solar-powered, has organic food, etc. That's just how Vermonters role.

Purchase The Smittens latest, A Little Revolution, directly from their website.

    Suzi and Jake made it to "free cone day" at the B & J in Saratoga. We returned from Iowa last night. Check my blog for photos later this day.
