Free to Be You and Me
If you've been by a Ben & Jerry's anytime in the past few weeks, you already know that today is Free Cone Day ... while supplies last, mind you. But if the hippie-styled chain runs out early today, no biggie. Save your ice cream dreams for an even better giveaway this weekend.
Although there are literally hundred of activities to try at the University of Maryland's festival on Saturday, the number one reason to go is for the ice cream made on the premises at the school's dairy. You get a huge bowl of your choice of 30 flavors, for free. Plus, the dairy is usually only open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, so despite the long lines, this is one of your best chances to try out the Terps' homemade creations. In honor of the school's 150th anniversary, special hand-crafted flavors include Fear the Turtle, white-chocolate ice cream with caramel and pecans, and 1856, strawberries in vanilla ice cream with pieces of shortcake and a sherry swirl. A few heaping scoops are the perfect accompaniment to a serving of the world's largest strawberry shortcake.
As if you need another reason to indulge in free desserts this week, you can do so sans guilt by balancing it with another freebie: no-cost exercise classes, courtesy of DC Yoga Week and World Tai Chi Day.
