Today is free cone day at Ben & Jerry's!

Does Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day translate on the West Coast the way it does on the East Coast? I have to start with a disclaimer that I actually went to the University of Vermont, which means Free Cone Day was a borderline holiday and the line went around the block and the Ben & Jerry's stores in town (especially Church Street) usually closed by 3pm because they had sold out of everything. Oh it was a glorious day and we would go and read Seven Days and swoon over crunchy boys with beards wearing cords and their big mountain dogs. Ah yes those were the days. While I can't guarantee your "Free Cone Day" experience to be quite as transcedental, I can tell you that free phish food never tasted so good.

There are 12 locations in the greater Los Angeles area participating and can be found here.
