Ben & Jerry’s Celebrates Birthday with Free Cone Day (CT + NY Listings Included)

25 Mar


Dan has fond memories of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.  When he was a kid, his parents took the family to the factory in Vermont where they tasted Cherry Garcia and Cookie Dough then had some sundaes at the attached shop.  Even though it looked amazing, Dan skipped The Vermonster:  20 scoops of ice cream, hot fudge, banana, cookies, brownies, and lots of toppings.  But, taking down a regular sized sundae wasn’t difficult at all.

That was years ago (won’t mention how many, though) and now Ben & Jerry’s has become a worldwide phenomena.  And, it’s pretty clear why when you can’t help yourself when it comes to flavors like Liz Lemon, Cannoli, Americone Dream, Chubby Hubby, Coffee Heath Bar Crunch and our favorite of all time…Chunky Monkey.  Just as a reminder and to thank everybody on their birthday this year, Ben & Jerry’s is offering up a free cone at their stores all across the country and world.  Last year, alone, they gave away over 1,000,000 cones!

So, you’ll want to keep April 9, 2013 open!  What?  You already have plans?  Cancel them!  Here are some of the flavors you can expect in the scoop shops:

Americone Dream, Bonnaroo Buzz, Butter Pecan, Candy Bar Pie, Cherry Garcia, Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Chocolate Nougat Crunch, Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl, Chocolate Therapy, Chunky Monkey, Coconut Seven Layer Bar, Coffee, Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz!, Late Night Snack, Milk & Cookies, and Mint Chocolate Chunk.

4th Annual Hops & Grapes Toasts & Tastes Event to Raise Funds for LLS

12 Mar

Last year we checked out Hops & Grapes Toasts & Tastes and had such a great time.  There was great food galore from restaurants across Fairfield County with plenty of beer and wine to try.  This year on 4/12 from 7:30-10:30 we can expect the fourth annual Hops & Grapes Toasts & Tastes to be even better as it moves into its new location:  the Stamford Innovation Center in the heart of downtown.  There will be plenty of room to mingle at this classic landmark building…and plenty of room to get your tastebuds tingling, too.  In addition to the Scallops with sunchoke puree and caper-raisin-pinenut vinaigrette at Bar Sugo Norwalkrestaurants, caterers, cheesemongers, and bakeries, there will also be drinks and representation from breweries.  When you’re in between drinks and courses, be sure to check out the great silent auctions that will be available (follow them on FB for early previews of what will be up for auction).  Finally, if you stick around towards the end, you can take part in the live auction with amazing trips, gifts, and packages.  We are also very proud and excited to be one of the media sponsors for this amazing event that raises vital money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society that fights leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma.

Tickets are $75 each or are $125 for a pair.  Also, you may order VIP tickets for $100 each or $175 for a pair which includes a VIP gift bag, a raffle ticket, and a LLS wristband.  You can also donate if you can’t make it or even purchase an ad to be played during the slideshow.  As of now, these are the hops, grapes, and tastes that you can toast to:
