When we lived in Rye Brook, we’d often travel into Port Chester and check out some great restaurants like Q, Sonora, or try the countless restaurants that were serving up ceviche.  Now that we’re in Greenwich, we’re even closer to Port Chester, so we travel in quite often and have discovered one of our favorite places:  Coals.  Well, we’re excited to share the third annual A Taste of Port Chester, 2013.  This event is taking over nearly the entire downtown area of Port Chester on June 2 from noon to 3:30 pm with registration beginning at 11:30 am.

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.
