Today, Tuesday, April 14, 2015 is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s locations around the US. That means everyone who walks into the shop (usually after standing in line) get a free ice cream cone of your choice.
I like to use Free Cone Day (I wrote about this last year) to everyone in Pittsburgh about Dave & Andy’s Ice Cream in Oakland. This fine ice cream establishment has been making and serving ice cream to Pittsburghers since 1983. If you want to skip the lines and spend a few dollars at a locally owned business, head over to Dave & Andy’s on Atwood Street in Oakland for an ice cream cone instead.
While we try to support as many local businesses as possible, the local Pittbsurgh Ben & Jerry’s is a pretty cool story too. You can read about the Pittsburgh Ben & Jerry’s partner shop that provides job training to at-risk youth here.
