Free Cone Mania: The Haight Loves Free Ice Cream

New, 3 comments

Today is Ben & Jerry's annual Free Cone Day, and as best we can tell, there are three B&J locations in the city: Fisherman's Wharf, Union Square, and the above chaos going on right now in the Haight. It's 3pm on a Tuesday on the corner of Haight and Ashbury: why wouldn't there be a line 100 deep? The line was rife with dreadlocked folk, after-school kids, parents, toddlers, guitar aficionados and even a few homelesses. Anyway, send us your reports and photos of the lines from any of the three locations and we'll add them to the above gallery as they come in.

UPDATE: As evidence by this photo of a very pleased old man (cone in one hand, cane in the other), there is no line at the Fisherman's Wharf location.
