Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream at Haight and Ashbury Doesn’t Trust Us to Not Steal Their HAIGHT and ASHBURY Signs

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

These signs are held in place by the world’s tiniest padlocks – you can see one on the right:

That’s not too groovy, is it, man?

Park and Rec Volunteers Get Free Slocombe, Three Twins, Mitchell’s Ice Cream! Today! Tomorrow!

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Looks like our local super-premium ice cream purveyors are a tad jealous of the Annual Free Cone Day from Ben & Jerry’s (But, as always, You Make the Call on that score). Anyway…

Announcing Free Cone Days at Three Twins (Lower Haight outlet only), Mitchell’s, and Humphry Slocombe March 24th and 25th. Hurray!

But there’s a catch – two, actually.

1. You need to commit to volunteering your labor* at a San Francisco Department of Recreation and Park facility; und

2. It’s a buy-one-get-one-free (BOGOF) deal, except for Mitchell’s – they’re giving away 200 cones before BOGOF kicks in.

*I don’t know, maybe the RPD people will be happy if you just commit to thinking about volunteering at RPD sometime in the hazy future.

Mitchell’s Ice Cream, 688 San Jose at 29th Street, 200 Free Cones then BOGOF, Thursday, March 25, 2010, 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM

 See you there! (Maybe.)

Ben and Jerry’s Free Cone Day a Huge Success in Haight Ashbury, Despite Sit/Lie Violations

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

These little gutterpunks think they can just sit down on the sidewalk at the intersection of Haight and Ashbury and eat ice cream all day. Can you imagine?

Anyway, Ben and Jerry’s Free Cone Day 2010 is a huge success today, with the line running the length of four Victorian houses.

The line at Macy’s Union Square is much shorter, as per usual on FCD. Choose or lose.

Thanks Ben, thanks, Jerry!

Free Cone Day 2010 at Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream: Tuesday Tuesday Tuesday!

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

It’s on. Once again, it’s on. Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream is having its 32nd Annual Free Cone Day this Tuesday, March 22, 2010 from 12:00 Noon to 8:00 PM. 

There’ll be five four places in San Francisco (79 Jefferson, where you at?) for you to get your cone on. Click onward to see the locations for the South, East, und North Bays on the jump page or just go here to see all locations in northern North America

On Tuesday, this udder will be equipped to dispense four new flavors:

Milk & Cookies – After the company’s recent announcement of its commitment to a full Fair Trade line-up, this new flavor is leading the pack using Fair Trade ingredients. Vanilla Ice Cream with a Chocolate Cookie Swirl, Chocolatey Chip & Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Pieces.

Chocowlate Chip – Fair Trade Certified Vanilla Ice Cream with Fudge Cows. (Available in Scoop Shops only)

Peanut Brittle – Peanut Brittle Ice Cream with Peanut Brittle Pieces and a Caramel Swirl.

Maple Blondie – Maple Ice Cream with Blonde Brownie Chunks and a Maple Caramel Swirl – all in honor of Olympic Medalist Hannah Teter

Or just go for the cone, your choice.

Be aware that the B&J outlet at Haight and Ashbury can get a little crunchy and also quite a bit busy after school lets out. And without the (mostly harmless) sit/lie law on the books yet, look out for this kind of Nevius Nightmare:

Look at them there, they were just sitting / lying on the sidewalks back on Free Cone Day ’08. If I owned a house in the outer East Bay, well, my sensibilities would have been offended and my blood would have been boiling.

Anyway, observe proper Free Cone Day etiquette and…

See you there!
