Dairy Queen Is Giving Away Soft-Serve Today

Why not?

The upside to sweating in late winter is that eating frozen dessert feels somewhat sensible. Conveniently, Dairy Queen’s annual Free Cone Day is today, which means anybody who’s a little freaked out by the potential effects of global warming can at least assuage their concerns with some soft-serve. All day, participating locations around the country will hand out one free small vanilla cone (which would normally run you about two bucks) to every person who asks. A midsummer-y brain freeze sounds like a festive way to celebrate the warm weather, and DQ asks you to share your exuberance by donating to the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital while you’re at it.
