Today’s the first day of spring, and that feels like a mean joke for the 20th day of a month that’s being christened “Marchuary.” But if you head to Dairy Queen, it might be possible to believe the season is really changing. DQ’s very conveniently timed Free Cone Day runs all day as usual, meaning customers have till tonight to go score a free small vanilla cone. Yes, you might navigate a snowbank to get it, but the chain is banking that free soft serve will help put customers in a more vernal mood. You should then pay that spring in your step forward by donating to the Children’s Miracle Network, which DQ encourages people to do at any participating location today.
