March Madness

Fooled You!!! This has nothing to do with basketball. Instead, as a fun way to end the week, here is some information from my FBIL (former brother in law) about free spring things. And how appropriate, since we are in the middle of a good ol' nor'easter here today, expecting to bring anywhere from 3 - 12 or more inches of snow by tomorrow night. So keep warm, and enjoy!
1) On March 21st, the first day of spring, Dunkin' will "put winter on ice" with their first ever Free Iced Coffee Day. All day long, Dunkin' Donuts locations all over the US will be giving away free 16-ounce iced coffees. Their iced coffees are "double brewed" for smoothness and come in nine different flavors, in addition to regular coffee.
2) PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - (March 10, 2003) - In what has become one of the most eagerly anticipated rites of spring, Rita's, the nation's largest Italian ice chain, will give a FREE regular ice to everyone who stops by one of its more than 260 locations on Thursday, March 20. To celebrate the arrival of spring at 8:52 p.m., Rita's expects to give away almost 500,000 free cups of ice. The big giveaway runs from noon to closing March 20. Stores are located throughout the east coast and as far west as Ohio.
3) Gearing up for spring, Baskin-Robbins and Rita's Ices are giving away free scoops of ice cream and Italian ices.Baskin-Robbins will offer free scoops during its fifth annual Free Scoop Night on Apr. 28. The ice cream chain expects to give away more than 200 scoops per second to three million customers nationwide.

And now, to leave you with a little selfish self - promotion, courtesy of my wife:
