My friend Steph and I went to the Newport location on lower Thames Street. Because it wasn't a warm, sunny spring day, the short line made it quick and easy to get our ice cream. Steph got the Dazed and Confused flavor and I got Phish Food.
The great thing about Free Cone Day, especially in Newport, is that customers can order a waffle cone for $1 and the proceeds go to the local Boys and Girls Club. I'm not sure how other locations coordinate with their local organizations, but this is a sweet way to help make a difference.
