Today is Free Cone Day at select Ben & Jerry’s stores around the country. The terms and hours differ by location, so here’s the news you need to know if you’re looking for a free single-scoop cone on Long Island.
From noon to 10 p.m. at the Huntington Village location, customers can choose among all 36 flavors for their free cones.
