Free Cone Day tomorrow!
Posts from Previous cone days here.
The crowd around the block on Church Street Burlington Vermont, at 4:50pm today.
The voters are hungry for ice-cream! The line at Starbucks was not so long, but to be fair Starbucks was open all day and Ben and Jerry’s is running their promotion from 5pm-8pm.
Election day is tomorrow, polling times and places (for Vermonters) can be found here.
If you preform your civic duty, and don’t mind waiting in a second election day line you are entitled to a free Ben and Jerry’s cone (at participating scoop shops nationwide).
Also there appears to be a free 12oz coffee at Starbucks for voters.
Check my math: if you are a current Burlington Telecom subscriber you can show your bill, and pay $15 for a new lowered annual City Market membership. With this membership you receive a $25 City Market gift card, net $10!
Likewise if you’re a current City Market member, you will get a discount on your first BT bill if you sign up for new Burlington Telecom service.
Chicken wings are one of those things that can be either amazing or awful, and not really too much in between. Chicken wings are one of the foods that need to be cooked correctly, sadly few restaurants do this.
Chicken wings must:
1) Have the chicken fat fully rendered
2) Be crispy.
While it is certainly is possible to over cook the chicken wings, resulting in dry meat, the vast majority of the time the wings are undercooked with plenty of gross slimy chicken fat on them.
Now that being said, RJs (Reuben James) in downtown Burlington Vermont, knows how to cook wings, and it just so happens that they have FREE hot wings Friday and Saturday evenings.
So while the hot sauce may lack depth, they are generally well cooked, which is more important. Ironically, the hot wings tend to be best during the free nights, as the chefs tend to still cook the wings in large batches out of habit during the week.
