Ice Cream Social

Birthday_boy They're handing out free ice cream today at Starbucks, nationwide. Your favorite Barista is going right now, up to the Starbucks next to Whole Foods, and we'll give out a dozen Barista frisbees to whoever we see there. (Say hi to the Ice_cream birthday boy we're bringing with us.)

Thanks to Butch for the tip.

UPDATE: Home. Yum. 250 calories. Btw, amazing the number of people who are suspicious of free Frisbees.

Me, too! We have a Starbucks in the basement of my office bldg. I went down and didn't see any signs announcing it but when I asked the guy went in the back and got it for me! It was like the world's best kept secret!

Awesome ice cream, too.

I used to work for The Dramatist's Guild and got many free tickets to distibute to playwright's to "paper the house". One afternoon we got them so late in the day we didn't have time to give them to guild members so I walked over to TKTS and tried to give the people in line free tickets to a show with Glenda Jackson. Many people were suspicious, not surprising for Times Square, I guess.

Since I won't be there, and I already have a frisbee, happy birthday to the birthday boy. Have a grand, special one and an even better year.

Happy Almost Birthday, Pam!

Walleroo: That would make them "real live nephews of my Uncle Sam!" :-)

Posted by: Miss Martta | Jun 29, 2005 3:41:15 PM

Why thank you Miss M.

Folks my age often groan when another birthday rolls around, but I like remind them to consider the alternative.

Posted by: Pam | Jun 29, 2005 3:46:29 PM

Yea, I really don't celebrate mine anymore with anyone other than my best friend and my BF. But I won't turn down dinner at my fave Portuguese place in Newark!

Posted by: Miss Martta | Jun 29, 2005 3:49:14 PM

which place is that MM? i need ideas for a birthday dinner of my own. i've only been to Iberia so far.

Posted by: E. | Jun 29, 2005 4:04:38 PM

Happy Birthday?

Posted by: Jessica/Frustrated | Jun 29, 2005 4:21:15 PM

That's the one! There's also Spain, but I like the ambience at Iberia better and there's not such a long wait. For dessert, Rivera is a must.

Mine was yesterday, June 28.

Walleroo, you really have to stop "speaking" for me (or I will start "speaking" for you,telling bike clubs to go screw themselves on their web sites). My natal day, as it happens, is the same as Paul Revere's Ride (a truly patriotic occasion), and the birthday of Lucrezia Borgia, James Woods and Eric Roberts (Julia's crazy actor brother). April 18.
