Monday's the first day of spring, and sunny, mild weather is in the forecast for the tri-state — that, and free ice cream.
To ring in the new season, Dairy Queen and Rita’s Italian Ice are giving away complimentary desserts at locations in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut on Monday.
It’s “Free Cone Day” at Dairy Queen, where customers can get a small vanilla cone for free.
Likewise, customers who visit Rita’s between noon and 9 p.m. can get a free Italian ice in the available flavor of their choice.
Initiate brain freeze.
