Yesterday was Free Cone Day at Ben and Jerry's. On Long Island, Ben and Jerry's is not very popular and not sold many places. I haven't even eaten Ben and Jerry's that many times and have never had it on Cherry Street in Burlington. But that was all about to change because Free Cone Day was going to be my opportunity to eat a scoop of Ben and Jerry's for free! My friends Taylor, Alex, Allyson, Holly, Liz, Lauren, and I met up after our classes around 5:30 to get the bus into Burlington to get some ice cream and then go out to eat. When we got into Burlington we looked at the line of people waiting to get ice cream and I was amazed! The line of people went all the way to Rite Aid!

Here is a picture of the line of people waiting for ice cream!
Taylor, Alex, and I decided that waiting on line would take forever, so we walked down to the Skinny Pancake instead. I got the Heart Breaker (see below) and it is filled with Nutella, strawberries, and bananas. It was so yummy! Taylor got the Apples and Brie and Alex got the Veggie Monster. They were both very happy with their meals and here are some pictures to prove it!

Guess we liked our food!
This is a picture of the kitchen below! You can actually see the
cooks making the crepes and preparing the food!!
In the end I didn't get a free cone, but I had a great time at the Skinny Pancake with my girlies! The bus ride back was so packed with people that I actually had to sit on Taylor's lap. We had so much fun on the ride back, laughing and joking, that I wish we could do this every night.
Tips for going to the Skinny Pancake:
Go at an off hour, it gets really, really crowded there during the regular eating hours
Once you're there, scout out a table and put your jackets down to reserve the table while someone stands on line
Take your time when looking at the menu because there are so many delicious options to choose from
Once you have ordered, take your number and sit down and enjoy the wait because delicious heaven is coming pretty soon
Don't look for silverware because the waiters bring it when they bring your food
If you go to the bathroom don't be freaked out by the walk through the building...the bathroom is a long walk away, so don't be worried
