In our book, there is no bad ice cream. (We even count those cheap, no-name super market ice cream cups with wood spoons our mother used to buy.)
So imagine us leaping for joy in our office chair when a tidbit came via email: "You're invited to Yelp's Ice Cream Adventure which takes place the month of July." As if we needed another reason to eat ice cream, much less celebrate National Ice Cream month.
Here's the skinny (but not really). Yelp is giving away passports good through July 31 that will help you explore the area's ice cream scene. During Yelps Ice Cream Adventure, each participating shop will have a $5 menu special with $1 from each sale of the item to be donated to MercyFlight.
Supposedly there will be Yelp swag at some locations, too.
Below is a list of participating ice cream locations and a few special events. We noted Churn (a Lloyd Taco venture) was listed, but we haven't heard that it's open yet, so we didn't include it.
