Did checking the forecast for the next three days put you near tears? We didn't cry, we swear. But just in case you've got heat-wave woes, here's your cure: a Game of Thrones–themed ice-cream party. As previously reported, Foursquare recently launched the "Game of Cones" campaign to crown one local shop with the dignified Iron Cone designation. And after tallying check-ins from the social-media company, Big Gay Ice Cream has won the title!
Stop by South Street Seaport's Pier 17 to celebrate (in this case, celebrate is code for "eat lots of frozen treats"). The cooling shindig is happening Thursday, June 27 from noon–4pm, and everyone gets a free scoop from midtown chainlet Steve's Ice Cream. Plus, the first 100 people to make an appearance get a gratis serving from our venerable victors, which is definitely reason enough to sneak out of work. See you there.
