Timeout New York Kids

Make the most of your city

We all scream for (cheap!) ice cream

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I am ridiculously, um, frugal. Most New Yorkers are -- it's our innate thriftiness that has keeps us going in this expensive city. So, when Baskin Robbins offers their 31 tempting flavors for a quarter, a nickel and a penny from 5 PM to 10 PM tonight, let's just say I get excited (almost as excited as when a loathed contestant get voted off my favorite reality shows). There is cheering, incessant chatter and yes, occasionally, I get told to shut up and I am forced to get back to work. I imagine your kids, looking to ensure they score dessert tonight, will be just as giddy as I am at 31 for a frickin' ice cream cone. We also did you, our loyal inaugural blog readers, a huge favor -- we called a few stores to see where the offer is valid. (Some locations are not participating, though. Can't they find it in their hearts to reward us with close-to-free sweets?).
