TUES 4/29: Free Ben & Jerry's, Indie Shorts, Folk

Imagine Whirled Peace, Ben and Jerry's

TUES 4/29

Store Hours
Ben and Jerry's Free Cone Day!
at all participating Ben & Jerry's stores

This is like Dunks "Free Iced Coffee Day" to me. It's one per customer. I'll try to go to as many locations as possible -- the lines are longer than usual, but so... No need to be a pig like me; have a free scoop, and it will improve your Tuesday by at least 50%. Participating stores appear to include (and why wouldn't they?): Harvard Sq, Newbury St, Prudential Center, Park Plaza, Natick, Salem, Western MA, and all Cape Cod shops.

Of course, there are new flavors to try: Coconut Seven Layer Bar, "Imagine Whirled Peace" (caramel & sweet cream ice creams w/ fudge peace signs & toffee cookies), Cheesecake Brownie, and Cake Batter.

Best Of Boston 48 Hour Film Project
at Kendall Square Cinema, 370 Binney St, Cambridge

Believe it or not, but tickets are still available for the closing film at IFF Boston -- Werner Herzog's spectacular new documentary "Encounters at the End of the World", about the scientist inhabitants of Ross Island, Antarctica.

Other than that... another good, fun indie option is a chance to see the cream of this year's 48 Hour Film Project. From writing to editing, all of the shorts are created in 48 hours.

TUES 4/29

Ryan Fitzsimmons, Tom Bianchi, Danielle Miraglia (8pm), Brendan Hogan & Friends (10pm)
at Toad, 1912 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Porter Sq)

Tonight's 8pm set is described as "in the round", but I assume it'll be more of a semi-circle where they take turns playing songs and joining each other here and there. A couple will probably join Brendan Hogan for the later show. This is a plethora of singer-songwriter folk to pay attention to -- or to provide soundtrack for a few beers.

My friends at Going.com were hosting a free Pat McGee Band show tonight at Bill’s Bar. There's nothing wrong with Pat, but I've had a difficult time taking him seriously after I learned the Irish slang meaning of "gee".
