Needy 20-Somethings Wait for Ice Cream

31-Cent Ice Cream at Baskin Robbins

In case you missed it yesterday, the East Village’s Baskin Robbins on 6th street and 1st Avenue in 10009 was dishing out 31-cent scoops of ice cream in support of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

The “31 Cent Scoop Night” brought the 20-somethings out in droves as the line stretched out the front door of Baskin Robbins for the first time in anyone’s memory.

When approached about why people were standing in line, one 20-something female said simply, “31-cent ice cream” and then she hid her face.

I assured her there was no shame in ice cream. It’s calories for a cause.
