Two ideas for tonight’s debate

Tonight’s your last chance to hear from our 2008 presidential candidates directly as they take part in their last scheduled debate, this time from Hofstra University in New York. If you’re looking for somewhere to watch the events unfold besides sitting in your own home, we’ve had two options submitted to The Hub. One option takes you over to The Bottletree where you can watch the debate on the big screen and following it up with what promises to be an incredible performance by Leeds, England’s own The Wedding Present (with Teen Getaway and The Jealous Girlfriends opening).

You may also want to consider watching with the Birmingham Metro Area Young Democrats at Matthew’s Bar and Grill on Morris Avenue (complete with debate bingo). The main event starts at 8 p.m. and we were just wondering where you’ll be watching tonight?

Because we don’t want you to be hungry

Krispy Kreme glazedWhy else would we make sure that you know about free ice cream day and free pancake day? Today we’re making sure you know about free doughnut day. The first Friday in June is always National Doughnut Day. Really, I’m not making this up. Head to your nearest Krispy Kreme (here are the metro area locations) and pick up a chocolate glazed or raspberry-filled treat. It’s your choice. And because those doughnuts are made hot and fresh all day long, don’t worry that you missed out on breakfast. You can stop by for an afternoon snack or make it your lunch. We’re not judging, just enjoying.

You did know it was Free Cone Day, right?

Free Cone Day imageSo you’ve just finished seeing the unveiling of a 9′ tall Blaze the Dragon (if you haven’t, we think we’ll have photos shortly) and you’re feeling like an ice cream cone. Yes, we know it’s in the high 50s but it is springtime…

and since we’ve been on this food kick since yesterday, we figured you needed to be reminded that today is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry‘s locations across the country, including our three area locations.
