It's summer, it's hot, so of course ice cream is always on the menu. We love our obscure holidays, even more so the food-related ones. Sometimes it's difficult to keep up with all of them, but if ice cream is involved it should definitely be on your calendar. This Sunday, July 21st is National Ice Cream Day and you are invited to all of the deals and freebies around the city.
