How to Score Free Gelato Today, July 9
Amorino via Facebook
So nice of New York City's ice cream and gelato purveyors to shower us with free frozen treats this summer. Haven't yet taken advantage? You have another opportunity today -- Amorino is opening its second New York City location at 162 Eighth Avenue, and it's giving away free gelato in celebration.
This Paris-born gelateria has more than 100 locations scattered across Europe, and the success of its first New York City location, which is at 60 University Place, has the company plotting expansion across the country. The brand
scoops spatulas dozens of flavors, which run the gamut from Italian classics like pistachio and stracciatella to bourbon vanilla and Brazilian banana. The gelato is shaped into a flower before it's served.
This new location will offer cups and cones plus gelato macarons, waffles filled with gelato, granitas, and crepes.
Stop by the new location from 4 to 7 p.m. today to claim your free gelato.
