Bryant Park is the place to be Thursday afternoon, October 25.
Just in time for the opening of the Bryant Park ice rink tomorrow, the ‘wichcraft kiosk at Bryant Park will be switching its seasonal offerings from ice cream to hot chocolate. To commemorate the transition, it will be offering free four-ounce cocoas from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. today.
The franchise promises that anyone in line by 4 p.m. will get the hot chocolate, which is made by melting chocolate bars into a solution of organic milk, cream, and vanilla.
Four flavors will be available: regular, malted, toasted spices, and orange marmalade. These flavors can be found at all ‘wichcraft locations, but the free giveaway is limited to the Bryant Park branch, at the southeast corner of 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue.
