Just a heads up that tomorrow the new Manhattan location of gelato and crepe chain Melt will be trying to set the world record for the most cups of gelato served in a single day. If you'd like to help the company achieve its goal, head over to Melt at 1053 2nd Avenue, between 55th and 56th Streets, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow. The lines for these kinds of giveaways can sometimes make one question whether its worth the time investment, but since Melt is going for the world record, maybe they'll be cranking out the gelato fast enough to keep things moving briskly?
Also, this is for a good cause: The outlet is encouraging customers to spend some (or more) of the money they would have invested in gelato with a donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. That's an organization dedicated to education and research about breast cancer causes, treatment, and the search for a cure. The free gelato is just one small event occurring during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month; Friday is also National Mammography Day!
