Free Häagen-Dazs today, you guys. From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at participating locations, the gourmet ice cream will be giving out free scoops of your choosing. Here's a list of the locations for your perusal, and some fun facts to break the ice with your neighbor while you're waiting on line: Did you know Häagen-Dazs was established by Polish immigrants Reuben and Rose Mattus in the Bronx, New York, in 1961? Their first retail outlet was in Brooklyn, and the brand name is contrived of two made-up words meant to look Scandinavian to American eyes!

Häagen-Dazs is also concerned about bee colony collapse disorder; they've launched a public awareness campaign to encourage communities to take action, and donated money to help fund honey bee research. Here's a spirited dance video they put together, starring some pretty aggro dudes in bee costumes.
