Memorial Day weekend is basically upon us, and while we at Dan’s Papers can’t wait, we also know there are many things we have to squeeze before Saturday on the East End, lest we lose our chance with all that summer brings. We know that if we don’t get out and do these now, we’ll have to wait until after Labor Day before we try again…and so will you!

We continue our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day on the East End with #2: Get Some Ice Cream/Froyo

Let’s face it, the moment offices and schools end their days on Friday, our streets will be flooded with sunglass-wearing vacationers heading into every place of business the East End has to offer. That means you only have two days left to enjoy not having to wait for a waffle cone with sprinkles!

A good ice cream cone should always accompany a hot day, and we are lucky enough to have an abundance of ice cream shops to feed the need. The Memorial Day crowds will soon force long waits and shortages across the East End, so head into your local ice cream shop and stock up today!

You may be reading this saying, “Well, maybe I only eat frozen yogurt…” If that’s the case, by all means—stock up on that as well. According to Mintell Market Research, frozen yogurt sales in the US grew 74 percent in 2013. This leads the highly qualified market researchers here at DansPapers.com to the conclusion that East End frozen yogurt sales will double during Memorial Day weekend alone! So, frozen yogurt enthusiasts, don’t think you are in the clear. Start buying those pints and quarts to get you through the summer!
