Ice cream happens to be one of the best antidotes to shopping fatigue, according to my completely unscientific research. Sit down with a slowly melting cone of creamy chocolate or strawberry or mint chip, rest your aching feet, and before long, you'll be ready to hit the aisles with renewed vigor.
So it's a good thing that Haagen-Dazs is back in action at Biltmore Fashion Park, with a brand-new location outside of Macy's and across from Vera Bradley.
This Saturday's grand opening celebration will feature free scoops of ice cream or half off any menu item from noon to 5 p.m., as well as the chance to win free ice cream for a year.
How much ice cream could you eat in a year? Swing by the shop and maybe you'll be lucky enough to find out.
