In these politically charged times it's nice to see local businesses choosing to honor the fallen in the least political way possible: By offering free ice cream to those who rush in when everyone else is rushing out.

In remembrance of 9/11 both Sweet Republic and Lee's Cream Liqueur are offering free ice cream to any first responder who shows up in uniform or with identification.

According to Sweet Republic's Facebook, this includes police, fire, emergency department personnel and emergency medical technicians. Follow Chow Bella on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
