There's probably not a whole lot more we need to say here after mentioning that you can get free ice cream tomorrow at Sprinkles Cupcakes in Scottsdale. Even if you're so over cupcakes, ice cream is good and free is even better. Just make sure to line-up early because the free scoops are in limited supply.

Starting tomorrow, July 29, at noon, the first 100 people in line get to try out Sprinkles Ice Cream. Though the brand is available at various Sprinkles Ice Cream shops in California, Nevada, New York, Georgia, and Texas, it's currently unreleased in Arizona, so if you're one of the dedicated 100 people waiting, you'll get a sneak taste before everyone else.
The free scoops will be of the Sprinkles red velvet ice cream, which is a sweet cream ice cream made with organic California dairy. That base is layered with red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting.
The slow-churned ice cream is dense, kind of like a gelato, so with all of that cake and frosting crammed into it, a single scoop will likely tide you over.
