A cone is incredibly versatile—it can hoist up ice cream, it can alert motorists to construction, and it can amplify a play-by-play of Swan Lake. Celebrate one of the cone's myriad uses with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream and casual fare at BJ’s Velvet Freez.
BJ’s Velvet Freez is a nostalgic walk-up and drive-thru eatery that’s been open since 1954. Classic American favorites such as hamburgers ($1.86) and hot dogs ($1.86) take up real estate on the left-hand side of the menu, as does the popular pork-tenderloin sandwich ($4.66). The chefs fry anything from mushrooms ($3.03) to pretzels ($1.86), and the other half of the menu teems with sweeter soft-serve treats, including small-dip cones ($1.86) and 15 flavors of shakes ($3.03/large). In BJ’s Velvet Freez's signature Icebergs, soft-serve technicians blend together creamy ice cream with gobs of toppings, including oreo and Butterfinger bits, chocolate-covered cherries, and mini Titanics ($3.03–$3.68).
