Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s

Ben & Jerry’s is making all your dreams come true with their FREE cone day on April 8th! That’s right FREE!

Why does Ben & Jerry’s do this?  Since its first anniversary in 1979, Ben & Jerry’s has invited all their cone lovers out on April 8th to celebrate and to say thank you for another year of support. 

In the spirit of giving back, Seaport Village’s very own Ben & Jerry’s will be partnering up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County to raise awareness on children mentorship for our community.

Leave it to the awesome Seaport Ben & Jerry’s to go a step beyond and make a difference in their community.  We’re certainly proud of them.


Make sure to like Seaport Village’s Ben & Jerry’s on Facebook.

We’ll see you on Free Cone Day happening all day on April 8th at Seaport Village!

2014 Buskers After Dark Details

I have to admit, I am beyond stoked about Buskers After Dark.  An 18+ event with Jugglers, acrobats, fire eaters and discounted food?  Yes, please!

 Let me break it down for you!

$1 Beer and Discounted foods

Every year, San Diego City Beat helps us spread the word on our festivities with their beer club members. So naturally, we make sure to have unique and local beers at a discounted rate of ONE DOLLAR!!  I know.. crazy!  Our food court eateries are providing you with $1 beers from Aztec Brewery, Bud Light, Stone IPA, Arrogant Bastard and so much more. You can enjoy this awesome perk until the kegs run dry.

NOTE-You’ll have to RSVP to City Beat’s beer club list in order to get the $1 specials.  To RSVP, click here

You thought $1 beer is awesome? Well, there’s more.  The Seaport Village eateries will also have discounted food from their delicious menus. 

Make sure you arrive early to find parking, grab a menu and get in on this food/beer fun!
