Free retirement advice, free ice cream, a free ink-saving font, and more

  • This Tuesday the 13th, and again on January 30th, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors is offering free advice through the Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan Days-- on the 13th or 30th between 9am and 6pm Eastern, call 1-888-919-2345 or chat online to get your questions answered by personal financial advisors.
  • On Thursday (January 15th) between 5pm and 10pm, bring a gym membership card to Baskin-Robbins and get a free 2.5 oz scoop of any BRight Choices flavor (50% less fat than our regular ice cream)-- find a location here.
  • Big Bowl's offering a free Chinese New Year's meal to anyone born in the Year of the Ox (1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, etc...)
  • And you can download a font that uses 20% less ink than ordinary fonts (because it's full of holes) yet is apparently almost indistinguishable at small sizes-- check out EcoFont.
