Jody’s Jam of The Week

Ice Cream Tasting & Animal Charity Benefit, March 22, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., at Asylum, Washington, D.C.

 Just because you’ve dropped 50 bucks on office pools this past week, doesn’t mean you half to watch your bracket hopes go down the drain. While your picks choke this Saturday, you can be first in line at Asylum for free ice cream. That sort of makes up for your crappy selections, right? If that still doesn’t cheer you up, maybe you can feed your sorrows with a little something from Asylum’s top rated vegan menu. At the same time, you’re helping out Washington, D.C.-based animal advocacy charity, Compassion Over Killing (10% of the day’s sales from their vegan menu will be donated to C.O.K.) Making its D.C. debut will be Boston-based Wheeler’s Black Label Vegan Ice Cream, with free samples being offered up between 2 and 4 p.m. So, take a break from all the bracket busting this Saturday, your nerves will thank you and, let’s face it, you never win those pools anyway.


What: Ice Cream Tasting & Animal Charity Benefit

When: Saturday, March 22, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Where: Asylum, 2471 18th St, N.W., Washington, D.C.
