Brad Pitt & Cheap 31-cent Scoops at Baskin-Robbins

What do I have in common with Brad Pitt? A multi-racial family and a fondness for Baskin-Robbins, which will host a special discount scoop promotion on May 2. The ice cream chain is charging only 31 cents a scoop on that day.

The cheap scoop promotion is taking place next Wednesday night (May 2) from 5 pm to 10 pm as a special fundraiser for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. If you want an email reminder, Baskin-Robbins is happy to fill your in-box with a note if you register at the 31 cents a scoop promotional page. I'm skipping the online registration step, but I do plan to make a note on my laptop calendar and datebook.

Many celebrities are fans of Baskin-Robbins and over the last week, I've spotted a couple of paparazzi shots of famous faces in or walking from Baskin-Robbins.

For example, in this picture from, Brad Pitt was photographed (with daughter Zahara), walking from Baskin-Robbins:

Brad, Angie and Zahara made a quick stop for a cold
scoop of goodness from a Baskin-Robbins...

Likewise, Us magazine recently featured this photo (last picture on the left column):

KRISTIN CAVALLARI helped JOEY SIMON, 6, tidy up after an
ice-cream outing to a Beverly Hills Baskin-Robbins on April 3.

On many Sunday afternoons, my family buys ice cream scoops at one of several shops in our area, including Baskin-Robbins. We save money by using coupons and other special promotions. It's a cheap, but fun family date.
