Sony Playstation, PartnerGaming at its finest
While at Virgin Mobile Music Festival in Baltimore I ran into Ginger with PlayStation. We talked about different events they were doing where free ice cream would be a good addition and she mentioned the Playstation Pro AST Dew Tour in Orlando.

While in Austin for South by Southwest 2007, we gave away a ton of ice cream at the Levi's/Fader Fort Party. Sheri, who works with Levi's, took a step outside, saw all of the happy people with ice cream and said, "We should talk when you get back to LA."
Since then, we've been helping each other out. We've given away ice cream at Levi's showrooms, Levi's Stores, and Levi's events throughout the country, including 501 Day in Santa Monica, CA.
