We don’t know much about Cool Hand Luc, the brand new ice cream shop opening on King West today, but it is Friday, and who doesn’t like free ice cream? From 4 p.m. till close, Cool Hand Luc is providing samples for all. Those who don’t enjoy lineups should probably stay away, but everyone else should go ahead and get their dairy on.
