Despite the autumn chill I was craving gelato. Specifically, the kind found in CDM off MacArthur & Pacific Coast Highway. There was, of course, a wait. I grabbed the nearest reading material to pass the time. It was promoting Friday Disco Night. So on the 1st & 3rd Fridays of the month the lights go down (cue Barry White), the disco ball is lowered, and you get 15% off if you can do the hustle.
Kidding. Actually the discount comes when you are decked out in your 70s finest. I'm talking bell bottoms, peace symbols and platforms. In fact, you could be in your cowboy boots, Hammer pants, or poodle skirt and STILL get the 15%. How sweet is that? Gianduia sweet!
If that's not enough to shake shake shake to Gelato Paradiso, there's more.
This weekend starting at 6pm on October 30th until closing time on Halloween, trick or treat down to your local GP for a free yellow cup of whatever flavor you want. Gelato or sorbetto. Free. You're welcome.
You know what else is going on there? Seasonal flavors PUMPKIN & GREEN APPLE. While the apple is on its way out, pumpkin is going strong through Thanksgiving. Before you know it, it's December and the return of both EGGNOG & PEPPERMINT!
Is that enough for you yet? No? Okay....
Students get 15% off Monday thru Friday at the Corona del Mar location. Did you know that topping your gelato with a shot of espresso is called an Affogato? Knowledge is power, kids. Save some money, use a fancy word, and feel empowered.
What are you still doing on the computer? Go get us some dessert!
