Sacramento ice cream lovers will be able to enjoy a scoop for free this weekend at the recently opened Downtown Commons Häagen-Dazs location.

The DoCo Twitter account tweeted Wednesday that in celebration of this new store, “the first 500 guests to stop by Saturday, Jan. 13 will receive a free scoop [and] the chance to win free ice cream for a year.”

The downtown Häagen-Dazs shop opened in November of last year as part of an expansion of entertainment and tourist-friendly offerings to help promote the Sacramento Kings and Golden 1 Center.

Other DoCo businesses include barbecue and spirits restaurant Sauced and Punch Bowl Social, a supermarket-size game center with bowling, shuffleboard, karaoke, skee-ball, cornhole, Trivial Pursuit, wall Scrabble, chess and billiards.

Echo & Rig Butcher/Steakhouse, Burger Lounge, Pressed Juicery and State Fare Kitchen & Bar are expected to open in the coming months, with more dining options to be announced soon, according to the Downtown Commons website.

Additionally, the downtown Cinemark movie theater recently reopened and features several upgrades, including a larger snack bar and electric recliners.

The DoCo Häagen-Dazs is located at 615 David J. Stern Walk, Suite 110, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
