Carvel is kicking off its 80th birthday celebration Thursday with free cone day-- and there are plenty of places to get your fix within New York City.

Anyone who visits a Carvel ice cream shop (express locations not included) will get a free junior cone or cup filled with soft-serve vanilla, chocolate or a new flavor-- salted caramel-- between 3 and 8 p.m.

Salted caramel, which also comes as hard ice cream with Heath bar pieces and as a layered sundae, will only be available through June 29.

In case we didn't have you at "free ice cream," here's another reason to go: $2 coupon books, worth more than $20 in savings, will be sold, and 100 percent of proceeds will go towards a $30,000 donation to the American Red Cross to support Disaster Relief.

While there are-- gasp!-- no participating locations in Manhattan, there are plenty in the outer boroughs, according to Carvel.com:
