A brewery in Chicago is using an ice cream truck-inspired van to sell beer throughout the city during the coronavirus outbreak.

 

Goose Island Beer Company has a black van driving around the city with the brewery's phone number displayed on the side. The vehicle also displays the message: “Want beer right now?” and plays ice cream truck music to attract people’s attention.

 

Customers can call the number and order drinks, which the van will then deliver to them.

A Florida ice cream shop and toy store announced it is giving away free yo-yos with online orders in pursuit of a Guinness World Record.

 

Gregory Cohen, owner of Lofty Pursuits in Tallahassee, said his store is currently delivering its usual slate of ice cream and diner foods, as well as some basic groceries and the toys and games that the store usually sells inside.

 

Cohen said his store is giving away 2,037 yo-yos to customers who order online. He said he is aiming to hold an event after the COVID-19 pandemic to break a Guinness World Record for the most people yo-yoing at the same time. The record currently stands at 2,036 people.
