Friendly’s invites comedian Conan O’Brien to stop in for a one-of-a-kind “Cone-an” – a super-tall, five scoop cone of vanilla topped with one scoop of orange sherbet – at the company’s new Friendly’s Express restaurant in Conan’s hometown of Brookline, Massachusetts.

Conan O’Brien will visit Boston during his tour on June 4 and 5. Friendly’s Express opened at 289 Harvard Street in the Coolidge Corner neighborhood of Brookline on April 28, 2010.

“Conan is a hometown hero,” says Friendly’s CEO Ned R. Lidvall. “We wanted to honor him in Brookline with a special ice cream creation. The ‘Cone-an’ pays tribute to the height and orange hair for which Conan is known.”

Friendly’s Express offers a fast, fun way for people on-the-go to get the food they crave, whether eating in or taking food to-go. The restaurant features a limited menu of Friendly’s favorites – like SuperMelt Sandwiches, Big Beef Burgers, salads, Fribbles and kids’ meals – as well as new additions like the Southwestern Chicken Wrap and the Apple Walnut Chicken Salad – and, of course, Friendly’s signature ice cream desserts. Friendly’s Express is designed for both eat-in and take-out dining, with new packaging to make meals conveniently portable.

Friendly’s Express in Brookline is open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week, serving breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m. Monday to Friday, and 7 to 11 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
