I Scream, You Scream!: The Ice Cream Post

As February winds to a close, it’s time to plan for the most wonderful time of the year: ice cream season. Unlike the winter months, where the only advantage to eating ice cream is that it is delicious (which is really the main draw, let’s be real), springtime seems perfectly suited to the frozen delicacy. Not too hot, so it doesn’t melt all over you, and not too cold, so it doesn’t make your teeth hurt. Ice cream is the best. To celebrate the glory that is ice cream, here is a list of events all across the USA to get your sweet tooth satisfied. BOO-YUM!

Friday, March 2 | Deadly Dessert | Philadelphia, PA

ICE CRIME! This dinner theater production in Philly needs you to solve a mystery surrounding Len & Terry’s Ice Cream. “But wait,” you say, “I want to eat ice cream, not just talk about it! YOU TRICKED ME.” No, I did not. This is DINNER THEATER, and Bistro Romano, as part of its full menu, has a fine selection of gelato and sorbetto to satisfy that craving. This is an all-immersive ice cream experience. Read the rest of this entry »

East Bay Vitner’s Alliance’s Urban Wine Xperience

Urban wineries are starting to pop up all over the country. In a trend that’s reminiscent of the craft beer brewing trend of the 80’s, urban wineries allow vintners to set up tasting rooms in urban centers without having to pay the high price for land in wine country. Usually they’ll rent an urban space, truck in the grapes from regional vineyards and then ferment and cellar the wine on the premises.

Representing this trend in the East San Francisco Bay area is the East Bay Vintner’s Alliance, a collection of twenty urban wineries spanning from Alameda to North Berkeley. Their headquarters are in Oakland and they source their grapes from Oregon, Southern California and even as far away as the Rhone Valley in France. Their mission is to create awareness in the East Bay that they are the best local source for purchasing local wine and to create excitement about the growing trend of urban wineries.
