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!

Happy Birthday Frank Lloyd Wright!

Frank Lloyd Wright is considered by many to be America’s finest architect. He was the creator and a promoter of organic architecture, a style which promotes harmony between architectural structures and the natural world. He was also a leader in the Prairie School architectural movement which focused on horizontal lines, broad overhanging eaves, solid construction and craftsmanship.

Wright was born on June 8, 1867 and there are a couple events coming up that pay homage to this great American visionary who the American Institute of Architects called “the greatest American architect of all time.”

On Friday, June 10, the Frank Lloyd Wright Birthday Celebration is taking place at the Wright designed Hollyhock House in East Hollywood. The Hollyhock House was originally designed for oil heiress Aline Barnsdale and was built during 1919 through 1921. The house, Wright’s second project in California, was the seventh site in Los Angeles to be designated a National Historic Landmark and is now the centerpiece of Barnsdall Art Park. The celebration will include period music by Jim Ziegler’s Swingsations with Wendy Rea, wine, a raffle and a silent auction. Read the rest of this entry »
