For Your Eating Pleasure

Candied Bacon for Salted Caramel Ice Cream

IMPORTANT: The cafe will be closed this coming Sunday, June 22nd so that the LRBC may take part in Portland's first ever Sunday Parkways event. What is Sunday Parkways?

From their website:
"Sunday Parkways comes to Portland on Sunday, June 22, 2008. Six miles of local streets in North Portland will be closed to traffic from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Intersections will be staffed by volunteers allowing residents to get to and from their driveways, but all are encouraged to limit their motor vehicle use during the event. The circular route will give Portlanders a chance to get out and be active right in their own neighborhood. Participants can walk, bike, run, stroll, and roller blade along the route to activities in the parks as well as to nearby shops and businesses in the vicinity."

What the heck do we have to do with this?

In celebration of this amazing event we will be slinging our homemade ice cream and ice cream sandwiches, and passing around fresh squeezed lemonade at Mississippi Neighborhood's Unthank Park (510 North Shaver. Portland, OR 97217) from 8am until 2pm PST. We will be here along with several other local vendors such as Blue Sky Wellness Studio, Northwest Hot Dogs, and Hannah Bea's Poundcake. Come join us for jump roping, pick up kickball and basketball games, The Beaterville Band, and much, much more.

In anticipation of the fun we've been testing out some new ice cream flavors such as...

Salted Caramel with Candied Bacon Bits

Peanut Butter-Banana Sandwich

Burnt Orange Honey Blossom

and...

Coconut-Grapefruit-Avocado

Will any or all of these flavors make in appearance this Sunday? Well, that just depends on how long they last...
Grapefruit Rind in Coconut Custard
So try to remember, and kindly help us pass the word around that the LRBC (Lombard Street location) will be CLOSED FOR BUSINESS, this Sunday, 6/22/08 (That's the twenty-second of June, 2008) in order to play outside, celebrate bikes, and dish out the goods at our temporary mobile/satellite location in Unthank Park from 8am-2pm. Come visit us as we ring in summertime.

The Salted Caramel with Candied Bacon Bits was pretty effin' epic. I stopped by today for an espresso and couldn't pass up an opportunity to try that ice cream. You guys are the best excuse to bike out to North Portland.
