Winter Boston Events!

Hi everyone! We are participating in two very exciting events this coming December! Even though the temperatures continue to dip, we'll be serving up delicious ice cream in flavors pumpkin, sweet potato, cookies & cream, apple pie & more at the Boston Bazaar Bizarre and the Cultural Survival Winter Bazaar.

The Boston Bazaar Bizarre occurs on Sunday December 7, 2008 from noon til 7PM. Hosted at the The Castle at Park Plaza (101 Arlington Street, Boston) with over 140 vendors and DJ Johnnie Spaceman, it should be a really great event!

"Bazaar Bizarre began in 2001 in the Boston-area as a hodge-podge of friends and acquaintances cobbling together their handcrafted DIY wares to sell and staging an offbeat entertainment extravaganza. In 2004 the Bazaar Bizarre spread to Los Angeles and Cleveland and in 2006 Make took us under their wing to include the Bazaar Bizarre as part of the Maker Faire in the San Francisco-area every spring. The Bazaars in Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles and San Francisco happen every year during peak holiday shopping season in December."

The Bazaar Bizarre is a fantastic place to meet craftsters and shop for unique, sustainable, and fun gifts! Be sure to stop by and say hello!

On a similar note, we will also be scooping up our delicious vegan ice cream at the Boston Cultural Survival Bazaar. An annual event, the Cultural Survival Bazaar is held at the Hynes Convention Center (900 Boylston Street, Boston), on Saturday, December 6, 2008 & Sunday, December 7, 2008 from 11:00 AM-7:00 PM.
