If you haven’t heard, the much-adored soft serve ice cream spot Big Gay Ice Cream has set its sights on Philadelphia, and will bring its frozen treats to the SouthStar Lofts at Broad and South Streets this summer. To celebrate the upcoming opening, Alla Spina is teaming up with the ice cream shop for a night of sweet revelry.
The party starts at 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 22 and promises ice cream shoppe-themed fare from Alla Spina including lemon and parmesan wings, mortadella hot dogs, a version of a cheesesteak and smoked duck pastrami Reuben sandwiches.
On the dessert side, the team from Big Gay Ice Cream will be dishing sweet treats like a maple Biscoff bourbon shake, mermaid sundae (vanilla with key lime curd crumble and whipped cream) and rocky roadhouse sundae (chocolate with chocolate chips, marshmallow-almond topping and whipped cream). Food and dessert will be available from 6 to 10 p.m.
Beginning at 9 p.m., drag star Bambi Galore will host a burlesque and drag show complete with drinks including specials from Victory Brewing Company.
Reservations are not required, just walk in and enjoy the food and drinks on a pay-as-you-go basis.
