I enjoyed my first official Mister Softee treat of the not-quite-Summer season at the beginning to June, when I visited Little Island Park, and it was delicious! Nothing says summer fun quite like a soft serve ice-cream in a cone or cup (my preference, due to less mess)! Are you a vanilla, a chocolate, or a twist fan? And to dip or not to dip? Answers in the comments, please!

Oh, what pure joy it was to stumble upon this fantastic mural by the great Buff Monster while I was walking home from an already wildly successful Street Art Safari in Freeman Alley. Featuring the artist’s beloved and iconic Mister Melty character, the mural is located just inside a gated parking lot (visible and fully accessible from the street, as seen in the photo below) on Allen Street just below Houston.
According to Buff Monster’s Instagram, this piece went up in late October and is just his second outside project painted all year! Because 2020 has sucked that hard!
I love the artist’s pristine attention to detail, which includes painting the mural over the metal guardrail, instead of restricting his canvas to just the wall behind it.
I spotted this fabulous Jimi Hendrix mural as I was out for a post-snowstorm stroll through my East Village neighborhood one Saturday afternoon. The mural can be found on the security gate for Mikey Likes It, an ice cream shop located at 199 Avenue A. According to their website, Mikey Likes It is the world’s first Pop Culture-inspired premium ice cream brand! I’ll have to make a point to stop by for a cone during their regular business hours!
Do you like Ice Cream? I sure do. If you live in LA and also love Ice Cream, I am giving you a Head’s Up right now that The Museum of Ice Cream is coming to Los Angeles, California from April 22nd to May 29th, and if you don’t buy your tickets well in advance of its opening (read: right fucking now), you, like me, will not be going!
The Museum of Ice Cream’s LA location will be ten times larger that the one last year in NYC (which I could not even score press comps to) and will feature ten imaginative ice cream-related installations such as a Banana Split comprised of ten thousand bananas, a Mint Grow House, a Melted Popsicle Jungle and more.
As of this writing, the run is already sold out through the end of April, but there is availability in May, with tickets available for random timed entries ranging from 11:30 AM to 9:30 PM, each day, except, Tuesdays, when it is closed so that they can clean the swimming pool filled with fake candy sprinkles. Just Kidding, sort of, not really.
Buy Your Tickets for $29 (Adults 13 and up) and $18 (Children 12 and under, or Seniors 60 and up!) at This Link! Tickets include 2 curated ice cream tastings and surprise edible treats!
The Museum of Ice Cream Will be Located at 2018 E. 7th Place, LA CA 90021 from April 22nd to May 29th, 2017.
