Free ice cream!!!

SylvanBeachUpdate.jpgJust mention Dining@Large next Sunday when you attend the Sylvan Beach block party that kicks off its new ice cream brand, and you'll get free ice cream.

The press release says this:

The Sylvan Beach Foundation is proud to launch our new brand: the Taharka Brothers Ice Cream Company.  The ice cream is still the same super premium ice cream that has been served at Sylvan Beach in the past, but we believe the new brand better captures our social mission. 

Not exactly sure what that means, but it sounded good, so I skipped straight to the free ice cream part.

The party is from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., with live music and giveaways, at the Mount Washington Mill location.

Patrick McArdle, who sent the e-mail, concluded by saying, "If people mention that they heard about the party on Dining@Large, the ice cream is free! (OK, even if you forget to mention D@L, it's still free.)" ...

This summer Sylvan will be selling its new ice cream from street carts at two locations: on Greene Street across from the University of Maryland Hospital and on Wolfe Street on the Johns Hopkins Hospital campus.  The company hopes to get more places for carts soon.

Uh-oh. Looks like a fattening summer for me here on the UMB campus....

My pregnant wife made sure that we didn't miss this. The honey graham ice cream was delicious!
