Ice Cream Social: All are Invited

Celia at 5th and Spring had a good idea to hold an Ice Cream Social for those who attended the blogdowntown picnic last May and we have a date set now. The very informal gathering will be Sunday, August 19 at 3pm in Weller Court, next to the new Piccomolo Italian Ice Cream shop at 2nd and San Pedro.

Of course, anyone who reads our respective blogs are invited. Holding the social that day gives a break from the heat for those attending the Tofu Festival. Also, it allows those coming in for the Nisei Week a chance to mingle before the new Grand Parade attraction, the Nebuta Floats, start at 6pm.

Little Tokyo has a number of frozen choices in the Japanese Village Plaza (even if Pinkberrys doesn't open). There's Mikawaya Mochi Ice Cream that's been part of Little Tokyo since 1910. Little Tokyo Yogurt and Ice Cream has the basic ice cream selections. Ceflore Italian Yogurt gives Pinkberrys a run for their money. Grab something there, or whatever choices may be at the festival booths.
