TODAY, JULY 10: July singing and ice cream socialPosted: July 6, 2016
I may have omitted mention of the actual singing. 2 to 5 pm at St Paul’s Episcopal Church, Clinton & Carroll Streets, Brooklyn. Beware, the southbound F train isn’t stopping at Carroll St., so go past and loop back, or take the 2, 3, or 4 to Borough Hall, or the A or C to Jay St. and walk (or catch the 57 bus along Court St, or the 61 to Columbia St and walk across the highway).
This weekend, in fact, July 10, 2016. I thought we’d have three suggested “sundaes” (of course, mix and match as you like):
AFFOGATO: Over ladyfingers, coffee or vanilla ice cream; coffee; crushed chocolate espresso beans; whipped cream; coffee liqueur
S’MORES: Over graham crackers, vanilla or chocolate ice cream; Marshmallow Fluff; chopped milk chocolate; chocolate sauce. Possibly actual marshmallows, but no open flames, sorry.
TROPICALIA: Over bananas, citrus or berry sorbet; chopped dried pineapple, dried coconut, mango; spiced rum.
Details are subject to change, as the shopping’s not done yet. Please feel free to invite non-singing friends with a fondness for frozen treats to meet us at my place after 5.
