Brooklyn Pride!

Day 1

Friday

Ready.

Our box o' toppings is packed. T-shirts are looking good, and the truck art came out swell. Lil' Gay is typing up the menu. We're ready to go, folks! In the morning we meet Andrea and head out to Prospect Park.

I hope that many of you can come out to see us. If you can't be there, I hope you smile knowing what we're up to! We'll post some pictures of what's going down.

I've got more to report, but I'm going to keep you in suspense. To tease you: plan on being by a radio (or a computer with speakers) Monday morning at 7:30am.

See ya tomorrow!! SPRINKLE ON!

SATURDAY Details

This Saturday, June 13
Prospect Park for Brooklyn Pride
We'll be at the "Kids Space" - inside the park, at about Prospect Park and 15th. Look for signs for Kids Space.

We're serving by 1pm.

Confirmed topping menu items:
TRIX Cereal (Trix ARE for kids, but adults can have 'em too. It's queer, colorful, and youngster-friendly, like us!)
Cayenne Pepper. It makes the chocolate into something really surreal.
Fresh berries TBA - we're going to find the freshest thing we can, so I'm not saying exactly what berry.
Maple Syrup. We've got a certain brand that we love. You're going to love it, too. Taste-tester Bo was licking the bottom of her ramekin for this one, something she could only accomplish thanks to yoga.
