Three Twins Ice Cream Celebrates Pride

Where: Three Twins Ice Cream, 254 Fillmore (at Haight)

When: Fri., June 24-Sun., June 26

Cost: The price of a scoop (or two, or three)

The rundown: For its second year, Bay Area-based Three Twins Ice Cream is celebrating Pride with scoops for all. Founder Neal Gottlieb started creating Pride flavors for a combination of reasons, but he says, "First and foremost, I think that it's great that we live in a time and a place where people can celebrate who they are, regardless of sexual orientation, race, et cetera." For 2011, flavors draw attention to a gay icon (Dorothy's Red Ruby Slipper Sorbet), a Castro-based business (Hot Cookie), and an important gay leader (Rice Milk Harvey Milk and Cookies). That's a lot for an ice cream company to accomplish in 12 specially-made-for-Pride flavors.

Clever concoctions include Don't Ask, Don't Tell, with strawberry rations from military desserts; and Two Tops Don't Make a Bottom, vanilla ice cream with mixed-in muffin tops. Other flavors incorporate fun puns, such as Bear Bait, peanut butter ice cream with a swirl of honey; and Tea Bag, sweet-cream ice cream infused with Earl Grey. Stop by for a cone after the parade, and pick up a $3 factory pint to bring home for later.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
