Tomorrow, Aug. 22, local purveyors of frozen treats square off in the parking lot adjacent to Grand in Union Square. "Our goal is to prove Boston's status as an 'Ice Cream City' by showcasing the area's best ice cream and frozen dessert makers and we want you there eating it all up," says the Facebook page for the event.
For a $2 donation, you get to taste the goods from Christina's, Toscanini's, Wheeler's (vegan!), and more. The event runs from 3-6 p.m. at 374 Somerville Ave., Somerville. The rain date is Sunday, Aug. 23. Donations benefit the Juniper Fund, a scholarship established in memory of musician John Hall of the Addison Groove Project.
