Nice Cream Benefit & Save Chicago Ice Cream

August 11, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Who by now has not heard of the issues facing Kris Swanberg and her Nice Cream Ice Cream company.  As the Reader’s Mike Sula notes, “the Trib‘s Monica Eng has a knack for finding food policy stories that make your blood boil.” I mean strawberry syrup instead of fresh stawberries and bagged “milk.”  All sortsa people are looking at ways they can help Kris and others in her bind.  And one big need, as always in these cases, is money.  Towards that purpose, Revolution Brewing is hosting a fundraiser for Kris and the issue of real ice cream generally.

The event is on August 28 from 5 PM to 8 PM at Revolution Brewing, 2323 N. Milwaukee–you can surely attend this event after the Purple Asparagus Corks and Crayons event on the same day.  Your ice cream ticket includes beer and appetizers by RevBrew and of course, lots of Nice Cream, plus the opportunity to bid in a silent auction featuring donations from awesome local Chicago businesses.  Additional information and ticket information can be found here.
