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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
