An East Coast treat that's rare on the streets of San Francisco should be rolling into town soon, thanks to a caterer with food truck dreams. Alexis LeCount started Lexie's Frozen Custard while still the pastry chef at the Palace Cafe in Sunnyvale. She now spends her days catering and closing in on her goal of taking her business mobile, thanks to public support as well as a loan from Youth Business America.

Her successful Kickstarter campaign funds on June 24, but there's still time to donate and receive rewards such as gift cards and personalized frozen custard cakes.

"It's the best soft serve ice cream you'll ever have," LeCount raves of the fresh milk and cream creations on her Kickstarter video. In a departure from what's typically seen over in the Atlantic region, she uses local and organic ingredients and makes everything by hand, including cakes and non-frozen custard selections such as brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and lemon bars.

LeCount has not yet set the debut date or locations for her truck, but her Twitter feed will announce any updates.

  • 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.'"
