Friday Sundae: Polly Ann's Star Wars Walk-Away

Posted By on Fri, Feb 27, 2009 at 3:30 PM



Polly Ann Ice Cream (3138 Noriega) has been putting a smile on my face since before I was tall enough to see over the original counter, and they've had their Star Wars flavor (mint ice cream with marshmallows) for almost as long: More than two decades, in fact. You can turn a scoop of any flavor into a Walk-Away sundae for $3.95, and that offers additional choices of wet and dry toppings (I went with caramel and peanuts) along with whipped cream and a cherry. A two-scoop sundae doesn't have a special name, but a three-scooper is snazzily called the Disco and the four-scooper the Spoiler, the latter of which is apt because that would easily ruin your next meal. They'll let you taste flavors before you choose, but if you just cannot decide, you can spin the wheel and let luck be your guide -- you might even win a free scoop.

  • 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.'"
