I’m willing to bet that right around 3pm tomorrow you’re going to be ready to cool off from the August heat, and what better way to do it than with free ice cream on one of our favorite patios in town?  The 3rd Annual Ice Cream Social at Trace will be held from 3-5pm tomorrow, August 16.  The event is benefitting SafePlace, a local nonprofit aimed at ending sexual and domestic violence.

Pastry chef Angel Begaye is pulling out all the stops with a menu of unique ice cream treats and summer favorites.   A perfectly wholesome way to spend the afternoon, you’ll even find dog-friendly treats for your four-legged family members.

Here’s a sneak peek to get your mouth watering -

Chocolate Toffee Ice Cream Sandwich

Chocolate Sable Cookie, Chocolate Ice Cream & Toffee Heath Crunch

Strawberry & Peach Swirl Sorbet Push Pop

Strawberry and Peach Sorbet with oven roasted strawberries

As if these flavors weren’t enticing enough, Trace also ran a contest to submit your “dream flavor.”  The winner was just announced today, making pineapple coconut ginger with shaved coconut ice cream another addition to the menu. 

I’m sure your head is already spinning trying to decide which delicious flavor to sample, but don’t forget to “earn your cone.”  Patrons are encouraged to provide donated school supplies for SafePlace’s back-to-school drive benefitting Austin area children.  Learn more about the drive here.
