Big Gay Ice Cream Is Popping Up at Alla Spina

A little something to hold you over while you wait for the ice cream shop to open.

A Philly location of NYC soft-serve phenomenon Big Gay Ice Cream is still in the works at SouthStar Lofts, but this month you'll get a chance to preview the wares. Vetri beer bar Alla Spina will host a Big Gay Night on Sunday, March 22, complete with everything important in this world: ice cream, alcohol, fatty snacks, and a drag show.

Alla Spina's pulling out many of their most indulgent hits for the night — think mortadella hot dogs, carbonara burgers, dusk pastrami reubens, beef fat fries and beer-battered onion rings, and more — to go with the following menu of sweets:

Shakes
· Victory Brewing Wort (non-alcoholic)
· Maple-Biscoff-Bourbon

Desserts
· Mermaid sundae: Vanilla with key lime curd, crumble, and whipped cream
· Rocky Roadhouse sundae: Chocolate with chip-marshmallow-almond topping, non-so-awesomesauce, and whipped cream
· Rainbow paletas (with or without a tequila dunking shot)

Dinner goes from 6 to 10 p.m. on MArch 22, with a burlesque and drag show hosted by Bambi Galore beginning at 9 p.m. No reservations are needed and you'll pay as you go.
