The Chinatown Ice Cream Factory is a treat shop specializing in flavors like red bean, ginger, and almond cookie. Pinkyotto is a dress shop specializing in feminine shapes and attentive, chatty customer service. National Ice Cream Day is an American holiday designated by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. This weekend, fate brings them all together.
The deal: The Chinatown Ice Cream Factory has created a new flavor inspired by Pinkyotto. They won't reveal the details yet, but this Sunday, July 15, they'll be serving it at all four of Pinkyotto's New York stores—307 East 9th Street in the East Village, 49 Prince Street in Nolita, 330 Bleecker Street in the West Village, and 204 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg. In addition to the free ice cream, each store will also have stylists on hand to help customers pick out looks inspired by the flavor. Ronald Reagan, we owe you for this one.
