Nearly three months have passed since Roll Ice Cream & Coffee began dishing out its confections, but given that it’s not going to be freezing today, it’s as fine a time as any for a grand opening celebration.

Here’s something most Baltimoreans can agree on: What’s better than one Charmery? Two Charmeries.

You know that moment after you’ve finished dinner when you can’t decide if you want dessert or a(nother) glass of wine? Well, imagine a world in which you could have both. At the same time.

Ice Cream for Breakfast at the Charmery

catch of the day fish (2)Weekend brunch is pretty great no matter what. But you know what else is great? Ice cream. And you know when it’s best? Any time. Luckily, the folks over at The Charmery seem to agree with us, which is why they’re hosting an Ice Cream for Breakfast event tomorrow, Saturday, February 7th. They’re declaring it, “the most wonderful, delicious, morning of the year!” And we can’t see why we wouldn’t agree. So throw on your best footie pajamas (yes, dressing in your PJs is encouraged) and head down for the least nutritious breakfast of the year.

Uber Attempts to Bribe Baltimore With Ice Cream Delivery Today

Ride-share app Uber is facing legal troubles in Baltimore (and around the world). So in an attempt to win customers’ affection, they decided to go with a tried-and-true method: delivering ice cream to your front door/office/park bench/wherever you may be. This seems like a great idea at first — Uber brings you things that you want wherever you are, like cars, or ice cream! — but they turn out to have made one major mistake.

Learn to Make Ice Cream at the Patterson Park Library

catch of the day fish (2)The Enoch Pratt Free Library is inviting you to, “celebrate America’s independence by learning to make homemade ice cream.” While the exact relationship between ice cream and our nation’s founding does elude us, we’re not going to quibble, since that might result in us not getting to learn how to make the stuff or enjoy the fruits of those labors. We’ll just settle for knowing that ice cream was in fact brought here from Europe during colonial days and that founding fathers such as Ben Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson were known fans of the stuff; which we suppose you could extrapolate to mean that ice cream basically fueled the American Revolution. In fact, that’s probably a pretty safe assumption to make. Wouldn’t they need a nice cold treat after trudging through battlefields in knee-high boots and wool uniforms? Surely.

Johns Hopkins Gets Its Very Own Ice Cream Flavor

One of my lifetime goals is to do something noteworthy or fabulous enough that I get an ice cream flavor named after me. For now, though, I’ll just have to be satisfied with Blue Jay Batter, the brand new ice cream flavor named after my alma mater, Johns Hopkins. Doesn’t it look delicious?

The Charmery is Open! And not a minute too soon…

catch of the day fish (2)It’s only been a few years since Sylvan Beach (now Taharka Brothers) closed their ice cream shop in Mount Vernon. But those few summers without our favorite locally-made ice cream shop have been long and hot—made livable only by the consolation sweetness of snowballs. So when I heard that a new ice cream shop would be taking the place of the old pharmacy on the corner of Chestnut and the Avenue, I knew it would all be okay. I also started peeping through the paper-covered windows every time I walked by, and compulsively checking their Facebook and Twitter feeds. When, oh when would they open??? Didn’t they realize how hot it was? And how much we all just wanted some dang ice cream? Well, even if patience is a virtue I was not born to have, the wait is over. The Charmery (hurray!) is open.

Johnny’s Ice Cream Cart is Open!

Johnnys Ice Cream Cart

catch of the day fish (2)Summer—as far as we’re concerned—is ice cream season. There are those who enjoy scoops and cones year round, but for us, ice cream was clearly meant to be enjoyed on hot days only—preferably outside, in the sun, sitting on a bench or the grass. And we’re sure if we took a poll of local schoolchildren, they’d agree. They, like us, would also probably be grateful to anyone who’s still peddling homemade ice cream and keeping it real with classic flavors like vanilla, chocolate, and their other traditional-flavor brethren. Where to go for such a thing? Well, as of a few days ago, the Johnny’s ice cream cart is open, and will be every sunny day this summer. Here’s hoping there are lots of them.
