Outdoor Performing Arts Festival featuring over 100 artists, food trucks, a beer garden and more!
Celebrate the return of the live arts in a safe, outdoor setting. Capitol Hill, Sep. 18-19.

Move your increasingly big ass over, Old School Custard and Molly Moon's: Bluebird Homemade Ice Cream & Tea Room opens today at 5 p.m. at 1205 E. Pike (at 12th), with free beer in celebration. Their flavors include Vivace Stumptown coffee and an Elysian stout ice cream that you have to taste to comprehend: It is incredible, in the sense of not-to-be-believed-beery-rich-and-amazing. Bluebird will also serve sandwiches and tea at lunch and dinnertime.

Former Crave chef and soon-to-be Top Chef contestant Robin Leventhal twittered:

Just tasted the Peanut Butter & Snicker doodle Ice Cream Josh is making at his Cap Hill store Bluebird. DELISCIOUS!

[Another local chef made it onto season six of Top Chef too: Ashley Merriman of Branzino.]
