Gourmet Ice Cream Sandwich Bikes Debut Tonight
The ice cream sandwich-serving bikes from CreamCycle make their first public appearance at 8 p.m. tonight at Kushi Izakaya & Sushi during a concert with Tamagawa University Taiko Drumming and Dance Troupe.
The bikes are the brainchild of Boveda and The Caucus Room Brasserie chef Carlos Delgado, who's previously worked at Volt and Smith Commons. He's teamed up with local pedicab operator Nick Smith to customize old Good Humor bikes with iPod docks and stereo systems. Toki Underground partner Jeff Jetton, his brother Ryan Jetton, and Alexis Thornlow, who's done branding for Toki Underground and Drafting Table, are also backing the venture.
Tonight you'll find two flavors created by Delgado: jalapeño ice cream with chocolate cookie and a spice chocolate ice cream with chocolate cherry cookie. Both are $5.
Thornlow says they hope to have all three CreamCycle bikes on the road by the end of the month. Follow them on Twitter to track their locations during the day and in the evenings. You can also find the sandwiches at Smucker Farms market at 2118 14th St. NW, and Bean & Bite will carry them soon too. Check out a sample flavor menu below.
