There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
Saturday night’s alright for biting, get a little ice cream in.
Elton John won’t be there tomorrow, but when Ice Cream Jubilee‘s second location opens along the 14th Street corridor at noon, you can bet to hear notes of joy from the new store. Splitting a space with BakeHouse at 1407 T St. NW, Victoria Lai‘s foray into Northwest will offer its signature homemade waffle cones, quarter-pound cookies, sundaes, and almost 20 flavors of its eponymous treat, including Pumpkin Honeycomb and Salty Apple Cinnamon for the arrival of fall. The first 100 customers between noon and 1 p.m. will get a free scoop each, the store notes.
Last month, Lai told City Paper the site will be replete with freezer storage so the ice cream keeps coming, and it’ll feature hot drinks with temperatures getting cooler. “We’re going to see how we can push the envelope,” she said.
Cherry Blossom Creative designed the space. Ice Cream Jubilee’s original venue is located at 301 Water St. SE.
Here are the flavors eager ice cream fans can expect tomorrow, per Lai: Banana Bourbon Caramel, Bold Vanilla, Caramel Popcorn, Chocolate Chocolate, Coconut Lychee Lime (sorbet), Cold Brew Coffee, Cookies & Cookie Dough, Dark & Stormy, Fresh Minty Chip, Gin & Tonic (sorbet), Grapefruit Campari (sorbet), Honey Lemon Lavender, MarionBerry (a pun on D.C.’s late “Mayor for Life,” Marion Barry), Passionfruit Guava (sorbet), Pumpkin Honeycomb, Salty Apple Cinnamon, Snickers Snickerdoodle, Strawberry White Chocolate, and Thai Iced Tea.
