Before I retired from the Pleasant Valley Fire Department (PVFD), we held ice cream socials every third weekend during the summer months. Not only was this a great way to get to know our neighbors, it gave us an opportunity to educate people about fire prevention and safety. Some think we had our socials as an excuse to show off the trucks to the kids and chow down on ice cream. Perhaps, perhaps.
If an ice cream social for a worthy cause sounds good to you, swing by the B&O American Brasserie in Baltimore from 5 to 7 p.m. today (sorry for the last minute head’s up). A Kimpton Restaurant, B&O American Brasserie’s social will benefit Dress For Success. Don’t sweat it if you’re not in Baltimore. All Kimpton Restaurants nationwide are having ice cream socials today with unique flavors created just for the event.
You don’t need a special event to have your very own ice cream social. Call the neighbors, family and friends. Have everyone bring a little something to the party and enjoy. Just keep a hose handy to wash down sticky fingers.
