Rejoice fans of the uber-ice cream shop Salt & Straw, opening September 13 in Larchmont Village. While a few offerings have been available at Joan’s on Third for quite some time, along with the ice cream truck,…this brick & mortar is the first major expansion for the specialty shop, which plans to use the bounty of local ingredients and produce in Southern California to its advantage.
The storefront has a lovely wooden facade while inside, expect a bevy of flavors such as sweet almonds, poppy liquer, and even butter & salt doughnuts from Sidecar.
Hours will run 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week, with single scoops for $4.25 and doubles for $6.25. Kids scoops will be $3.25.

Snow cream?  Late to this but willing.

A trend that is quickly taking hold in some of the nation’s most popular food cities, including Los Angeles and Las Vegas, this cold dessert is a bit hard to describe.
The most popular “shavery” in Los Angeles, Blockheads, describes it as a combination of Hawaiian shave ice and ice cream.

Video footage at the very edge of molten magma in a pretty cool, pretty hot, pretty dramatic, and maybe pretty risky video but thanks for sharing, right??!!

Geoff Mackley, Bradley Ambrose, Nathan Berg, after an epic struggle with the weather for 35 days, … became the first people ever to get this close to Marum Volcano’s famed lava lake on Ambrym Island, Vanuatu. Coming within 30 metres of the lava lake down a watercourse, it was possible to stand the heat for only 6 seconds. With Fire Brigade breathing apparatus and heat proof proximity suit it was possible to stand on the very edge and view the incredible show for over 40 minutes.

With a distinctive style influenced by religious art, Italian emigre Mo Coppoletta is among the UK’s leading tattoo artists. His parlour, the rather ominously named The Family Business, in the atmospheric Exmouth Market is the place to get inked in London.

Note that appointments with the artists must be booked months in ahead.
