Saturday Florence Update

Hurricane Florence’s impact has been lighter than we expected, so for now we plan to be open today, Saturday September 15th, from 1:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Of course, there is still rain and wind expected today, so things may change if we experience power outages or flooding issues. If all goes well, we expect to be open our regular hours (noon to 10:00 pm) tomorrow and Monday.

Stay safe!

Hurricane Florence Plans

Like many of you, we have been watching the shifting forecasts trying to plan for getting through hurricane Florence’s impact. Here’s what we’ve decided on so far.

It looks like rain and wind will be starting this evening (Thursday 9/13). For the safety of our staff, we will be closing at 6:00 pm. While we’re open during the day all ice cream, coffee and pastries will be 20% off.

We also intend to be closed Friday and Saturday. What happens beyond Saturday will depend on how the weather progresses. If we get bad power outages or water damage, we may need several extra days to clean up and/or restock. If the storm is extra mild, we may be able to reopen Saturday but with limited hours/menu/staff.

Please stay safe, and thanks for reading!

Holiday Season News

It’s that time of year again, and we have a few quick updates to share.

Holiday Closings

Like many businesses, we’re going to be closed for part of the holiday season to make sure all of our staff have the opportunity for some time off. We have two closures to announce.

  1. We’ll be closed for the one day on Monday, December 14th for our staff party
  2. We’ll also close from December 24th to January 1st. We’ll reopen on January 2nd.

Please plan your ice cream eating accordingly! If you need to stock up on ice cream, we’ll be having another pint sale before the holiday closure (if you really need a lot, you can pre-order gallons right on our site).

Sufganiyot!

Sufganiyot!Hanukkah (we’re just going with Wikipedia’s spelling) will be here at sunset tonight, so once again we’re serving up Sufganiyot. No preorders this time; it’s first come, first served, while supplies last. We’ll have them today, Sunday, December 6th, and Tuesday, December 8th. The fillings are raspberry or quince jam. These are vegan!

Extra-exciting crossover news!

1449253572996Our friends from Runaway Clothes (the folks who brought you DURM apparel) are opening their own flagship retail shop right around the corner from us in early 2016. But if you want to browse their collection in person before the holidays, you can do it at The Parlour! They’ll be using part of our expanded dining room to set up a pop-up shop here December 10th–23rd! So you can stop by for ice cream and get some holiday gifts at the same time. Don’t forget to wash your hands before handling the merchandise!
