Summer is a terrible time.

UNLIMITED  ICE CREAMZ MADE BY BROOKLYN’S FINEST HOME COOKS, DOODS!!!!

TICKETS HERE (TICKET LINK COMING SOON)!

Check out this year’s Ice Cream art, by Nikklas åkerblad – the Swedish artist who did most of the promo art for the World’s Dopest Video Game: Hotline Miami!!!!  I tracked him down via Skype, and he’s a raging homicidal maniac who just wants to help out!  Did you know?  Ice Cream Ronins roam the earth in secret- hired assassins who’s only reward is more ice creamz!!!!

2015 Brooklyn Mac and Cheeze Brontosaurus Attak!

Here’s the wrap up – you had to see it to believe it!  A 20 ton Mac and Cheeze Kaiju spiraled into existance from a cheeze typhoon created by 25 local home cooks – it stomped around The Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club, destroying everything in its path with its power cheeze breath while everyone laughed and laughed!  Sadly, the kaiju emits special xray power rays that render photographs impossible.

Here are all the winners and stuff!  Thank you, cooks!!!!!!  You are the best people ever! Continue reading
