Frankie and Jo's and Herbivore Botanicals Ice Cream Collab
What happens when two local, plant-based companies join forces? Well, if it's skin care treasure Herbivore Botanicals and the fanatically beloved Frankie and Jo's ice creamery then it's a creamy, dreamy scoop of dessert. Named for and inspired by HB's Pink Cloud rosewater moisturizing cream, the September-only flavor is one part white tea coconut-cashew milk, plus one part toasted coconut milk into which vegan meringue with cardamom, rose petals, vanilla, and coconut flakes are folded. (For the social media savvy, the business duo is running a giveaway. It involves ice cream photography and hashtags. Peep Frankie and Jo's Instagram for more info.)

Rosé Wrap-Up Party at Mr. West
The end of summer is nigh, which means the season of pink wine is coming to close. (Of course you can and should drink rosé whenever you damn well please, but there's something about a crisp pink pour on those warmer days that feel just...right.) As a fond farewell Mr. West Cafe downtown will be pouring eight rosé tastes, plus some sneak-peek glasses of their fall favorites. Also: frosé, the ultimate summer beverage, until sold out. There's will also be a raffle ticket for rosé swag and tunes. It'll cost you $20, or $22 at the door.
