Hammond’s Gourmet Ice Cream had their soft opening today at 3077 University in North Park. Located just west of Urbn Pizza and part-owned by a good friend of ours, they’re serving 32 delicious flavors of Hawaiian Tropical Dreams ice cream just in time for summer:

Between today and their appearance at the North Park festival a few weeks back, my favorite ice cream samples have been Salted Caramel, Chocolate Coconut Macadamia Nut, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo. Jay’s Mint Chocolate Chip featured full-size chocolate morsels, not those chopped-up bits. I have to stick with sorbet for the most part and they’ve got 4 flavors, all of which are tasty.

The interior has some cool touches, like the rack of ice cream serving spoons:

…and the sundae glass chandelier:

I also like the gathering table made of a thick slab of eucalyptus from a local tree that fell over. And there’s a street-facing counter where you can watch University and North Park grow more vibrant by the day.

Description: The first meeting of the stakeholders group formed to advise SANDAG on the development of the Bayshore Bikeway through Barrio Logan has been scheduled for December 1, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. We are contacting you about this meeting because you have indicated an interest in this project. Light refreshments will be provided.

The meeting will be held at the Woodbury University School of Architecture on 2212 Main St. in Barrio Logan. This first meeting will be an opportunity for us to present the project objectives and how it fits into the SANDAG regional bike program. We will describe the work done to date to identify the opportunities and challenges in determining a project alignment and design, and to hear from the stakeholders about their interests and concerns regarding the project. This is the first of two planned stakeholders group meeting. It is a public meeting , so other interested members of the community like you who are welcome to attend. A public workshop also is planned later in the planning process to get broad public input.

More information about the SANDAG Regional Bike Program and the Bayshore Bikeway is available on the Keep San Diego Moving website where notices of this and future meetings will be posted.
