After reading about all the ice cream going down at fred flare this week, I remembered that when Keith and Chris came here last summer they arrived with a box of Dairy Queen Buster Bars. Well, believe it or not, there is still one left in my freezer. Which just shows how little I like ice cream myself. Keith must have inherited his love of the stuff from his Dad, who could probably tell Baskin-Robbins from Haagen Dazs blindfolded.
Uh, I think this is my favorite doodlebug EVER but maybe I’m a lil’ biased?? Dunno. Anyway, thanks so much, Ailyn, for your cute order. Hope you enjoy your lamp! Don’t forget, if you want to have Amanda do a special doodle for you just ask in the special instructions at checkout. Catch ya later, alligators!
Hope you’re having a great day so far! Did anybody grab a free cone from Ben & Jerry’s yesterday? Well, fred’s ICE CREAM FESTIVAL continues today with this email dispatch asking WHAT’S YOUR FAVE FLAVOR?
I’m curious, what IS your fave flavor? Ahhh, there’s so many delicious ones to choose from it’s hard! I know when I was a kid mint chocolate chip was my total JAM so I’m gonna ask for that tonight at the 31 CENT SCOOP party at Baskin Robbins! There’s one on the way home from work.
We still have some coupons left for FREE HAAGEN DAZS so don’t forget to use discount code “ice cream” at checkout to score yours. More fine print details on this promo here. Have an awesome afternoon!
The ICE CREAM FESTIVAL has been super fun so far and it’s made me realize how much ice cream has kinda been a theme in my life and work… Does anybody remember the ice cream social we put on with the gallery Mixed Greens a couple years ago? Wow, that was so amazing. We curated a lil’ art show and set up a mini boutique in the gallery. It was a blast!
That was when we purchased the banana split drawing above from Christina Mazzalupo’s Ice Cream series. I love it! Well, I contacted Mixed Greens to see if there were any remaining drawings from this series and there are! I think they’re so amazing… They’re 19 x 13 inches and made of pigmented ink w/ gouache. I’ve numbered ‘em above and I’m happy to report that Mixed Greens is offering a special ICE CREAM FESTIVAL offer just for FF!
Normally, these drawings are $400 but this week only Mixed Greens is offering BFF’s 20% OFF this group. This is a very generous offer so many thanks to the peeps at MG! To take advantage of the discount, simply call 212-331-8888, pop by the gallery at 531 West 26th Street or you can email email@example.com for more details. Wanna learn more about Christina Mazzalupo? Click here for her bio or check out her blog. I’m very excited for her upcoming show at Mixed Greens opening May 30th! See you there!
Good morning! Sorry for my crappy screen shot but I wanted to share with you this fun tidbit we learned from reader Kathleen. Blink and you might miss it but the ice cream lamps are featured in Panic at the Disco’s vid for “Nine in the Afternoon”. I’ll add it below. More ice cream chats coming soon!

The verdict is out… I won’t be attending Madonna’s promo gig tonight at Roseland Ballroom here in NYC thanks to effing jury duty. I was hoping it’d be over yesterday, but I have to go back today instead of getting in line for free Madge tix! And as you can see from the pix, Justin will be joining M for, I’m sure, a rockin’ rendition of “4 Minutes.” Well, the day’s not a total loss, MSN will be streaming the concert LOVE tonight at 10PM EST. Okay gotta run if I’m gonna make that court date. For my complete review of Madonna’s “Hard Candy”, click here. Let’s Dance 2night!
Seriously, how excited are you that Gossip Girl is back? Even if it is for only 5 weeks or whatever, it’s just wonderful to have our fave Upper East Siders back on the Teevz scene. Now, check out these shots of the cast filming on the streets of New York this week. The weather hasn’t been the greatest, hence WTFChuck’s gay price umbrella, ella, ella! Speaking of gay pride, there’s been a lot of speculation and spoilers about who’s gonna drop the gay bomb next week… Any guesses from the peanut gallery? Also, how cute is that pick of Blakey with her fans? Presh!
Wow, Miley Cyrus’ topless photo for the new Vanity Fair has really caused a mayjah scandal. I just thought the makeup made her look like a vampire but it’s really blown up. First everyone criticized her for posing topless (’cause she’s only 15), then Miley apologized, then Vanity Fair and photographer Annie Leibovitz criticized Miley for apologizing. Tennis anyone?!? Now I guess Billy Ray and Tish ducked outta the shoot before the image in question took place and Disney is PIZZED! Damage control time. Disney wants to keep Miley outta the limelight for at least the next 6 months. OMG, do you really think that’s possible? She’ll just put more bikini shots on her MySpace page and show up at the Sex and the City movie premiere!

I swear, when a new Madonna record drops I feel like a friggin’ kid in a candy store. I just want more, more, more! I do get kinda stressed out tho. As a die-hard Madonna fan, I don’t wanna miss a thing. I want to know about all the breaking M news: what she’s wearing, what magazine covers she’ll be on and and who’s got the hottest remixes. Also, living in NYC adds to the craziness. I mean, Madge is here this week rehearsing for her promo gig at the Roseland Ballroom. She even had dinner in my hood last night at Keith McNally’s new hawt spot, Morandi. See, that’s so Madonna, she’s everywhere yet you can’t get to her. It’s so frustrating but I love it all!
Okay, Hard Candy, marks Madge’s 11 offish studio album and (hopefully) her 4th #1 record in a row. She’s ditched her “Hung Up” leotard for some urban hip hop beats with 21st century mega producers Timbaland and Pharrel Williams. M’s so genius. She always manages to put her fingers right on the pulse of the moment! Yeah, girlicious may be pushing 50, but she’s as sexy and hawt as ever! Her suga’s friggin’ RAW! Stick and Sweet!
In my previous Chartopper: Madonna reviews I could only write about each song, but with our fancy BFF blog technology, I can just let her music speak for itself. I hope you enjoy my one stop Madonna listening shop. Please come back for seconds of my all-time fave girl! Love you M!

Beat Goes On w/ Kanye West (Pharrel) Kanye just flew in from gay Paree.

i lurve ice cream! i especially love ben and jerry’s and haagen-dazs! So naturally when keith sent out that a-doorbz ecard about getting free ice cream, i was like “um, yes please”! So yesterday when i went home, i was looking at the website trying to find something i didn’t already own, so i could buy it and use the discount code “ice cream” to get a free pint of HD! (fyi, i decided on the ice cream maker and the ice cream lamp – duh).
But all this ice cream talk made me hungry for a little “phish food”, which is my fave flave. So i mo-z’ed on over to my freezer to see what we had… and in doing so, i came to the realization that i am completely obsessed with this delicious frozen treat! I had no idea how crazy i really was until i opened that freezer! i was so surprised by my discovery that i had to take a pic… please don’t think less of me. I mean the first step to recovery, is admitting there’s a problem… Maybe they have “ice cream anonymous”? Okay, so, just like any addict – even after seeing how crazy my freezer was, i still went down to the bodega and picked up another pint!
can you believe it? Sigh, some people just never learn! I’m also an ice cream pusher cuz i really don’t want you to forget, (while you’re waiting for your free haagen-dasz coupon to come in the mail… of course) you can go to your local Ben & Jerry’s TODAY ONLY for your FREE CONE!!! this year marks the 30th annual free cone day! And like Keith said… $.31 for a scoop of one of the 31 flavors TOMORROW ONLY! it’s totally a win-win situation! scoop on my peeps, scoop on!
It’s a VERY big week for ice cream… TODAY is FREE CONE DAY at Ben & Jerry’s and TOMORROW is 31 CENT SCOOP NIGHT at Baskin Robbins! Life is GOOD. If any of you are waiting in line at either of these festivities, would you pls oh pls do me the awesome favor of snapping some pics? I’d love to see some of the crazy turnouts. And, jus’ sayin, if you don’t feel like waiting in line we still have about 50 coupons for a pint of FREE HAAGEN DAZS. Just enter discount code “ice cream” at checkout. More details about that promo here and more ice cream-related fun throughout the week. Enjoy!
