A paparazzi- worthy farewell to Blue Marble’s Atlantic Ave location

October 18, 2010

Sadly, Brooklyn favorite Blue Marble Ice Cream is closing it’s flagship store on Atlantic Avenue. For the last 3 years, it’s lovely storefront has supplied many of us with award-winning ice cream, a cozy play space and a nice place to sit and have a chat.

Blue Marble is planning a farwell fundraiser to their Atlantic Ave space on Sunday, October 24th with family activities, raffles, pumpkins from 11 am- 5 pm and then they are turning it up from 6 pm – 11 pm with light bites, bubbly and ice cream to raise money for their non-profit ice cream shop in Rwanda.  Celebrity scoopers will be on hand from 7-9 pm to dish up your delight including Billy Crudup, Sarah Paulson, Cherry Jones, Michael Showalter, Dylan Baker, Frederick Weller and other surprise guests. At $25 per person or $50 per family, this would be your chance to rub ice cream cones with celebs and do something good for the families in Rwanda.

Don’t worry, Blue Marble is keeping their other shops open:

196 Court Street
Cobble Hill

186 Underhill Ave
Prospect Heights
