No, not that double rainbow, nor this one, but Sunday is all about some serious rainbow power, and ice cream, because Douglas Quint of Manhattan’s Big Gay Ice Cream Truck is comin’ to town! Quint will be serving a special sundae created with Humphry Slocombe’s Jake Godby. (Since The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck is known for their soft-serve ice cream with toppings like wasabi pea dust, or dulce de leche, you know that sundae is going to be creative.)

And just to add some extra SF campiness, Beach Blanket Babylon’s Glinda the Good Witch (Chavé Alexander) will be there to help pass out the sundaes. And that’s not all: The Go-Go’s Jane Wiedlin will also be in attendance for the premiere of her never-before-heard theme song, “The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck.” I mean, come on—someone might explode into a glitter cloud. It all goes off this Sunday August 22nd at 7pm at Humphry Slocombe. 2790 Harrison St. at 24th St.

It’s down to the wire: the voting on the top 20 videos for ~PROTEINU’S WHO’S YOUR BUTCHER? ~ contest ends tomorrow, Saturday August 21st, with the contest winner announced on Sunday. Local Bay Area talent includes Dave the Butcher, Mark Pasternak of Devil’s Gulch, Mark Dommen of One Market, and Scott Brennan of Café Rouge, so check it out! The winner will receive an all-expenses-paid, four-day trip to an “all-star” butcher retreat August 29th-31st at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina. Additionally, the winner will come out for Primal Napa on September 23rd-25th in St. Helena at Chase Cellars. Good luck to all.
