(Courtesy Humphry Slocombe)By Angela Hill | ahill@bayareanewsgroup.com | Bay Area News GroupPUBLISHED: September 11, 2017 at 1:00 pm | UPDATED: September 11, 2017 at 4:46 pmAt least the recent hot weather in the Bay Area served up a sweet silver lining: a screaming desire for ice cream.And that desire has been fulfilled, especially for the cult followers of Humphry Slocombe’s.For more food and drink coveragefollow us on Flipboard.The SF-based ice cream company, founded by Jake Godby and Sean Vahey in 2008 and known for its wild and wacky flavors (like Hibiscus Beet Sorbet, Elvis: The Fat Years and Here’s Your Damn Strawberry), opened its first East Bay site in Oakland a couple of weeks ago. Mmmm, “First East Bay Site.” That could be one of their flavors!The new Humphry Slocombe can be found at The Hive in Oakland’s Uptown district, a shopping/gathering space that’s already home to hip spots like Drake’s Dealership brewery and Firebrand Artisan Breads.And you can’t miss Humphry Slocombe. For one, there’s probably a huge, long line. Plus, the ice cream stand is in an electric-blue shipping container, just across from Peoples Barber & Shop.They do indeed plan Oakland-centric flavors, like Oatlandish — a combo of Drake’s stout and oatmeal cookie.Like the Oakland Tribune Facebook page for more conversation and news coverage from Oakland and beyond.Humphry Slocombe is at 2335 Broadway (between 24th and 25th streets), Oakland; open 1 to 11 p.m. Monday-Thursday, noon to midnight Friday-Saturday and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday; www.humphryslocombe.com.

Sisters Sweet Shoppe – Ice Cream, Cookies, & Candy – New Store Design – Episode 8

I first meet with Kurt Dehner, owner of Sisters Sweet Shoppe , Dublin, Ohio, USA, on April 15, 2015. I was introduced by my good friend Matt Wilicoxin with Johnson’s Real Ice Cream, Columbus, OH. I had the pleasure to work with Kurt on the design & layout of his new shoppe. See below how Kurt and the team went from a rough design to a finished beautiful store layout.

Clementine’s Naughty and Nice Creamery, St. Louis, MO, Customer spotlight October 2015

I had the pleasure to meet Clementine’s Naughty and Nice Creamery owner, Tamara Keefe, at the NICRA 2014 show in Lexington, KY. Tamara and I talked about the challenges of opening a new business let alone an ice cream shop.  She was looking for quality ice cream dipping cabinets that would display her great tasting handcrafted ice creams.

She purchased several C. Nelson  Curved-Glass ice cream dipping cabinets.
