Ice Cream for Grown-ups
Who doesn't love ice cream? Learn to make your own at this fun class with Cindy McKinney from 3-5 p.m. Friday at the Lynden Library, 216 Fourth St.
She’ll demonstrate a trio of delicious frozen treats including a decadent Jack Daniel's spiked bourbon-maple-bacon ice cream for grown-up taste buds; a sweet and tangy strawberry chevre ice cream using local berries and cheese; and a refreshing blackberry sorbet you'll want to make all summer long.
In addition, participants will make a couple of quick ice cream toppings. This event is for ages 21 years and older. Space is limited, registration required. Details: 360-354-4883, wcls.org.
Pizza at Pizza’zza
Pizza’zza will celebrate the opening of its new and improved location in Fairhaven with live music, games and beer garden from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday at 1501 12th St.
For nearly 14 years, Pizza’zza operated as a carryout counter inside Yorky’s Market on 12th Street in Fairhaven. The space now boasts an expanded kitchen, complete with two Wood Stone ovens, seating for 74 and custom hardwood furniture and fixtures created by local craftsmen.
The updated location also includes a custom-built beer and wine program and craft bottle shop. The opening draft system will include 18 taps with beer, wine, cider, kombucha and soda. The bottle shop selection will feature specialty and limited release bottles and cans, as well as local and imported six-packs and cases to go.
Owner Will Annett, who bought Pizza’zza in 2007, and co-owner Erica Lamson, a nutritionist, have worked for years to bring organic and locally sourced ingredients to Bellingham homes and dinner tables.
Pizza’zza has a second location – opened in 2013 – inside the Yorky’s Market on Alabama Street, as well as a food truck, Pizza’zza Mobile, that hit the streets April 2016. Annett and Lamson recently acquired the Delicious Mischief food truck, which launched the first week in June with a Cajun menu.
