Tomorrow: Free Ice Cream At Humphry Slocombe To Sweeten What's Left Of 2016Photos: Humphry Slocombe

To celebrate its eighth anniversary, Humphry Slocombe is handing out free scoops of ice cream at its Mission shop (2790 Harrison St.) tomorrow, December 28th. The free scoops will be available all day, from 1-11pm. 

The scoops are gratis as "a thank you for eight awesome years," but after picking up a cup or cone, the ice creamery is encouraging customers to donate to Project Open Hand, which serves nutritious meals to seniors and critically ill people, and will be on-site for the event. 

A Christmas Story ice cream.

Jake Godby and Sean Vahey opened the first Humphry Slocombe in the Mission in December 2008. (A second location at the Ferry Building, which is not participating in tomorrow's promotion, debuted in 2014.)  

Named for two characters in the British sitcom “Are You Being Served?”, the shop is known for unique flavors like Secret Breakfast (bourbon and cornflakes), brown butter, and Blue Bottle Vietnamese coffee.

Some seasonal flavors that might be available at tomorrow's event include white miso pear, Guinness gingerbread, persimmon lychee sorbet, and A Christmas Story (Tahitian vanilla ice cream with peppermint bark and sugar cookies). Stop by to end your 2016 on a sweet note.
