Ice Cream Cone: Beet ice cream, white chocolate ice cream, bacon bitters (Surprise course)
Last month, we encouraged everyone to buy tickets for the fattening, creamy wonder that is the Chicago Luxury Ice Cream Festival. Don't be fooled by the name - this isn't a fussy affair with egg cups and finger sandwiches. Anyway, the event, which had been scheduled for July, has been postponed. Now, it's going to be on August 18th and 19th.

The details are largely the same, though the list of creameries still makes us drool. There will also be pastry chefs in attendance, including Chicagoist favorite Toni Roberts, Ben Roche (of Moto) and Malika Ameen (of Top Chef: Just Desserts).

The creameries participating include:

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams of Ohio
Black Dog Gelato
Nice Cream
Via Gelato & Café
Mitchell’s Soda Shop
Bob Tail Ice Cream
Shawn Michelle’s
Angelo’s Gelato
Zingerman’s Creamery of Michigan
Graeter’s of Ohio
