Big Gay Ice Cream started out humbly in 2009 as a part-time, seasonal ice cream truck in New York City.

Founders Douglas Quint and Bryan Petroff are now focusing on growing their Big Gay Ice Cream brand.

That same week saw the publication of “Big Gay Ice Cream Book: Saucy Stories and Frozen Treats,” their first cookbook. Join the two ice cream wizards for a book signing and history lesson. Using milestones as their guide: 1874 (Baked Alaska), 1886 (Coca-Cola), 1904 (Banana Split), 1936 ("Gone with the Wind”), 1936 (Trader Vic’s), and 1940 (Mountain Dew), guests will be treated to a multi-course dessert tasting menu through the earliest decades of the modern dessert - Big Gay Style. All of the tableware and flatware will be on loan from NYC’s beloved Fishs Eddy store, bubbly will be served throughout the event, and everyone will get to leave with a copy of their cookbook.
