1) THE ILLUSTRATOR BREXBOLEX Beautiful, just beautiful: Brexbolex’s Seasons. The French illustrator’s book pairs well with every season,  especially spring. 2) THE GREASY HANDS PREACHERS We’re down with anything that features footage of Utah’s freaky sci-fi landscape, the Bonneville Salt Flats: 3) FLY GOLDEN EAGLE In heavy rotation at Jeni’s Mothership, Quartz Bijou, the rollicking…

5 Friday L.A. Scoops

In celebration of the opening of our first West Coast shop, this week’s edition of 5 Friday Scoops centers on a quintet of L.A. things we love—some from the week that was, some from recent visits, and some from years gone by. Here we go: 1) THE TAO OF VAN HALEN, 1978-1984 “I live my life…

Stevie Nicks - Bobby Silver

Jeni’s Mothership Muse: Stevie Nicks

The kitchen, bakery, and shipping squads. The accounting, social media, and sales troupes. Jeni has always referred to those who bring the ice cream to life and get it to you, the people, as “rock stars.” So, when we moved the Jeni’s Mothership to a base near the North Market late last year, we knew we…

L.A. Plants For Pints: March 13-15

We’ve got a lot going on these days in Los Angeles. Our Los Feliz shop—our first-ever West Coast spot—will open soon. Stay tuned!

1) THIS WINTER SNOPIARY When winter life gives you lemons, don’t bother with lemonade, make a giant snow elephant. That’s what an anonymous snopiary artist did this past week in Goodale Park, near our Short North and North Market scoop shops. 2) THIS WIRED MAGAZINE FEATURE ON THE PRICES OF BETTER RECORDS With winter hanging on, there’s no time…

5 Friday Scoops, Vol. 23

1) THE DALLAS HOME MAKEOVER Under the watchful eye of the Man in Black (who would have been 83 today, by the way), we’d love to make a meal in this re-tooled kitchen. Check out the entire house makeover featured on Design Sponge. 2) THE FLAVOR THESAURUS First published in 2010, The Flavor Thesaurus teaches the language of flavor, and…

  1) DOG PRANCING Every year we watch the contestants in the Westminster Kennel Club’s Annual Dog Show and we can’t believe these prancing, manicured showstoppers are descendants of wolves. Exhibit A: Miss P, the sweet, little 15-inch, four-year-old Canadian beagle who won 2015’s Best in Show on Tuesday in Madison Square Garden. Miss P—who loves sleeping…

5 Friday Scoops, Vol. 21

  1) ALL 141 SNL CAST MEMBERS RANKED  If you’re on a Valentine’s date this weekend, don’t miss the limited return of our Bangkok Sundae in all our scoop shops. The gorgeous, plated beauty for two will be served with the two Convo Cookies—waffle cone cookies lined with conversation-starting topics such as “Beatles or Rolling Stones?” and “Silver…
