Mitchell's Ice Cream has been an iconic south side treat since 1931. To celebrate its launch of pints in grocery stores across Chicagoland, Mitchell’s will provide sweet relief around town with complimentary samples from its vintage-inspired ice cream carts.
The first ice cream social will be Tuesday, August 12 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. (or until samples run out) at the corners of Randolph and Michigan, and the Daley Center. Mitchell's will host ice cream socials all summer, so be sure to follow them on social media to find out where they'll pop up next.
