Ample Hills Creamery @ 305 Nevins Street in Gowanus

Our two-hour private parties begin and end with ice cream! You learn to make ice cream the old-fashioned way, taking turns riding our custom-churning bicycle. The only one of its kind, this cream-churning bicycle was built exclusively for Ample Hills, and it’s yours when you plan your party with us. We add the ingredients, you add the pedaling power, and poof!-Ice cream magic. Then, as the ice cream hardens, partiers get crafty with a choice of projects (tote bags, picture frames, aprons or placemats). And at the end, everyone indulges by devouring their freshly spun ice cream on hot waffles with a variety of sundae bar toppings.

Includes: Ice cream, waffles, sundae bar, and craft project.
