Our generation’s mark on the Portland bridge infatuation. The Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People, takes Bridgetown’s total count of river spanning structures to twelve! And this one has been done in true neo-Portlandian anti-car fashion; becoming a safe-haven for walkers, bikers, and riders of TriMet buses, Portland Streetcar and MAX Orange Line—and ice cream lovers! We’re dedicating our Bitter Orange & Olive Oil ice cream flavor this month to the new MAX Orange Line and the epic-ness that comes with such a beautiful bridge. Our olive oil ice cream (made with Arbequina olive oil from Red Ridge Farms!) is stark and clean like the white lines of the Tilikum Crossing’s support cables. Meanwhile, a splash of bitter orange marmalade glides through this ice cream like our hometown MAX trains. In celebration of these new additions to Portland’s transportation scene, we’ll be donating a percentage of proceeds from sales of this special flavor to Ride Connection who provides responsive, accessible transportation options for those in need.
In addition to our shops, we’ll also be scooping this flavor at the Tilikum Crossing First Light event on September 10 and at the Orange Line Grand Opening Celebration on September 12 (at the Clinton Street stop). We’d love to see you for a scoop!
