Our ice cream cravings are directly tied to the weather forecast, and as the temperature creeps into the 80s this month, we're pretty much always hankering for a frozen treat. But here's something even sweeter: Dana Cree (Pretty Cool Ice Cream) and Max Robbins (Longman & Eagle) are teaming up to launch Sundae Mondays, a weekly series that benefits Black Lives Matter Chicago.
On Monday evenings from 4pm until close, you can walk up to the to-go window at Longman & Eagle to purchase a single-scoop sundae for $5, with 100 percent of the proceeds going straight to the local chapter of Black Lives Matter. The series launches on Monday, June 22 and concludes on August 31.
Each week, a different culinary talent will be tasked with curating the sundae's toppings—and the lineup is filled with exciting names, including Thai Dang, Jonathan Zaragoza and Jennifer Contraveos, Nariba Shepherd and Val Taylor. Take a look at the full lineup below and block off your calendar on Monday nights this summer.
