An ice-cream carnival is coming to Chefs Club Counter

Step right up to the greatest show on Earth! Okay, no, it's not Dear Evan Hansen, but it is an ice-cream–themed carnival pop-up from Oddfellows inside Nolita's Chefs Club Counter. And yes, they're bringing a red tent and all. 

Decorated like an old-fashioned circus, the red-and-white space will feature an old-school photo booth, lightbulb signage and vintage cymbal-clapping toy monkeys. What's more, guests will be greeted by jugglers and stilt walkers every Saturday, and admit-one tickets will be distributed in order to enter the jamboree. 

And, of course, the cones will be carnival-themed as well. Treats include Cotton Candy Creamsicle (vanilla-tangerine swirl wrapped in cotton candy and topped with Pop Rocks), Concession Stand (caramel-popcorn soft serve with topped with salted-caramel popcorn and chocolate pearls) and the Pink Dip (raspberry-sherbet soft serve with pink chocolate dip, freeze-dried raspberries and gold dust). 

The circus comes to town on June 21 and lasts throughout the summer.
