Hitting up Bluebird Ice Cream is like going into a time machine and stepping out to an old school soda fountain. There are vintage kitchen gadgets like rusted hand-crank churners, an antique cash register, diner-style glass sundae cups, and some metal knobs and levers whose functions are unknown but look cool. Bring your steady and buy her a double-scoop of peanut butter and chocolate chunk (Bluebird’s best flavors, especially together) in a sweet homemade waffle cone. She’ll be wearing your pin and letterman jacket in no time.
