A rotating exhibit of the things I love most about living in San Francisco.

Humphry Slocombe‘s played host to a birthday party- slash- ice-cream-mashup this summer, 22 August, and the result of this hot-mess conflagration-of-coolness turned out to be one of the most memorable parties of the year. The birthday boy was Doug Quint of the infamous Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. Haven’t heard of it yet? It’s a roving ice cream truck out of New York, and it has a cult following there. The man himself chose Humphry Slocombe’s as the site of his party, and dished up a special flavor on-the-spot, Tranny Smackdown:

(“tranny padding” (shortbread baked by Humphry’s Jake Godby), Slocombe strawberry ice cream and marshmallow fluff, smeared “mascara” (dark chocolate sauce), and smeared “lipstick” (Amarena cherry sauce), all topped with Trix cereal.)

Add to the mix Quint’s long-time friend, rocker and former Go-Go Jane Wiedlin, who lives in the Mission(!!) and who, in the column of coolest. birthday. present. ever. debuted her new song Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, a gift for Quint (which you can download on iTunes here)

Rounding out the glamouratti: Yay! Sprinkles and Beach Blanket Babylon were on hand to provide the requisite chic flair, together with lots (and lots) of rainbow balloons…
