If you like ice cream then you’ll love the Little Man Ice Cream Shop located in the lower Highlands (Lo-Hi) neighborhood. You can’t miss the huge, milk tin can building with a bunch of tables and large umbrellas out in front. And the Little Man is not just an ice cream store, it’s become a neighborhood gathering place with lots of fun events throughout the year. This Friday, September 17th, they are having a 50s Sock Hop. There will be a DJ playing classic tunes on the dance floor, photos with Elvis, hot dogs, ice cream (of course), and lots of poodle skirts! So, come dressed up in your best 50′s attire this Friday from 6-9pm. Every Sunday afternoon, they have live bluegrass music playing. Wednesday’s are retro movie night. There will be a pumpkin carving contest in October and there seem to be quite a few hula hoop contests throughout the year.
The Little Man is a fun and unique ice cream shop that also makes a point to give back to the local community and with their Scoop for Scoop program, they’re also helping 3rd world villages. For every scoop of ice cream purchased, Little Man Ice Cream donates one scoop of rice to hungry villages in Ethiopia and Myanmar.
With all of the fun events and community service, I almost forgot to talk about the ice cream…. really yummy, homemade ice cream and gelato with all kinds of unique flavors such as Cupcake, Salted Oreo and Mexican Chocolate just to name a few. The lines can be long, especially on hot summer days, but it moves quickly and is absolutely worth the wait!
Loving life in Denver!
