The Future of Ice Cream
New York
REPORTER: Alyssa Brown



With flavors like Cookie Butter Blondie, Vietnamese Iced Coffee, and Vanilla Malt Cookie Dough, this Brooklyn-based artisanal ice cream company isn’t just making our mouths water. They’re also a woman-run food business that doesn’t mess around when it comes to quality, growth, entrepreneurship, and all-around lady bossing. Now available in over 2,000 stores across the States, we'd say this artisanal ice cream company is one worth looking out for. It’s only natural that we’d go to one of their founders for our Real Woman Report of the week.

CEO Crista Freeman recently gave us the mega-scoop on how she and her partner launched Phin & Phebes Ice Cream out of their Brooklyn kitchen and she tops it off with a cherry by telling us all about how she learned to trust her gut.  More sweetness below. And if you happen to see her around Brooklyn, maybe throw a high-five her way, but please don't call her honey.


Words by Crista Freeman, CEO/Co-Founder of Phin & Phebes

Holy Matcha
REPORTER: The Venue Report

We’re all about the new new here at The Venue Report so when we received an invite to Holy Matcha’s opening party, we jumped at the opportunity to see this anticipated spot first hand. Situated in the heart of North Park, a trendy foodie neighborhood, Holy Matcha is ready to assume the title of San Diego’s newest “must know” place. Get your Instagram ready, this all pink and palm cafe couldn’t be more photo worthy with it’s marble counter, brass fixtures, velvet pink booth, and palm print wallpaper. Seriously ‘grammers, this place is a photo snapping oasis. Oh, and they serve some pretty darn good (and inventive) matcha concoctions. We sampled coconut matcha, lemonade matcha, and almond matcha while sushi was served and guests mingled and obsessed over the design. We even got an on-the-spot matcha making tutorial from the barista, Mahala.

The ladies of BayBird PR also gave us the exclusive that Holy Matcha is about to be San Diego’s hottest new venue for not only weekend visits but baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties and social events. No surprises here though as nothing rivals this unique, one-of-a-kind space in San Diego thus far. Talk about a matcha made in heaven.

Maison Lautrec
REPORTER: Alyssa Brown



With its gorgeous historic buildings, inspiring street style, plentiful art scene, and incredible gastronomic experiences, Paris is surely on everyone’s bucket list. While the arrondissements near the River Seine tend to get a lot of tourists in and out, it’s the neighborhoods that spiral away from the river that exude that artsy, local vibe that should be at the top of your travel agenda.

Set in the vibrant area of Pigalle, a haven for Bohemians, artists, and trendsetters, Maison Lautrec is a café that’s as cozy and welcoming as your neighborhood restaurant, but a much cooler, Parisian version. If spending an afternoon sipping champagne and eating tarte tatin dripping in caramel sauce in a cooler-than-classic Parisian bistro is on your bucket list, this place is your dream come true.
