uwishunu About Conversations on Cool

Philadelphia has a long running love affair with cool summer treats. The city’s history and love of summer refreshments like ice cream, root beer floats and water ice date back over a century.

To that end, on Wednesday, July 20, from 6–8 p.m., the Philadelphia History Museum will be hosting “Conversations on Cool: The Delicious History of Warm Weather Treats.”

The Food Network’s Marc Summers will host this informative and tasty event featuring panelists from Philly’s chill-inspired industry including the 5th Generation owner of Bassett’s Ice Cream, the 3rd Generation owner of John’s Water Ice and The Franklin Fountain’s founding brothers.

Tastes of the Philly-favorite products will be available, including ice cream from the 150 year old Bassett’s, turn of the century inspired Franklin Fountain, and water ice from John’s which has been a Philadelphia favorite since 1945 and which President Obama recently visited.

There will also be Root Beer Floats, which can be made either with or without Philadelphia’s own ROOT liqueur.
