South Congress Hotel Ice Cream Showdown

Jul 14, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm

We’re rollin’ with the homies, y’all. New Waterloo corporate executive pastry chef (and total betty) Amanda Rockman is back for the 2nd Annual Ice Cream Showdown at South Congress Hotel. The reigning champ will co-host alongside Joe Barlow, host of KXAN Studio512 and A Cup of Joe, as Austin’s best pastry chefs go scoop-to-scoop in a freezingly fierce competition. 

Here’s how it works: 
+ Head to the SCH courtyard and purchase your scoop tickets from the Stephen F. Frostin’ ice cream truck. Each scoop is $3–try one, or try ‘em all! 
+ Cast your vote at your favorite chef’s table by 8:15. 
+ Stick around to see the winner crowned as we kick off a free screening of “Clueless” in the SCH courtyard.
