Bob's is going on a road trip!
Ever heard of a pop-up? Some of us here at Bob's hadn't, either. A pop-up is what it's called when one business sets up camp at another business and gets to show off some of their signature items to an audience that has maybe never seen them before. And that's what we're doing! We're hitting the road on April 30 for a night at Belly Wine Bar in Cambridge, MA.
A wine bar, you ask? YES. Bob's is teaming up for a warm-weather kickoff at a great wine bar with a rockin' patio and picnic tables and strings of lights overhead and some of the most beautiful evening atmosphere you've ever seen in the city. Liz Vilardi, the resident wine expert at Belly, has paired each dish Bob's is presenting with a white wine. And we are super excited.
Tickets are $19 each, and they include one Bob's clam roll, oyster roll, or lobster roll, and one of three white wines. Other Bob's specialties are available for purchase, as well, including our hand-breaded onion rings and our classic clam chowder. If you feel like heading down there with us from 5-9pm on April 30, tell your friends and secure your dinner! Snag your tickets at this event page and be sure to get the night off from work!
As the day draws closer, we'll keep posting about the event and maybe even put up some pictures of the tent we're making for that night. We can't wait! We hope you can make it!
Bob's has been serving ice cream for more than a quarter of a century. Which brand we've had on the menu--Annabelle's, Ben & Jerry's--has changed several times over the years. We think that the ice cream we carry today, Mount Desert Island Ice Cream, is our best ice cream yet!
What's so special about it? Well, besides the fact that it's made in Maine (the way ice cream should be--that's the state motto, right?), and besides the fact that it's all-natural, hormone-free cream (does that mean it's healthy?!), Mount Desert Island Ice Cream serves flavors you just can't get anywhere else, like... Bay of Figs? Lemon Poppyseed with Blackberry Swirl? BUTTERBEER? (Shout out to our sister restaurant, Lil's--they love HP over there!)
Here are a couple of our favorites that are on the menu right now:
Reverse Root Beer Float (mostly vanilla with the perfect amount of root beer thrown in)
... and Brigadeiro (intense cocoa with a caramel undertone)
We also have Vietnamese Cinnamon, Honey Baked Apple Pie, and Salt Caramel. In the cooler months, we try to stick to the more traditional flavors... but soon we will have:
... Coffee Oreo
... Cranberry Cheesecake
... Wingnut (Coffee ice cream with chocolate-covered espresso beans!)
... and that delicious Lemon Poppyseed with Blackberry Swirl we already mentioned!
Not sure if you're feeling adventurous? Ask for a sample at our ice cream window! We don't serve anything we don't like, and we stand behind our ice cream for having the freshest, seasonal ingredients possible to keep the quality top-notch. It's getting warmer out there.... Why not come in for a scoop? ;-)
Do you have a burger craving? Bob's has two special burgers just for you. Try our new Slaw Burger with pickles and housemade slaw or our O-Ring Burger with hand breaded rings, pickles, and chipotle mayo.
We make our burgers with Meyer's all natural and humanely raised ground beef.
