The ice creams
Just a small selection of the many, many sample cups of ice cream we had to eat to vote for a winner. My job is hard.
The contestants were furiously scooping away.
Vibrant cotton candy ice cream to bring out the sweet toothed child in you.
So many cups.
Matt, our gracious host
Matt—the founder an overlord of the Takedowns—hosted the event. He was also selling tea towels with the ice cream takedown artwork featuring eyeballs strangling a horse, "which is kind of what the takedowns are all about."
The prizes await the awards ceremony.

2nd was Jersey Corn + Cardamom.

1st prize People's Choice went (by a landslide) to Jill Strominger's mojito ice cream.
