It's summer and it's hot and the only antidote is cool, sweet, delicious ice cream. And on the Upper East Side, instead of just eating it, you can make your own.
Love chocolate chunks and peanut butter cups? Head to CoolMess and turn your vision into reality.
CoolMess is a great place for a kids' party, but it's an equally good spot for a ladies' date. Here's a perk: If you're of drinking age, you can order alcoholic beverages (or any, really!) from Burger Heaven downstairs, which is owned and run by the same family as CoolMess.
