Talk about a sweet week for ice cream fans: Not only can PDXers get their fix CSA-style this summer, but ice cream sandwich maven Lisa Herlinger-Esco finally has a brick-and-mortar home for her Ruby Jewel treats, according to an Oregonian report. The N. Mississippi spot — just a block away from gourmet salt and chocolate shop The Meadow — will allow guests to build their own ice cream sandwiches from a selection of flavors and cookies; the classic scoop-in-a-(handmade)-cone option will also be available. Tentative opening: this July.
