"LICK" OPENS TONIGHT! New Ice Cream Parlor in town!!

Hey Folks,

After the common council meeting, I say we go and get some ice cream! It's a beautiful day!



LICK, a distinctive ice cream parlor with an innovative menu, will be opening its doors in Hudson this month. Proprietor and local resident, Michael Harris is committed to providing sweet-seekers in Hudson and beyond with creative presentations of premium ice cream, sundaes, shakes, sorbets, smoothies, espresso and cookies, in a warm, welcoming environment.

Harris, who grew up on a small farm in the Finger Lakes, is passionate about reclaiming the simplicity of his roots by offering the highest quality, natural products from sources as local as possible. In keeping with this vision, the fare at LICK represents a collaboration of some of the finest nearby suppliers available. LICK proudly features Jane’s Ice Cream homemade in small batches in the Hudson Valley. The milk for the milkshakes will be supplied by a local farm. The cookies are baked in Hudson. Harris also believes in helping to preserve our environment by using biodegradable paper products, spoons and straws from its take away location on Warren Street. “All our ingredients, from the cream to the sugar and fruit, will be the real thing, as will the hot fudge for our sundaes,” Harris says. “The berries for our seasonal compotes will come directly from the numerous fruit farms here in our region.”

Dedicated to delight in its myriad forms, Harris has designed an ingenious menu for every taste, from the traditional to the exotic. Among the ever changing, diverse flavors there are the traditional Strawberry and Butter Pecan as well as the more unusual “Killer Chocolate,” Cappuccino Kahlua, Salted Colossal Pistachio, Minced Ginger, and Bananas and Cookies for the kids. LICK will also offer an exceptional range of imaginative sundaes, from classic hot fudge to caramelized banana, crowned by LICK’s extensive selection of roasted nuts and local, hand whipped cream. Boysenberry, grapefruit and lemon sorbets, raspberry yogurt, custom ice-cream sandwiches with home baked cookies, milk shakes and 100% fruit smoothies are part of the evolving menu.

LICK will be open seven days a week, from noon to 10 p.m.
