Last Saturday was sweltering. It was even hotter if you were waiting on line to view Kara Walker’s “A Subtlety, or the Marvelous Sugar Baby,” at the soon to be demolished Domino Sugar Factory. As we left the domain of the massive sugar sphinx-mammy I tasted a few grains of what I presumed to be some ancient turbinado sugar that was laying on a girder. Back outside in the heat I pondered whether that was a good idea, and my crew and I decided to chill out with something sweet and cool at the nearby OddFellows Ice Cream Co.I’ve been Tweeting at OddFellows about the weather since the rainy damp spring so I was quite glad to find myself in Williamsburg with summer in full swing. I had my heart set on the gourmet scoop shop’s degustation of foie gras ice cream and blueberry soda, but they were out of it. So I decided to have two scoops instead: cornbread with a lashing of salted caramel syrup and burnt sugar. Both were excellent, a perfect ending to a sweet day with friends.
