Vendy Winner Wooly’s Ice Open At The Seaport
Last year shaved ice purveyor Wooly’s Ice went home a winner for best dessert at the Vendy Awards. The cart was in ML Downtown territory last year – first starting next to the 1 Centre St. kiosks and later moving up to Elizabeth St. This year they’re on the move again and starting today will be parked for the summer season at the South St. Seaport, right at Pier 17. Danny Che from Wooly’s gave us the low down on some changes to the cart’s ices and some other information. They were expecting to be up and running by the beginning of May but as often happens there were some unexpected setbacks which is probably fine because it hasn’t exactly been warm enough to crave icy treats. Straight ahead for what you can expect to help you deal with the heat this summer.
Tentative hours for the cart are noon to 9 p.m., seven days a week. The whole menu has been revamped, Che said, with set options instead of letting people pick their own toppings and they came up with the combos based on what was most popular last year. They’ll also have mango shaved ice through the month of May. A small costs $5 while a large is $7 and if memory serves correctly, you’re getting your money’s worth with the sheer number of toppings.
Che said that they try to update the Twitter and Facebook pages (found below) frequently so check in before heading over to the Seaport if you have your heart set on shaved ice.
