The Beekman Boys, aka Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, are returning to Austin for a South by Southwest panel with Lick Ice Creams owners Anthony Sobotik and Chad Palmatier, and they want to have ice cream with you.
At a panel at 5 p.m. Saturday called “Couples Who Eat, Sleep and Build Businesses Together,” the couples will talk about the ups and downs of running a company together. It’s one of the sessions in SXSW’s first LGBTQIA+ social impact track, but the real fun begins when they partner up for an ice cream party on Sunday afternoon at Toms Coffee, 1401 S. Congress Avenue. No badge required for entry.
From 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, the reality TV stars, who have written several cookbooks in the past few years, including “A Seat at the Table,” which came out in September, will be serving ice cream, signing books and hanging out with Sobotik and Palmatier.
Lick’s ice cream truck will be at SouthBites Trailer Park, but you’ll be able to buy ice cream at this event. Proceeds will benefit the Austin Food and Wine Alliance.
