Scoop: Molly Moon Ice Cream Coming To OddFellows Hall

Just the other day I was bemoaning the fact that there wasn’t an ice cream shop close to home on Capitol Hill. Well, low and behold, the Pike-Pine Corridor is going to be getting a Molly Moon Ice Cream in OddFellows Hall a few months from now!

This will be their their second location (first is in Wallingford).

Thanks to Ted for the “scoop”. Rumor has it a Gun Club announcement will be coming soon.

    Awesome! After coming back from a trip to Italy this year, I was really dismayed by the lack of ice cream shops around here. Tully’s is about as close as it gets to being a local ice cream presence on the Hill. (Half Pint is good, too, but one Sunday a week on Broadway is not enough!)

    Sorry, fast post at work in between meetings.

    Truth be told I was worried that by mentioning your name I’d attract a lynch mob of displaced artists upset with the yuppification of their old neighborhood :).

    I think Ted was commenting on the poor pun, and honestly didn’t know which Ted you were talking about until you kind of accidentally called him out (and besides, I thought he was not the owner of this particular bldg, thought it was garage dude). All that aside, honestly care less about ice cream, although very glad its local and will patronize it, and more interested in what the general retail mix ideas will be there. Honestly, I think the Hill needs a decent hot shoestore, catering to chix and dudes, more than ice cream ( maybe because I lived two doors down from a gelateria in Italy)
    However, Ice cream and running thus far (it’s actually a good mix!). Its a dynamic building in an excellent location with all the transportation changes coming up and the rest of Broadway in front poised to flip around (Taco del Mar will be “vaya con dios” soon). just wondering what the plan is and hoping the price points and profit margins mean the owners don’t have to bisect and trisect the heck out of the first floor window fronts.

    The Ted in question does own this building.

    Personally, I’d like to see a small ski shop since waxing and tuning skis in your condo is a very messy affair. I’d also like to see a small hockey shop so I could get my skates sharpened without having to drive forty five minutes. I’m also bored of the current food options so more restaurants would certainly be welcome.

    As for hot jeans and $200 t-shirts. We had an Ian but they left us for Fremont.

    EconE I’m sorry you think hot shoes equals expensive and $300. “Hot” is simply an adjective, doesn’t mean I’m Paris Hilton.
    Shoes and clothing are generally looked at as staple items that don’t dip as much when the economy goes south, ’cause they are typically not seen as luxury items. They do dip however, not saying they don’t.
    and sorry let me clarify, hot shoestore does not necessarily mean $300 dollar shoes, but it doesn’t mean a payless either ( we already had one). Hot shoes means hopefully a store with a range of prices and preferably well made and good styles. To me, redwing boots are hot. so moving beyond the snark :) And shoestores can be clustered, not unlike cafes; works real well in portland, BC, and san fran. depends on the place.

    Maybe my general point is, I wish folks living in condos or rentals, gave more of a toot about the retail mix of buildings near them or under them in the early stages and let folks know their thoughts. Some owners/tenants are as keyed into the local demand and what could potentially work in their space unless someone tells, be it a market study, folks on the street, or other method. I mean, Who doesn’t want to be able to shop for things in their own neighborhood?
    And, Matt, reading your post, I remembered you are Canadian, but I couldn’t tell if you were serious or no?

    I am Canadian, and I do really want a local ski and hockey shop. I realize I may not be representative of all Pike-Pine residents :).

    Stone…I was just kidding. I’m a tongue-in-cheek kind of person. Sorry…No offense intended. It reminded me of my old shoe post on the 2200life blog. (which is also meant to be satirical)

    I’m hoping for a kiteboard shop but, unfortunately, Ted isn’t a kiter.

    Most new retail developments are too expensive for ‘interesting’ stores. Landlords prefer reliable, bland, national tenants who can sign long term leases at top dollar. Hence the proliferation of cell phone stores and fast food chains.

    In theory- Cool concept but molly moon’s attitude gives it a more ketchup + cool whip sort of vibe. Just kind of fake. Bummer, but I kind of think Dairy Queen has more soul..

    Watch your weight…ice cream is good at this! Anyhow, if you can't live without it, just compensate the weight addition with sports – Indulge yourself with other side board sports. :)
