The COOLHAUS Ice Cream Sandwich is a Must Try This Summer!

We recently stumbled upon the most delicious treat that we just had to share with you guys!  Think old school ice cream trucks reinvented and made cool again! At Coolhaus you build your own sandwich by choosing from different cookie bases and unique ice cream flavors.  Our favorite is the choc chip cookie with brown butter candied bacon!!

We highly recommend joining in on the fun this hot summer and check out these fabulous ice cream sandwiches!

You can follow the truck on Twitter to find it’s location.   If you don’t feel like waiting, head to your local Whole Foods or even their Culver City Store front!

Now these definitely get the Grapevine stamp of approval!

Check out the Film Craigslist Joe!

When we met Joe 7 years ago, he was looking to get a job in the entertainment industry. Like many of you, he wanted to make films. He worked hard and followed his passion and we are so proud that he reached his dream and made this wonderful film. Below are the details, please go see it and spread the word. Very inspiring indeed!

Joe recently directed a documentary film, Craigslist Joe — where he spent one month living off of Craigslist with no money or contact with anyone he knew. He traveled the country all through the goodwill and kindness of strangers. Zach Galifianakis is the Executive Producer and we are excited for the release!
