The store also offers slow-poured coffee, a full espresso bar, and a variety of fancy desserts, such as Salted Caramel Sundaes and Cookie Panini gelato sandwiches.

“We are very happy to have moved to the big city and to be part of the dessert renaissance in the Old Port,” co-founder Joshua Davis, 29, said. “It is our hope that The Gelato Fiasco Portland will be a place for the community to gather in a comfortable, cozy setting and explore the artistry of our gelato and espresso drinks.”

The store is the young company’s second company-owned location.

Better Than an Advent Calendar: Elf on the Shelf

Better Than an Advent Calendar: Elf on the Shelf

We were visited by a pixie elf the day after Thanksgiving this year. It’s the third year in a row he’s showed up. His name is Elfie.

My oldest son, G, named the elf. He was sent to us by Santa Claus himself. He comes every year the day after Thanksgiving. He’s even made appearances in New York City and Massachusetts when we were traveling for the holidays.

If you haven’t figured it out. I’m talking about Elf on the Shelf.

The rules are simple.
