Panda-inspired ice cream, then ‘Pints for Pandas’ tonight

Lots of delicious news about pandas for today, as Zoo Atlanta continues its Give So They Stay campaign to raise $500,000. They’ll use the money to help extend the lease on pandas loaned from China.

First, panda ice cream:

Jake’s Ice Cream has just introduced the flavor Pandamonium, with 50 cents from every scoop sold benefiting Zoo Atlanta’s Give So They Stay campaign.

Pandamonium is a fusion of Sencha green tea, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg with a sweet cream base.

Jake’s, scooping its latest creation at its Old Fourth Ward and Emory area locations, hopes to raise $10,000 toward the panda campaign, which has received donations of $66,000 since its mid-June launch.

Not so much into ice cream? How about beer?

From Peach Buzz:

Sidle up to the bar at SweetWater Brewing Company Friday night for the Atlanta brewery’s “Pints for Pandas” tasting event. The evening featuring bottomless pint glasses will benefit Zoo Atlanta’s ongoing fund-raising to keep giant pandas Lun Lun and Yang Yang and their toddling son Xi Lan in Atlanta.

Want to go? Pints for Pandas, 9 p.m.-midnight Friday, $25, SweetWater Brewing Company, 195 Ottley Drive, Atlanta. www.pintsforpandas.blogspot.com.
