Sweet Cooie’s Turns Five this Valentine’s Day

-Celebrates 5 Years of love in the Congress Park Community with Birthday Bingo, Truffle Pop-Up, & A Valentine’s Day Love Letter Contest-

(DENVER, February  7, 2022) The Little Man Ice Cream Company is celebrating the month of love with their second sister shop, Sweet Cooie’s, which turns five on Valentine’s Day. The Congress Park neighborhood ice cream parlor is an elegant Tiffany jewel box and homage to the owner, Paul Tamburello’s mother Elaine, who was also known as “Sweet Cooie.” Throughout the past five years, the shop located at 3506 E. 12th Avenue, has become a gathering spot for locals who have come to enjoy the sweetest ice cream and a wide variety of events from live music to bingo to children’s hula dances, late-night-date-nights, pet adoptions, holiday celebrations and fundraisers for local schools and women’s organizations. They have donated tens of thousands of dollars to the community, as part of the brand’s Scoop-for-Scoop mission. (For every scoop sold, a portion of proceeds support women’s initiatives from homeless shelters to safe houses and beyond.)

In honor of this milestone birthday that coincides with the month of love, Sweet Cooie’s will be celebrating with special events, birthday cake, and an opportunity to win a $100 birthday gift basket on Valentine’s Day. A fundraiser for The Gathering Place will share the love with women and children experiencing homelessness, as well, throughout February. Pop by to celebrate. We’re sweet on you!
