SXSW 2018: Lick Honest Ice Creams, Beekman Boys team up for ice cream party

The Beekman Boys, aka Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell, are returning to Austin for a South by Southwest panel with Lick Ice Creams owners Anthony Sobotik and Chad Palmatier, and they want to have ice cream with you.

Brent Ridge, left, and Josh Kilmer-Purcell are known as “the Beekman Boys,” which is a nod to the 19th century farm they run in upstate New York. They were the stars of a Cooking Channel reality show about their lives. Contributed by Beekman1802

At a panel at 5 p.m. Saturday called “Couples Who Eat, Sleep and Build Businesses Together,” the couples will talk about the ups and downs of running a company together. It’s one of the sessions in SXSW’s first LGBTQIA+ social impact track, but the real fun begins when they partner up for an ice cream party on Sunday afternoon at Toms Coffee, 1401 S. Congress Avenue. No badge required for entry.

From 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, the reality TV stars, who have written several cookbooks in the past few years, including “A Seat at the Table,” which came out in September, will be serving ice cream, signing books and hanging out with Sobotik and Palmatier.

Lick’s ice cream truck will be at SouthBites Trailer Park, but you’ll be able to buy ice cream at this event. Proceeds will benefit the Austin Food and Wine Alliance.
