Save the date. Ice Cream for Breakfast Day is right around the corner, Saturday, Feb. 3.

First celebrated in the 1960s when a Rochester, NY family ate ice cream for breakfast during a blizzard, the informal holiday aims to “liven up the first weekend of February with something silly and sweet.”

Here in Greenville, you can celebrate with a scoop, sundae, or pint from one of these sweet spots:

Clare’s Creamery, Multiple locations

Opening at 9 a.m., bring the family for breakfast-inspired ice cream flavors, sundaes in Clare’s mugs, plus coffee from Bridge City Coffee so you still get your morning cup o’ joe.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, 12 E. Broad St., #6B, Greenville

Opening at 9 a.m., there will be breakfast flavors like Balanced Breakfast — a delicious mix of banana french toast, coffee with cream + sugar, and darkest chocolate in a french toast waffle bowl. Jeni’s encourages you to wear your pj’s.

Swamp Rabbit Cafe & Grocery, 205 Cedar Lane Rd.

Get soft-serve ice cream from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. ($1 off if you wear your jammies), sip on vanilla affogatos from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., and get $1 off pints of Jeni’s ice cream from the grocery.
