Save the date. Ice Cream for Breakfast Day is right around the corner, Saturday, Feb. 4.

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, 1635 E. North St., Greenville

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.
