Little Man Ice Cream, 2620 16th Street in LoHi, is celebrating May with new hours and a variety of events throughout the spring and summer.
"We really view Little Man as a gathering place for the community," says Little Man manager Loren Martinez. "It's a place to not only grab some great ice cream, but to connect with neighbors and friends and build fun memories."
Little Man, which is now open until midnight daily, will regularly feature live music on Sundays and Thursdays, magic performances on Mondays and vintage movie screenings every Saturday night until August.
The ice cream joint built into a giant milk can will also host special events such as Hula Hoop contests, poetry slams, accordion performances, pancake breakfasts, a banana- split eating contest and an adult-only YouTube night that encourages patrons to take part in funny videos.
Check Little Man's Facebook page for updates -- and get a free scoop of ice cream tonight between 11 p.m. and midnight by proving that you "like" the shop; bring in your smart phone or print a screen shot of that social-media page to get in on the deal. But remember to factor the time it takes to find parking in LoHi.
