Wednesday, November 8th @ Buzzed Bull Creamery in Cincinnati with Eli’s BBQ dinner.

Buzzed Bull will give us a presentation on their nitro frozen treats while we eat.

Creating made-to-order alcoholic and non-alcoholic frozen desserts, Buzzed Bull Creamery believes life’s best moments are shared around dining and drinks. We invite adults to enjoy their favorite cocktail transformed into a frozen dessert (starting at ABV 5%) while kids are captivated by the mad scientist experiment to create their custom treat.
