Treat Dreams to host horrifyingly delicious Friday the 13th celebration

Friday the 13th is known as a day of mayhem and mischief and Ferndale's ice cream provocateurs Treat Dreams are mixing up something terrifyingly tasty for the June edition of this horrifying anti-holiday.

Teaming up with NYA Catering, the ice cream creators will be serving up a special horror movie-themed "Murder Dinner" on June 13. The five-course meal will be designed by the catering company's executive chef Ruben Griffin.

The two-seating, one-night-only event will begin with The Exorcist split pea soup, then a Fatal Attraction rabbit roulade, followed by a Jaws Mako shark, then a Silence of the Lambs seared lamb loin, and ending

with Treat Dreams' The Shining redrum ice cream. However, noticeably missing is a course honoring the Jason Voorhees franchise.

While non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at Treat Dreams, guests are also invited to bring their own booze, if an alcoholic beverage is desired with dinner.

Tickets to the dinner are $65 and are available online at Seatings are at 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.


Treat Dreams is found at 22965 Woodward Avenue in Ferndale.
