F.R.I.E.N.D.S. with J.P. Licks Artist Jaamal Eversley


"REAL" in dark pink written diagnolly over random blue letters like a word search with the word "Friends" at the bottom circled in dark pink. All on blue background.

Wondering what our artist are up to when they aren't eating ice cream under their art? Then head over to Beacon Gallery at 524B Harrison Ave in Boston to see "Real F.R.I.E.N.D.S.," a show conceived and currated by our current Boylston Street artist Jaamal Eversley. With its unique concept of collaboration and friendship, Real F.R.I.E.N.D.S offers a counterpoint to current events with fun, colorful pieces focused on themes of friendship and love. The intention of this exhibit is twofold: first, to invite the community to experience interdisciplinary collaborations constructed around Eversley’s artistic avatar Spencer Ward, a bold nerd. Second, Real F.R.I.E.N.D.S intends to reinforce the belief that a successful collaborative process strengthens communal bonds and generates dynamic creativity. (Plus, artist Fernando Fula, who showed in our South Boston store is one of the featured artists!

Help Us #ScoopItForward

Hi Friends,
Help us #ScoopItForward.
Thank you for supporting J.P. Licks for the past 39 years, and especially for the past two months. I founded J.P. Licks in 1981. I believe ice cream brings people together and gives them joy. I made a tough decision to do everything possible to keep the doors open and some employees working during this crisis so you, our customers, could continue to have a place to find a scoop of normalcy. I hope that by doing this J.P.Licks is able to create some happy memories during a very arduous period.
Over the years, J.P.Licks has supported our communities and we are hoping that now, when we find ourselves unable to do so, you will help us to #ScoopItForward. Each donation made to this fund will allow us to bring ice cream and coffee to front line workers and volunteers still pulling long days away from their own loved ones. We hope every scoop of ice cream brings a respite to their day and a grin to their faces.
Once we reach our first $100.00, we will begin bringing ice cream and coffee to firefighters, nursing home workers, shelter and pantry volunteers, police officers, doctors and nurses who are working to keep us safe. (Whew! that’s a lot of groups to show appreciation to!)
We will continue donating until we run out of funds.
Please click this link and thank you so much for your support.

A Letter to our Customers

We are so grateful to everyone who has come into J.P. Licks to support us and our staff during the past few weeks of uncertainty. We believe ice cream makes a perfect way to bring smiles and a little magic to any situation. At this time, all 17 of our stores are open regular hours and will continue to serve you delicious ice cream, baked goods, cakes, and coffee.

We have been staying on top of new CDC protocols as they develop, and we will continue to evaluate and make changes that we feel will better protect you and our staff.

Some extra precautions we have begun taking include: changing our procedures for serving flavor samples to limit hand-to-hand contact, adding additional steps and sanitizing products to our rigorous sanitizing procedures for all surfaces, and encouraging customers to use please use credit cards instead of cash whenever possible to limit the spread of germs.

Please remember if you have been quarantined or just do not feel comfortable going out, all of our stores deliver through a 3rd party delivery company to most neighborhoods (check out our website to see which ones deliver to you!)

Again, thank you so much for continuing to support J.P.Licks and the other small businesses in your neighborhood during these unprecedented times.

February Sock Drive

Five socks hanging off a clothesline with wooden clips Socks are red yellow green with blue polka dots pink and blue and yellow stripes Clementine the cow is on two of the socks
All February long, bring new socks into any J.P.Licks and receive a coupon for your next visit! At the end of the month, we'll bring all the socks to our partner, Rosie's Place, a women's shelter in Boston whose mission is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity, and find security in their lives. Socks must be new to be donated which means there is almost always a shortage of socks in shelters. We're working this February to change this!
