2008_10_scoops.jpg E. HOLLYWOOD: Mad scientist Tai Kim is whipping up a bunch of special gelato concoctions for a fundraising event held at Scoops this Saturday. Goal is to guess exactly what he put in there, and if you know Kim, it really can be anything. $5 to taste three; $10 for 10. Vegan options included. If you guess the flavors correctly, you'll win a price---but we don't know what that is. Proceeds got to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. (Dec. 6, 2pm-8pm). [Caroline on Crack]
