Clumpies in Chattanooga was named one of the nation's 31 best ice cream shops by Thrillist Food.
Thrillist said that Clumpies "still works in small batches, keeping things simple -- mostly -- with rich and creamy flavors, like chocolate chocolate chunk and butter pecan."
Also, Thrillist said, Clumpies has the "not-so-simple with tongue-tingling, Pop Rock-infused Tutti Frutti ice cream."
On Friday, Clumpies will open its new Southside location at 1401 Market St. with an event from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Live music begins at 4 p.m. with performances from local artists Tryezz, The Party Truck, Superbody and others. The new shop doors open at 4:30 p.m., and everyone who attends the event receives a free ice cream cone or cup, with limited edition gifts for the first 50 guests in line, according to Clumpies.
