2009_07_sketch.jpgBerkeley: Yesterday marked the swan song for Sketch, as the East Bay neighborhood favorite officially pulled the plug on its only retail shop. However, as mentioned earlier, the husband-and-wife team isn't abandoning the organic ice cream business completely: they'll maintain the online store as they welcome their first child. Until then, feel free to add to the chorus of teary-eyed remembrances on either Chowhound, Yelp or the Sketch blog. In any event, Ici—Sketch "rival" and fellow Berkeley fancy ice cream purveyor—should be quite pleased with this turn of events.
