Churn 2 (a New Ice Cream Spot) is Coming to Cambridge's Harvard Square

It looks like a new ice cream spot is coming to the Harvard Square section of Cambridge, though the place seems to be difficult to classify.

A recent PDF file within the City of Cambridge website includes a conversation with Crista Milley, who will be the manager of Churn 2, a proposed ice cream business located on private property on Oxford Street. Some of the discussion recorded within the file includes confusion as to what exactly Churn 2is, with the place being possibly considered an ice cream truck without wheels, a cart, a stand, and a "transient vendor,"and an article from Eater Boston that appears to be talking about the same business is calling it a pop-up ice cream shop, based on a Craigslist job post. Classification of the business aside, Churn 2would be open seven days a week, and plans to be up and running sometime in late August.

[September 13 update: Eater Boston states that Churn 2 could be opening as early as this weekend (as soon as we get confirmation, we will post another update here).]

[September 15 update: A Facebook post from the place indicates that Churn 2 is now open for business.]

The address for this new ice cream place is: Churn 2, 1 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA, 02138.
