Here’s your weekly rundown of Eastside dining and shopping news.

In honor of Women’s History Month, LAist compiled a rundown of “Women Who Are Changing the Way LA Drinks.” Turns out quite a few ladies from the Eastside made the mark. Patricia Perez, Roselma Samala and Christine Sumiller of Historic Fillipinotown’s Genever bar all received nods for their philanthropic efforts and for crafting killer cocktails. Ting Su of Eagle Rock Brewery, Eagle Rock Public House and founder of Women’s Beer Forum was named “as one of LA’s modern beer pioneers.” Roni Ginach of Kismet in Los Feliz and Cliff’s Edge in Silver Lake made her mark for her natural wine selections. Rounding up the list is Coly Den Haan, who has curated a female driven wine selection at her wine store Vinovore in Silver Lake.

Supercool Creamery has found a permanent home adjacent to the Vista Movie Theatre, the company announced. The nitro-artisan ice cream show founded by Ben Fernebok has been a company and celebrity favorite for the past seven years. With the arrival of Supercool Creamery’s brick and mortar, fans and newbies get a first-hand show behind the fast freezing process of flavors such as cookies and cream, mint chip, green tea, mango sorbet and peanut butter pretzel. Supercool Creamery is at 4469 Sunset Dr. in Los Feliz.
