So, there have been some rumors going around on Twitter that Philadelphia Water Ice has closed down. Apparently this is not the case. I think it started because Philadelphia Water Ice has the same owner as Spoiled and Rotten Kid's Boutique and Spa. Spoiled and Rotten is relocating to Baltimore.
The second factor is that Philadelphia Water Ice has some sort of partnership with Souk, under which Souk will manage the window and sell Souk food from there. In the spring, they will also sell a few flavors of water ice. It also sounds like you will still be able to get cheesesteaks from the window, as well as Souk food.
Here's the email that popped up a listserv today:
Philly Water Ice HAS NOT closed. we are partnering in with Souk owner which they are managing the place also. However the water ice will have a limited menu in the spring with only a few flavor of water ice, ice cream and still the only place in DC that WILL and STILL has the AUTHENTIC Cheesesteaks.
