Scream Sorbet Shut Down Due to Permitting Issue

Well, that was fast.

Despite plans to stay open until at least March 10, cash-strapped Scream Sorbet (5030 Telegraph Ave.) closed this afternoon, shut down by the Alameda County Health Department.

Via email, reader Sheila Addison (who’d planned to stock up on pints while she still had the chance) informed What the Fork that a health department employee had locked the door — taping up a big red “closed” sign — right as she walked up to the Telegraph Ave. store at around 3:45 p.m. today.
