The next Ice Age might be coming sooner than you think. On Wednesday Sept. 5, the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits will partner up with the CoolHaus truck to hand out free saber-toothed ice cream sandwiches between 12:30-1:30 at the corner of Wilshire and Curson Blvd.

What's the reason for celebration? The life-sized, ferocious-looking saber-tooth tiger puppet that has been performing at the Natural History Museum is transferring to the Page Museum for full-time shows (the Tar Pits also happen to hold the remains many real-life prehistoric cats too, FYI).

If you're wondering exactly what a saber-tooth sandwich tastes like -- according to the folks at CoolHaus at least -- it's the decadent combo of a red velvet cookie and sea salt caramel ice cream. The event is free and open to the public, so don't expect this deal to last long in the middle-day heat.

Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
