The mobile unit is called Billie Gold Bubble Tea and it is being launched by Nicole Cornett, co-owner of Cloak & Dagger Tattoo Studio in Dayton and of a Salon Lofts salon in the Town & Country shopping center in Kettering, and her husband, Britton Asbury, co-owner of the tattoo studio.

The debut will happen at 7 p.m. today at a Levitt Pavilion concert featuring the The Dayton Funk All-Stars. The concert is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. at Fifth and Main streets.

Billie Gold Bubble Tea will offer a variety of bubble-tea beverages, including a signature drink called the Rose Gold, described in a release as “a sweet and refreshing coconut milk tea” with rose, tapioca balls and cold-brew coffee from Press coffee shop in Dayton.

Treats from Cakes By Cookie will be available for purchase,  including a pastry that is similar to a vegan Twinkies. Most Billie Gold items are vegan and gluten-free friendly, its founders said in a release.

From noon to 10 p.m., Cloak & Dagger tattoo artists will offer flash art tattoos for $50, with a portion of the proceeds going to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Tattoo recipients also will receive a voucher for a Billie Gold Bubble Tea beverage. A portion of all Billie Gold sales that evening will also go to the foundation.
