As you'd expect, Big Gay Ice Cream Shop opened with a splash on Saturday. The guest of honor at the opening ceremony was none other than "Father Anthony," namely, one Tony Bourdain, who emerged wearing ... drum roll ... a priest's vestments, and proceeded to bestow upon the shop his (profane) version of a blessing. "We are all God's creatures," intoned Bourdain. "Who among us has not yearned for the curious embrace of a Salty Pimp or seriously considered burying their face in a Bea Arthur? ... May you go forward and make a shitload of money ... Sell a lot of motherfuckin' ice cream!" Based on Big Gay's tweets this weekend, the benediction seems to have helped.
