So, in case you didn’t notice? It was pretty hot this weekend. We spent pretty much the entire weekend taking advantage of our air conditioned room and eating ice cream. Ah, ice cream. Truly, the summer food of the gods. As Bostonians, we are incredibly lucky to have a variety of excellent ice cream shops at our disposal. From Toscanini’s and JP Licks to Herrell’s and Lizzy’s, ice cream in the Hub is truly an embarrassment of riches. It’s not this way in other parts of the country! New York’s ice cream to-go options are mostly limited to big chains, gelato, and frozen yogurt. Don’t get us wrong. We adore gelato and fro-yo when the time is right. On hot summer days, however, when we’re out and about, nothing hits the spot like plain old fashioned ice cream. Why? Because everyone loves ice cream.
