Memorial Day weekend: Summer has officially begun!  And with it, this blog.  This idea happened quite accidentally.  See, I love ice cream.  And I have a need to discover new things in New York on a continual basisAnd I'm a list-maker.  So I started keeping a list of all the great places for ice cream around New York City that I'd read about, or had been recommended, or I'd found one day while walking around.  I thought it'd be fun if I tried to visit all of them by summer's end.  Sometimes I'd share my ice cream-ing on Facebook.  And...........voila!  Turns out, there are a TON of people who like ice cream!!  People were loving my hunt for NYC ice-cream.  So, it's time it became official, ladies and gents.  There's a lot of ice cream to get to........and I'm ready to take on the challenge!

A word about New York City ice cream.  There will not be a Baskin Robbins or Mr. Softee in the bunch.  This isn't about me reviewing Ben & Jerry's new Greek Frozen Yogurt ice cream (delicious) or going on about how Haagen Dazs Five is the best ice cream allowed in the stores.  This isn't stuff you can get in Oklahoma, kids.  It's local and homemade.  Which is the best kind there is.  ENJOY!
