Which means it’s time for ice cream!!!
This weekend it was warm enough to go for ice cream! So we did just that. We live in Alphabet City in Manhattan which borders the East Village and the Lower East Side. There are quite a few fancy ice cream parlors nearby: Big Gay Ice Cream, Odd Fellows, Mikey Likes It, Il Laboratorio Del Gelato, and Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream. This Spring/Summer I plan to give them all a taste test! On Sunday we strolled over to Morgenstern’s which is at 2 Rivington St. It felt so energizing to soak up some real vitamin D! My husband lived in Southern California for years so he used to take it for granted but after the long cold winter we had this year, he’s really appreciating how energizing warm sunshine hitting your face can feel.
I love the vibe of Morgenstern’s Ice Cream shop it has an updated retro feel and friendly staff. It’s all about the fun flavors! As a couple we weren’t very adventurous because we both got the same flavor: Salted Caramel Pretzel, clearly neither one of us was interested in sharing! Bradley got his in a cone and I went all out sundae style in a cup adding fudge sauce and whipping cream.
I have a strong feeling we will be back to try out more flavors!
