{Thank you for being a friend}

I love the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. Yes it is over-hyped. Especially since it's essentially a glamorized Mr. Softee truck. Despite those minor hitches this big square truck was a beacon of delight during my first summer in NYC while attending art school around Union Square. More times than I'd like to admit, I relinquished the coolly air conditioned coffee shops packed with students, faced the 100 percent August humidity, and searched the surrounding blocks for the Big Gay Truck. In those early days the lines weren't quite as long as they are now, but chances are you could still work up a good sweat simply contemplating between a cool, creamy and slightly crunchy Bea Arthur or my other favorite: the sweet and savory Salty Pimp. While I've since moved back to California, the guys at BGICT have proceeded to open a brick and mortar shop in the East Village. Most times during the summer, they can still be found around Manhattan in the truck--only now surrounded by a noticeably large crowd. Standing on the street on a scorching summer day though is still my favorite way to enjoy this Golden Girl.
