The Museum of Ice Cream arrived in New York this week but will only stay until the end of August. Ice Cream vs. summertime is a battle between getting your licks in before the ice cream melts. It is therefore only appropriate that the museum is only here for a short time.
I did not, however, nor will you get to experience it. Why, because all 30,000 tickets sold out in five days.
Still, I feel compelled to write about it because, I like you, have loved ice cream since I was a very little guy. I can still remember my father going into the drugstore ice cream counter to get us cones. He got vanilla, my Mom got strawberry and I got chocolate. Its an indelible memory.
Ice cream is about family and fun as much as it is about taste. A New York Times description, "The Museum of Ice Cream Is Sold Out. Here’s What You’re Missing," makes it sound like the museum is more about play than eating.
