Big Gay Ice Cream Truck Returns!

Grape Nuts Topped Ice Cream from Big Gay Ice Cream

Regular Softee season is already well underway, but tomorrow marks the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck's inaugural run of the 2011 season. Salty pimps, oh how I've missed thee! Best of all Doug and Bryan are back with some VERY BIG news...

Serious Eats NY has the full scoop (*sorry, I couldn't resist), but the long and short of it is, BGICT is coming out with a book with Abrams in 2012! And Doug promises: "our book isn't just recipes. I'll also share things like my preferred way to shoo heroin dealers away from your ice cream truck." Ice cream and life lessons. What more could you want?

The truck should be in place at Broadway and 17th tomorrow afternoon (check their twitter feed @biggayicecream for timing. I can't wait for my first Bea Arthur of the season. That sounds really wrong, and yet...
