Gelato Flavors Matter

Posted on August 16, 2016

Crying babyWe’re going to take a break from our usual nonsense and bring you something that is truly upsetting which may lead to the downfall of the Republic, or at least the Gold Coast, gelato.

“Gold Coast residents who frequent Mariano Park, a picturesque little plaza at State and Rush streets, clamored for weeks for new park tenant Bow Truss Coffee to bring in the gelato that was promised them.

In mid-July, they got their wish with the addition of Black Dog Gelato, known for its unusual flavors and supplier to some of the city’s best restaurants.”

Yummy! However, some residents of the Gold Coast aren’t having it…

“The park “needs to be updated end of story. We don’t deserve what is being offered right now as dessert,” said Judi Steinreich, who appears to be one of those leading the charge leveled at Bow Truss owner Phil Tadros.

“Coffee is one thing and it’s good coffee. The dessert and supplemental items need to be updated and added to. We understand the Gelato there now is not [Tadros’] business and can be modified which it needs to be as soon as possible. Sanitation is improper, service improper and temperatures improper,” Steinreich said.

Their latest salvo: collecting signatures to try and boot Black Dog and bring in a different gelato vendor — specifically Amorino, a few blocks away at 838 N. State St. Some residents met privately on Friday to discuss the issue.”

There is no issue. If you don’t like it, don’t eat it. Better yet, BURN IT DOWN!! BURN THE MOTHERF*CKER DOWN!!! Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Goat Cheese Cashew Caramel Has Gotta Go!
