Food truck turned brick-and-mortar store: Big Gay Ice Cream Shop

Though we love its sweet treats, our only grip with the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck is that in order to enjoy its clever concoctions like the Bea Arthur (vanilla ice cream, dulce de leche and crushed Nilla wafers), you have to be willing to wait upwards of 40 minutes to get it... and the truck only operates through the fall. Luckily, the new brick-and-mortar shop in the East Village has answered our prayers so we can get our fix way past ice cream season.
