It's hot out there, and as you celebrate your last long weekend of Summer 2013, you may be inclined to get some ice cream. Eater has rounded up 16 worthy ice cream candidates that opened across the country over the past year or so, and you have a wide array of options.
Like ice cream sandwiches? Head to the Baked Bear in San Diego to get custom built ones. Floats? How about Michael White's the Butterfly in New York City? Boozey ice cream? Fifty Licks in Portland. Gelato? The Art of Flavors in Las Vegas. Crazy flavors? Izzy's in Minneapolis is your best bet. Any possible combination of cupcakes and ice cream (cupcake sundaes, cupcake sandwiches, cupcake shakes, cupcake etc.)? Sprinkles Ice Cream in Dallas. And the list goes on.
Below, the Eater National Ice Cream Heatmap. Any obvious omissions, head to the comments. And have a happy Labor Day weekend.
