The best ice cream doesn't come from a 100+ location chain.

One chain not listed that's pretty popular here is Bruster's.
Have you tried the gelato at Your Pie yet? (and the pizza?)

One of the owners of Whit's went to my high school, long before I did.

We have one in our neighborhood. I walked past it last night, thought about stopping for the German chocolate cake flavor, but willpowered through it.
