Big Gay Ice Cream TruckBig Gay Ice Cream Truck: Vanilla Cones drizzled with dulce de leche and coated with Vanilla WafersThe tweet hit my phone at 2:01this afternoon: The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck (@biggayicecream) parked at 36th and 7th.

That’s only 3 1/2 blocks from the office.

Two words: field trip!

Carolyn and I went out as soon as I finished the conference call I’d started at 2. Sadly, Dawn could not come becuase she was trapped in her own meetings.

I finally got to try a vanilla cone, drizzled with dulce de leche and coated with vanilla wafers. This was crazy good the cookies and the caramel flavor mix oh so good with the creamy ice cream. I originally saw this cone on The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck blog and knew it would be the thing I got next time I caught up with the truck. Luckily Doug had the right fixins to do this today.

I hope he makes more visits to the midtown area over the summer. I think Carolyn is hooked on it. I suspect more will get hooked the more the BGICT is in the area. Meanwhile, still have to get Will to the truck. Hopefully this weekend…
