TUES 6/9 to THUR 6/11: Scooper Bowl

More to come, but this deserves its own spot.


Noon to 8pm
Scooper Bowl
at City Hall Plaza, Boston (Govt Center)
$8 / $4 for children ages 3 to 9

All-you-can-eat ice cream, 'nuff said!

Nine cold, sweet, creamy companies usually have about 4 flavors of ice cream, frozen yogurt, and/or sorbet at any given time. For $8, consider this a meal replacement. If you do it right, you won't want to eat again for a day.

If you've never been, young and old people act as if they haven't eaten in days and probably spend hours proudly piling up cups in their sticky hands.

I've seen people seemingly satisfied at 7 or 8 scoops, but I suggest trying as many flavors as possible to find your favorites -- then going back to gorge on multiple cups of the ones you like...

If there ever was a good reason for unabated, decadent gluttony; it's cancer research!
