Support your source for local news!
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

First the teasers of out-of-state deep-fried Samoas, and now this? Uber brings news of a new app they launched in honor of National Ice Cream Month that allows people in Boston, Chicago, D.C., San Francisco, Toronto, and NYC to beckon an ice cream truck at their whim. With all the fabulous frozen treats in this car-obsessed city, we seem like the perfect market. I guess for now we'll just have to follow around our mobile machines -- like Peddler's Creamery and Cool Haus, and Lake Street Creamery, (now closed) -- via Twitter.
