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.
