per a sign out front, Torico's is donating all proceeds of tomorrow's 1-scoop cone sales to Philippine Typhoon relief.

Toricos fans who cruise up, park illegally, leave their car running, windows down, with bass-thumping music blaring at 10:55pm on a weeknight while they saunter inside for a (badass, yo) ice cream cone, should not be surprised to find something special waiting for them in the driver's seat.

this has been a Public Service Announcement from the Neighbors of Toricos.

enjoy your cone.

Hey ice cream lovers I know a place that would love the overflow traffic. Why wait in line behind a “yuppie”?

Have you DQ’d today? You must have DQ’d at least once in your life. Why not again?

Take a trip over to the wild side of JC for a refreshing treat. Plenty of parking in their big lot. The lot that sales Xmas trees in the winter

Dairy Queen
513 Westside Ave

http://www.dairyqueen.com/us-en/store-details/5043/

While strolling down Westside with your cone check out these places of business.

** **
For the latest sneaks and North Face gear…

HEIRS MENS SHOP
525 WESTSIDE AVE

http://heirsmensshop.com

** **
For some hip sh*t ….

SUVAS (store should be in DTJC…word!)
510 WESTSIDE AVE

http://teamsuvas.com

** **
Hungry after the cone?

Step on over to this 440 original …

KELLOGG GARDEN
520 WESTSIDE AVE

(NOT to be confused with the “new” KELLOGG GARDEN that stole the “old” KELLOGG GARDEN name and just opened up in one of the store fronts next to K-Mart.) (tip: don’t ask the “old” KELLOGG GARDEN people if they have anything to do with the “new” KELLOGG GARDEN. You will get yelled at in a foreign tongue or worse yet… whipped with a wet noodle.)

** **

To wash things down hit the Dunkin Donuts on the corner of Union and Westside. (you may need that extra jolt of java in case you have to run after the dudes who just ripped off your GPS, tires, rims, etc) (just kidding)

** **

Enjoy JC! We don’t bite!

My wife and I visited Sunday also. Line was fairly short and we didn't have to wait too long. Was worth it - Glad they're open again.

We went yesterday (sunday) around 6pm and the line was just outside the door, but moved very quickly (maybe 5 mins?)

It was our first time, and found it to be quite enjoyable. What I don't understand, however, is what the hell took so long for them to reopen? It was a pretty basic brick box with freezers, not a whole lot in terms of interior design.

Either way, 20 mins in line for ice cream seems a little crazy. I don't think I'd wait in line that long for a free cone and $5 cash back.
Tommy Two Scoops just got another customer or maybe I'll visit Torico's on a rainy day.
I didn't see lines yesterday. It's just the opening rush, the place has been closed for 18 months, Tasti De-Lite disappeared, people were eager for ice cream and to see the new space. Don't understand why people like you think everything has to do with damn yuppie scum.


I wouldn't wait behind welfare recipients for 20 minutes for ice cream either.
I have no problem with "yuppie scum" per se (at least in this instance) it just so happens that is who/what was in line. Same reason why I seldom go to wonder bagles anymore.

Went last night - Waited at least 30 minutes - both lines were very long. Didn't mind the wait since it was a nice night and a Sunday but probably wouldn't wait like that again.

I am sure it is people who have been waiting for Toricos to re-open after all of this time.

it's been mentioned upthread, but bears repeating: Two Scoops's Tommy has a close relative in the JC buildings dept. Toricos's opening was delayed for months by the JC buildings dept. But I'm sure there's no connection. Carry on.

Went by last night at around 9. Line out the door.

These guys can earn a living being open 3 months out of the year.

The place is packed every time I walk by. There selection of flavors looks great. Have to stop by with my gf one night.

Went in on Sunday about 11:30 am. No line whatsoever and the Coffe & Cookies ice cream was as good as ever. I like the old hand-crank machine on display but I have to say it looks like it's from the 1860's not the 1960's. Can that really be what they used when they first started or is it just for show?

Not bad.

So psyched to have them back. But, as their close neighbor, I must ask a favor of my fellow JClisters:

When you sit on one of the nearby stoops to enjoy your ice cream, please take your trash with you when you leave.

Torico's return means another summer of digging cups/spoons/napkins out of my plants, and that somewhat dampens the joy.

Thanks in advance!

Just got back from Torico's...the new shop looks great and they are giving away free single scoop cones all day today. Don't worry about the line, they are moving people through there very quickly.

Happy Friday!

I don't know about any of you, but I'm not going to Torico's unless they let me carry out my ice cream in a plastic bag.

Thank all that is merciful and good in the universe (not to mention the JC planning dept), there's just one week left until Torico's is back. Woohoo! (Relatedly, does anyone know when the next bootcamp starts?)
