Some days you're the bug, Some days you're the windshield!!

Great Idea!

This is a worthwhile project, and it's likely to be as large as the Hot Dog listing!

I'm in the process of submitting a separate 'more local' listing of ice cream shops in the Eastern part of Connecticut. That file should complement the larger file but offer a regional flavor!

Whenever we take the long trek from Maryland to Ontario, we stop at Finn's Family Restaurant for ice cream. A treat on the LONG drive. The restaurant is on Hwy 219 where it intersects with Hwy 321. I put the coordinates on my GPS, but cannot figure out how to find them again.

I believe these are the only 2 locations for Sylas & Maddy's, with the Lawrence location being the original. So hopefully this still qualifies as "Mom & Pop". Not sure how many stores you have to have before officially becoming a chain, but this definitely ain't Ben & Jerry's.

a Winnipeg one

The BDI, or Bridge Drive-In, has been in business over 40 years. On warm days the line seems endless. It has great ice cream and some very different sundaes.

The Elm Park Bridge is beside it. It used to be open for vehicular traffic at only 15 feet wide, but it now is a pedestrian bridge over the Red River. Wear off the ice cream by going for a walk on it.
