Scooper Bowl by Matt McGann '00

All you can eat ice cream.

Apparently, Boston has the highest per-capita consumption of ice cream. I’m not surprised. As you may have learned from an old entry by Bryan, Boston has some of the world’s best ice cream makers and shops (for example, the New York Times called Toscanini’s “the best ice cream in the world”), most within walking distance of MIT.

Today is the second day of an amazing three day event here called the Scooper Bowl. It is billed as “nation’s largest all-you-can-eat ice cream festival.” For $7 (kids: $3), you can consume Boston’s favorite treat to your heart’s (stomach’s?) content.
