Seriously, it starts in about March and runs until November. The ice cream truck also runs late. The jingle can be heard through the South End at 10:30 at night sometimes. It makes you think of the 90's movie Friday.
Now just to be clear we have never bought so much as an ice cream from the truck. Nor have we seen anything that we would call even remotely suspicious going on around the ice cream truck. What we can say is that we have been outside in the South End on a chilly march evening sipping a beer and heard the ice cream truck jingle and though "who the hell is buying an ice cream right now?"
