Ice cream cones
Our editors are still recovering from GelatoGate 2011, the week-long orgy of ice-cream eating that preceeded our June issue (on newsstands today). Our award-winning and downright awesome food editor Ali Scheff made the picks, our fantastically talented art director Sue Boylan called in the props, and then it was ice cream everywhere for two weeks here at SeaMag.

Organizers at One Reel say the party starts at noon at Gas Works Park (2101 N. Northlake Way) on Monday, July 4 and features games and entertainment (details TBA). For more info, click here.
