BRIGANTINE, N.J. - People who sit on the beaches of Ventnor, Wildwood, and Atlantic City - where the ice cream man will put his box down and hand over a banana Fudge Bomb without your even moving, except to find the money - might be shocked to learn that in Brigantine, people lack this fundamental Jersey Shore right. And that, for the most part, they do not care. But that, possibly as early as next week, when the City Council is scheduled to vote on a seven-page ice cream ordinance 15 years in the making, they could at last be granted the right of beach ice-cream sales.

If they had stuck a thermometer into the asphalt in front of Duffer's that afternoon, the mercury would have probably burst through the cap. An old basketball buddy had touted Duffer's as the best ice cream palace at the Shore, bar none, and we were certainly not there to prove him wrong. Sure enough, Duffer's (Hildreth and Pacific avenues, Wildwood, 609-729-1817) didn't disappoint. Duffer's, with its adjacent miniature golf course and game arcade, goes for the old-timey feel - Tiffany-style lamps, white-shirted waiters, goofily named sundaes.

It would be nice, at least from the standpoint of girth-control, to be able to unreel some spiel about how we should return to the good old days when ice cream was a rare treat, a dish for special occasions and a special occasion in itself. Goodness knows there's enough nostalgic writing about families' gathering 'round the churn, getting to lick the dasher, etc., to provide plenty of support. Unfortunately, it just ain't true. Ice cream has not just been enjoyed, but enjoyed rather routinely, for 150 years.

On a spring day in 1990, Rockwell "Rock" M. Groves was eliminated. To trim the budget, SPS Technologies Inc., cut his high-powered, $120,000- plus job as vice president of industrial relations. When he got the form letter, Groves, 58, read it eight times - even though he already knew what it said. He had written it. SPS, a maker of airplane parts in Newtown, had begun downsizing after a drop in business. Groves had led the way as architect of the layoffs. Then he became the target.

Once Upon a Porch was an ice-cream parlor at Head House Square. It served wonderful ice cream, and people stood in line with their youngsters just to get a taste. But, unfortunately, Once Upon a Porch didn't live happily ever after. In its place, a new ice-cream parlor evolved. Which was good. Because if you felt like getting in some cool, creamy licks, you could now venture down to Head House Square and get some at Any Thyme. Alas, the new place didn't live happily ever after either.

If you're in the makeover mood and searching for ways to jazz up a family room, here's the scoop: Featured in Barry S. Slosberg Inc.'s gallery auction Sunday are nearly 100 lots of vintage ice-cream parlor memorabilia. They include stools, chairs, tables, a soda-fountain countertop, and a complete booth with two benches, plus signs for such brands as Dolly Madison, Hershey's and Abbotts; blenders, dispensers, and, of course, vintage scoops, a popular collectible. The memorabilia comes from three main consignors, says Slosberg associate Eric Cohen, "the bulk of it . . . from a guy who had set up a little ice-cream parlor in his basement.

Everybody loves ice cream. But this is about people who are passionate about ice cream. "Do you know what it is to have Bassett's French vanilla ice cream with jimmies on top and covered with real whipped cream?" a heart patient fantasized, struggling against the urge to cheat on his doctor's orders. "Believe me, if you have to have a last meal, you couldn't do better. " And for these passionate people, as the Dove Bar proved a couple of years ago, money is no object. Ice cream is a "feel-good" food, and while manufacturers are only too glad to put a price on feeling good, certainly no real ice-cream lover could.

The Yardley mother had been sitting on the steps of her favorite ice-cream parlor, eating her cone and plotting. "I plan to be there at least once a week before it closes," she said later. "I'm just buying things and putting them in the freezer and hoping" that all that accumulated ice cream lasts and lasts and lasts. When the Goodnoe Farm Dairy Bar closes forever - at 10 p.m. on Labor Day - Patti Smialkowski hopes she will have enough ice cream banked in her freezer so that the parlor will not be a memory.

Company description: "Four all-natural, certified organic, low-calorie, gluten-free, kosher hot chocolate affogatos. " Translation: An affogato is an Italian concoction - typically hot espresso (or sometimes a liqueur) poured over frozen gelato, creating a delicious contrast. The Lite Choice's tweaked version is hot chocolate poured over soft-serve or hard ice cream (touted flavors are vanilla, double chocolate, pumpkin or chocolate espresso, although they'll give you whatever flavor you want)

IS THERE ANYTHING Will Ferrell won't do to promote his upcoming sequel to "Anchorman"? He and his franchise are pitching Dodge Durangos in a series of goofy commercials, Jockey underwear and a new flavor of Ben & Jerry's ice cream ("Scotchy Scotch Scotch"). On Saturday, Ferrell, as Ron Burgundy, went on the air at KXMB-TV Bismarck, N.D., to read the news. The actual news. Dressed in his signature three-piece suit and a striped tie, Ferrell punctuated the news with exaggerated eye blinks and engaged in witty banter with weekend anchor Amber Schatz and the rest of the Bismarck news team.

Usually vegetables and desserts are opposed in an either/or kind of way - as in eat the former or you won't get the latter. These days, however, pastry chefs are digging deep for inspiration and whipping up dishes that are definitively both. Take Peter Scarola at R2L, who has manipulated fennel, endive, parsnip, and squash to do his sweet bidding. "Vegetables can make dessert a bit lighter but also more adventuresome," he says. "Used in the right way, they can also be a nice alternative to what we think of as classic recipes and create a surprise element.

I SCREAM, you scream, Kyle Flood screams for ice cream. The Rutgers football coach recently ended practice by yelling for his players to line up and face him. "If we're going to do that drill, we're going to do it right," he bellowed through a megaphone. "Or . . . we're going to get ICE CREAM!!" With that, a Good Humor truck pulled alongside the field and the players showed just how fast they can sprint. In seconds, a large throng had surrounded the vehicle, shouting out orders.

NEW YORK - Don't scream for ice cream. Just pick up your smartphone. Uber, the San Francisco start-up known for letting people order private drivers in sleek black cars using a smartphone app, is offering an ice cream-on-demand service - for one day only - in more than three dozen cities around the world, including Philadelphia, New York, London, Singapore, and Rome. Friday's stunt, an expansion of last year's ice cream promotion, comes in the midst of a sticky heat wave. Last year, people in seven U.S. and Canadian cities could use the Uber app to summon an ice cream truck hired by Uber to their location, provided they purchased a minimum number of treats.

For a generation, the main spot to answer the scream for local ice cream in Philadelphia was Bassetts at the Reading Terminal Market. Then Italian-chic Capogiro entered the scene with its flavor-forward gelato, followed by Franklin Fountain, with its old-timey soda fountain. But over the last few years, those three big names have seen increasing competition as more small-batch, locally made ice cream appears in neighborhoods around the city. Weckerly's in West Philadelphia, which debuted this year, offers French-style ice cream with a luscious, custardlike quality from the inclusion of egg yolks.

DORSET, Minn. - Supporters of the mayor in the tiny tourist town of Dorset can stuff the ballot box all they want as he seeks re-election. The mayor - a short guy - is known for his fondness of ice cream and fishing. And he's got the county's top law-enforcement official in his pocket. Say hello to Mayor Robert "Bobby" Tufts. He's 4 years old and not even in school yet. Bobby was only 3 when he won election last year as mayor of Dorset (population 22 to 28, depending on whether the minister and his family are in town)
