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.

POPE FRANCIS may be one of the holiest men on the planet, but when he tastes the new flavor of ice cream that the dapper brothers over at the Franklin Fountain were asked to create for his meal at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary this weekend, he'll sure feel sinful. Brothers Ryan and Eric Berley, who have owned the ever-popular Old City ice-cream-and-soda shop on Market Street near Letitia for 11 years, concocted their new flavor, "caramelized banana," specifically to meet the sweet tastes of this sweet pope.

I WAS a teenage soda jerk. Nowadays, I'm just . . . a vegan columnist. Obviously, I don't drink the cow-derived milkshakes I used to guzzle at the end of a shift. But I still love the creamy goodness of a tall chocolate shake, minus the original's sad backstory. Fortunately, as I've predicted in earlier columns, vegan ice creams are proliferating in Philly. I know, ice-cream cones are fun, but those of us who want to mainline ice-cream deliciousness know that the milkshake is the format that delivers.

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.

Every day this summer, a line has spilled out of the small ice cream shop, down the front steps, and along the sidewalk on the north side of Walnut Street across from Washington Square. Saturday was no different, as dozens waited in the heat for their $7 frozen treat. Like Black Friday shoppers angling for the doors to open, they waited. Like a group of sneakerheads minutes before a big shoe drop, they waited. Like concertgoers eager to nab tickets, they waited. But here, in the 700 block of Walnut Street, they waited for a cup of Sweet Charlie's Thai rolled ice cream — Philadelphia's hottest cold thing this summer.

With a name like MilkBoy . . . "Yes, I wondered why they didn't have ice cream before," said Chris Beyer, the Garces alum who started this year as chef for the bar/restaurant/live music venues. With the recent opening of a South Street location, Beyer decided to make house-churned ice cream. "This is South Street," he said. "It just goes here. " He's clearly having fun with his three varieties, especially with the cereal milk. "It harkens back to childhood, where you're slurping the milk at the bottom of the bowl.

On the 234th anniversary of the creation of the Badge of Military Merit - later renamed the Purple Heart, a medal much in the news lately - consider the history of the Emergency Aid of Pennsylvania (EAP), a women's organization founded to help wounded soldiers and distressed civilians alike. At the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, a plurality of Philadelphians - like most Americans - favored a policy of neutrality toward the European war. However, "in a modern world war, proclamations of neutrality are almost meaningless.

Philadelphia's Chinatown has long been a destination for certain things: implausibly cheap fruits and vegetables, an endless supply of beckoning-cat statues, and banquets of spicy delicacies spinning on tabletop lazy susans. But, fortune cookies aside, it was not really where you'd go for dessert. In the last year or so, that's changed. At least eight new dessert spots have opened (or will soon) within the few blocks framed by Ninth and 11th Streets, Filbert to Vine, bringing whole genres of sweets you didn't know you were craving.

OK, WE'RE DEEP into summer fun, and you probably abandoned your 2016 exercise and nutrition resolutions months ago, right?

I'm being gaslighted by my refrigerator. For months, I'd been suspicious of my freezer; specifically, that it's thawing and refreezing my food. A bag of frozen peas, once loose and flexible, is transmuted into a solid block of bumpy ice by the time I go to cook them. No matter how many times I've sneaked "just a spoonful" from a pint of ice cream - yes, living-alone rules - the ice cream's surface will be rendered smooth and flat, the evidence of my nibbling erased. "Maybe I didn't break my diet, after all," I'd say to myself the next night I opened the container.
