It may or may not be true that people eat more ice cream in the winter than in the summer. And it may or may not be true that the same stats hold for those who live in the über chic beachfront town of Venice. Either way, now there's more reason to head over to N'iceCream, the Abbot Kinney gelato shop, this winter: they're open at 7 a.m. as of today, and also as of today their organic New Frontier coffee and hot chocolate will be only $1 a cup. The offer will last for the rest of 2010. Why? Why not. Happy New Year from Christian Toxboe and Laura Nielson, the Danish pair who own the place. Get a breakfast scoop of vanilla or salted caramel gelato to go with.
