Days opens Saturday, May 23, 2020.  Hours:  noon to eight.

You read the menu at the entrance. (which is closed) and step by the windows to give your order to someone inside.  No cones.  They call your name when ready, and you pay to receive your order.


YO YO MA,  JAMES TAYLOR  “Here Comes the Sun”  by George Harrison.


"Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun
Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right."

Run, don’t walk for a cone at Days. I had rocky road: marvelous. Eileen had mocha (coffee) with chunks of dark chocolate–excellent.  Paul Goldfinger photographs. 5/19/19. ©  Blogfinger.net

Remember the Coneheads?  Jane Curtin and Dan Aycroyd.  Well, that name has taken on new meaning, because ice cream fans in the Grove, not having Nagles to stand in line for, will now find Days open every day through the season.

We went there today and were behind a family from France who were ordering ice cream and coffee.

How ironic, because when they asked the Coneheads on Saturday Night Live where they were from,  they said, “France.”

Bonjour. Visitors from France order at Days.   Paul Goldfinger photo. Dave is behind the counter.

Better than anything else that I’ve tried

Days is busy. This is a chocolate soda with chocolate chip (vanilla) ice cream, whipped cream, and , yes, a cherry please. Paul Goldfinger photo. Market day. 6/16/18 ©


THE KODOKS:  “Oh Gee, Oh Gosh”    (With Pearl McKinnion singing the false falsetto.  She sounded like Frankie Lymon, but she never got famous.  Later she got known singing the Frankie Lymon part in his cover band.)

Three of us went to Days for dessert last night—Friday,  October 6.. We were ambivalent  because this would be the last day we would have a Days ice cream until 2018.

We like to go for the night shift and to join the other enthusiastic fressers sitting in that historic venue downing some frozen delights.  Just having it there makes the experience even better. Our friends used to skip lunch to go to Days—“We’re having ice cream for lunch,” they would say.

The actual last day at Days is Sunday, October 8.

We were going to take a sundae home for our son.  We knew that our scooper, a young woman, was a pro.  She had to deal with a complicated, albeit bizarre, order without writing anything down. She didn’t even frown or wince when I asked her for:  a large hot fudge sundae, moose tracks ice cream, caramel and butterscotch syrups, chocolate sprinkles, whipped cream and a cherry.

My favorite flavors are chocolate chip  (vanilla ice cream) and chocolate chip mint which might be a turn-off because it’s green and tastes a bit like mouthwash, but it goes great with hot fudge.

What are  your favorite Days ice cream stories or flavors or special requests?   Let’s share—stories, not ice cream.

A sweet talking guy  says, “Can I come over tonight?  I’ll bring some  Days ice cream.”   But the Chiffons sound a note of caution regarding such sugary enticements:
