When you want to live on the edge and let the winds of fate dictate what ice cream you’re going to consume, you have two options: blindly opening the grocery store freezer and grabbing a random pint (or tub of frozen gravy) or going to Polly Ann. Show up, have one of the scoopers spin the wheel, and take what you’re given. OK fine, you can actually choose the one it lands on, or one of the options on either side of it, but in any case, it’s a good way to get out of your vanilla rut. This is by far the best ice cream option in the Sunset.
