Here we are in the dead of winter with 60-degree temperatures. Sweet. If only Sweet Action Ice Cream, the awesome addiction at 52 Broadway that churns out flavors like brown sugar banana, blueberry lavender, baklava and salted butterscotch and Stranahan's caramel brickle, wasn't taking the WHOLE MONTH OF JANUARY OFF because of -- sheesh -- a vacation. "Yes, it's true. We will be closed the entire month for winter vacation," warns the website.
That just sucks.
The upside? You can stop licking your wounds beginning at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, February 2, which is when Sweet Action will start scooping ice cream again.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
