Edgebrook Ice Cream Shop

We had a couple comments the other day about an ice cream shop in the north side's Edgebrook neighborhood - home to lots of city workers, including hundreds of police and fire families. There is supposed to be a mural there equating Ferguson with Syria, Iran and North Korea.

Here are some pics sent by a reader:



Supposedly, the entire operation is based out of Madison, Wisconsin, a spot that rivals California for leftist nut jobs. Let's see....got the jackbooted thugs in riot gear. Got the oppressor slogan "For your own good." The tear gas renditions floating across the scene. Dead dove of peace. Yup, it's all there, in a neighborhood that can probably be called one of the more comfortable ones in the city. Personally, we'd be afraid of what got into the ice cream.

there is no way that place generates enough money to stay open

there is never enough business even in the summer

it has to be a money laundering operation

they even give away a ton of ice cream to functions, opening savings accounts, making deposits etc.

to be fair, they go after Obama and Hillary as well, they are entirely anti-establishment, not just anti-Republican

Before it was The Chocolate Shoppe, it was a Baskin Robbins. They used to paint themes on the walls way back then. Nothing as controversial as this, but the murals are not new. We used to go there all the time, but never again. They set up chairs out front on the public way. I wonder if they have the proper permits.

If their ice cream gets advertised like 26/lowe - sugar shack the neighborhood is in for an influx of people from Englewood, Harvey and other quality parts of the city.
Anybody that lives in bridgeport, knows all about the "ghetto shack". Droves of idiots coming to get their fill of sugar while trashing the neighborhood till late early morning hours.
Great idea but it goes beyond the idea of local ice cream shop to make a killing by advertising on rap radio stations and such.
Local people are in for rude awakening, I would compare it to opening a nightclub with hip hop music. Mark my words.

Relax. I was told the following by a close friend. Two weeks before there was a mural about the evils of gay sex. It's comedy. The owner is a Tea Party Patriot that served 2 tours in Vietnam. He hates Rahm, Preckwinkle, O'Connor, and Silvestri. He also want to abolish the IRS.

Whoa, SCC! Those of us who are part of We Stand With The Madison Police Department recognize that Mad City is often accurately said to be an isthmus surrounded by reality but your description of the Edgewood Ice Cream Shoppe is inaccurate.

Edgewood is an independent, locally owned dealer who buys ice cream wholesale from The Chocolate Shoppe in Madison as do hundreds of ice cream stores in 15 states. The only connection to Madison is that they buy their ice cream from The Chocolate Shoppe.

By the way, Chocolate Shoppe ice cream is pretty good but the really good stuff is Babcock Hall made and sold on the University of Wisconsin campus. (Imagine making ice cream for a grade!)

At the end of the day, the Edgewood people may be kooks and wackos, but they're YOUR koos and wackos. We have enough of our own.

How many cops are assaulted, battered, disabled,killed each and every year by civilians. The 2 or 3 "martyrs" of police brutality fucking PALE compared to these numbers! Last I checked, my salary is still mo suffered on the low end of middle class (I'm at 55k and with cost of living and being forced to live here it's more like 30k)...so don't give me its "part of my job" bullshit. Well over 90% of these incidents against the police are committed by minority community members. Time for murals of black thugs attacking the protectors!

Agree 100%. Have lived in area for 30 years and there is no way that the business generates enough money throughout the year to pay rent on that block. The few days that it is crowded in spring and summer don't make up for the 350 days a year it has nobody in it.

I've had that happen about 100 times when walking into various businesses, from people of all races and genders. It's always seemed to be a joke to me. When the cops show up in uniform, certain people think it's funny to make jokes about someone being arrested. "There he is over there, officer." "Oh shit, they found me." It's similar to when people try to get their kids to behave by making a comment about the kid going with the cop when they see a cop in uniform. It's just a lame, overused joke. Get a thicker skin and stop reading so much into frivolous shit. You probably took a harmless situation and made it worse by acting like a little bitch by walking out. Now the woman, who was most likely just making a joke, thinks you're an asshole. She's probably right. You said yourself she smiled at you. Was that not a clue that she meant nothing malicious?

To the poster referring to Napolitano as a dingbat, why don't you tell the whole truth about him, not some cherry picked bullshit you know nothing about. Did Oconnor make you a merit Sgt and you are carrying her water? You are probably some dog ass copper, who never did any work and critizing a guy who was a working copper on the West side. He was smart enough to get off the job and better his life for his family. I'm sure you don't like that either. For starters Napolitano was endorsed by the Republican Party, FOP, CPD Sgts, Local 2 CFD and the Chicago Police Marines. In addition the Italian American Political Coalition and Chicago 2015. Hardly liberal unions or organizations. SEIU endorsed OConnor in 2011 but decided on their own to endorse Naps, without consulating him. They did a radio buy against Oconnor, because she voted with Rahm almost 100% of the time. In addition they wrote him a check for his campaign as did FOP, Sgts Association, Local 2 CFD and the Republicans. Oconnor has probably out spent Naps 6-1. When someone writes a check or buys tv time for a relatively unknown candidate, you take their money. Their is no way to compete with a incumbent with unlimited funds, workers without money. So you go vote for a do nothing surly, miserable part time Alderman who hasn't done shit for the ward. I'm voting for a Republican, former CPD member, current CFD member, Union member who I know will fight for our pensions and insurance. Napolitano will restore the 41st Ward to the only conservative ward, which existed for 20 years prior to OConnors arrival. When you make merit Sgt or Lt, maybe Oconnor can get you a Section 8 Apartment like the ones she encourages at NW Highway and Harlem or west of Cumerland!!

By tolerating rude behavior, we encourage it. I suggest the officer turning around and walking out might teach the clerk not to do that anymore.

Rude behavior? How is it rude to make a lame joke such as I described? Turning around and walking out did nothing but lower that clerk's opinion of the officer in question, and the rest of us. As for teaching her not to do that anymore, I'd suspect the popcorn store clerk isn't much of a learner, nor would this oversensitive reaction be much of a lesson.

I remember sitting inside a Barnes & Noble bookstore in uniform, sipping a hot coffee, when a woman walked over to me with two kids in tow, stating loudly to them, "See that man, kids? He is a police officer, and if you don't listen to me, he'll take you to jail!". I smiled and politely told the kids that it simply was not true- the police like kids, and stated to them, "you can do whatever you want". The look I got from the kids, and drastically different one from their mom- was priceless.

That ice cream shop does a good business. There are ice cream shops open only in summer and closed in winter that do just fine. Get your facts before you make stupid comments about money laundering, obviously you have no clue regarding business.

Believe it or not... The guy loves the police and ice cream is free to the police and their families... The guy is the same guy that put Rham in a ballerina costume several months ago and Obama in the stocks... He is not a bad guy just politically outspoken and controversial. Again.. He is good to the police...yes I know I reside in Edgebrook.

From the comments alone, I get:
This place is family friendly
Gives a good guy deal to police families.
Has a left leaning mural that says black lives matter in a white neighborhood.
A bunch of local (non local police) want to boycott them and put them out of business.
And south siders think they are better than those on the north side for letting this happen.
There are bigger fish to fry.

There are NO bigger fish to fry. It all starts with this kind of shit attitude and snowballs from there. Your apathy is enabling.
