It's So Hard To Say Goodbye

Tragic news broke today that Harvard Square has completed its slow turn toward gentrification with the impending shuttering of Herrell's ice-cream store on Dunster street. The Crimson's Athena Jiang reports that the owner cited rising food costs, sky high rent, and of course, JP Licks for their mounting financial woes.

Without starting an ice cream war, Flyby would like to offer this: We'll miss sharing a cup of "Happy Couple" ice cream in Herrell's wonderfully sketchy vault, or finding that you happened to walk in when your favorite combination of peanut butter, chocolate and caramel was being offered on the menu.

If you don't know what we're talking about, go get a cup before Herrell's closes--perhaps as soon as November. Farewell, we will miss you old friend.
