    Philly Cyclist's Petition Against Parking in Bike Lanes Racks Up Nearly 1,000 Signatures
    Can't we all just get along? Can't cars and bicycles maintain a symbiotic relationship on Philly's streets? Apparently not.

SPOTLIGHT: PHIT HOUSE TEAM FJORD

Some people say that Fjord is a long and narrow inlet between two cliffs. Other people say Fjord rhymes with sword. We honestly don’t know – does anyone truly know? No they don’t because everything is subjective, except chocolate which we can all agree is objectively delicious. BUT if there is one thing we do know for certain, it is that there is an astounding PHIT Harold Night House team also known as Fjord and they have kindly answered some of our very topical very current questions regarding their existence.

Treat Yourself: Philadelphia's Best Ice Cream

Pick the ice cream (or fro-yo) and mix-ins (think multiple flavors of cookie dough, every candy you desire, cereals and syrups), and DeVille’s powerful frosty robot will churn them into a delicious treat. Or pick from one of their signature creations. 1315 Walnut St., 215.988.9992

Appreciators of the Salty Pimp ice cream concoction rejoiced when the beloved New York soft-serve operation opened its Philly location last year on South Street. 521 S. Broad St., 267.886.8024

Established in 1861, Bassetts is one of the oldest ice cream makers in America; the stand at the Reading Terminal Market is as iconic as its butter pecan. Reading Terminal Market, 1211 Chestnut St., 215.864.2771

    There's such an abiding love for ice cream here, Philly is downright sprinkled with sprinkles-plus crushed nuts, shaved chocolate, Maraschino cherries and some awesome ice cream parlors.
