Getting ‘creamed in Tarrytown0

When I’m out of town and actually get a few minutes to read the NY Times on a Sunday, I always check out the Metropolitan section for a taste of life on the outside. Today, within the less than enthusiastic feature review of an Italian joint in Scarsdale (I swear, the only ratings restaurants get in that section are ‘OK’) there was a ‘Quick Bite’ on Lighthouse Ice Cream Kompany (LICKS!) in Tarrytown.

Started by a former business man/politician who was encouraged by friends to take his homemade creations to the masses, he uses all fresh and (whenever possible) local ingredients. It may be a natch place to stop for a homemade ‘cream while touring the river towns — it’s next to the train station, which happens to be right along the Hudson and a public park with a playground. So after the sugar high the kids can run themselves ragged while you read the Styles section.
