Last October, the Home of Cheers liquor store on 8th Avenue and 18th Street shuttered.
It moved further up the avenue, to a smaller space, leaving behind its vintage neon signage.
So what's coming next to the spot? What else but a luxury, artisanal frozen treat shop? Not fro-yo this time, but gelato. The Amorino international franchise has its banner up, complete with a giant vulval gelato in a cone and the words "Natural Love."
They also sell macarons, those ubiquitous little cookie things that seem to be replacing cupcakes in the hearts of people who get weird about cupcakes.
