Congratulations to Uncle Louie G in Keyport, New Jersey!

Joe Causi and the CBS-FM Street Team will visit the tri-state’s best ice cream shop — Uncle Louie G’s in Keyport, NJ on Wednesday, August 17th from 2-4PM. We hope you can join us!

Pizza? Been there.

Hot dogs? Done that.

Now it’s time for dessert.

July is National Ice Cream Month and we think there is no better way to cool down during the Summer than with a cold, tasty treat. Whether you enjoy some classic chocolate or a wild concoction covered in countless toppings, ice cream is the way to most anyone’s heart.

Apologies to those who don’t tolerate lactose.

While his stomach has no problem handling dairy, “Brooklyn’s Own” Joe Causi has spent the last year or so watching his health and weight, losing a total of 150 lbs to date!

*pauses for applause*

With that in mind, we decided Joe is the right man for this ice cream search. No, he’s not going to go town to town trying scoop after scoop of ice cream. But treats are good in moderation and Joe Causi never settles for less than the best, especially if he’s going to take a break from his healthy diet.

As we’re sure you have already guessed, the rest is up to you. CBS-FM wants to know where the best ice cream in the tri-state can be found: from the five boroughs to New Jersey, Rockland and Westchester counties, and Connecticut. Whether it’s a mom & pop shop or a local truck hitting the hot pavement to cool down locals, we want to know about it.
