Each week we work hard to pay the bills. The grind is real. As you know, some days are great, and some days can be tough. That's life!

The other day I had a long day, and I wasn't in the best of moods, so I needed something to cheer me up. I promise, this isn't a sob story.

Luckily, my girlfriend reminded me that Strollo's on Main St. in Belmar is open for the season. Once she said that, all my problems disappeared. Her and I walked out of my Belmar condo and made our way a few blocks north for some grub. We had a delicious meal at Anchor Tavern and then for dessert, we stopped at the legendary Strollo's. More below!

It was our first Strollo's trip of the season! If you are a local you know that the unofficial start of summer is when Strollo's opens. Now is the best time to go too. Before you know it, you'll be standing in line for a half hour.

True fans know that Strollo's in Belmar is totally different than the others around the Jersey Shore. It's better! The ice cream is better, the Italian ice is better. I think Strollo's in Belmar is the best place for both ice & ice cream at the Jersey Shore. The soft serve ice cream is incredible. My go to order is the vanilla Italian ice.

I guess what I am trying to say is, things can always be worse. No matter how difficult things are in your personal life or at work, you always can rely on Strollo's to cheer you up. Hell, I am eating incredible Italian Ice in a beautiful Jersey Shore beach town. Not many people in this country can do that. I have no reason to be complaining! I hope you have a wonderful summer with your family and friends. P.S. - Did Strollo's make the list below?!
