What's up with the ice cream man frequently showing up at 10:00 PM or later when no kids are out? It doesn't appear he's selling any ice cream.

  • Probably dope.

    THANK YOU! I posted about this on FB awhile back and everyone kinda laughed it off. But I think it is ODD. Its a loud truck and will usually play some of its music for a few seconds (sometimes more, sometimes not at all). Late night ice cream delivery or drugs?

  • Kate Dudenaw

    I always wondered if he had something besides ice cream.

  • Inactive user

    YES! It's lately been between 8-10p and we always say it must be drugs. Has anyone called the cops/alderman about it?

  • Kate Dudenaw

    Oh I meant tamales or something, but I guess it could be drugs too.

    ice cream/tamale truck? decent idea.

    We've been in the neighborhood for many years and he always stops at the same house around 10:00 PM. Come to think of it, it's the same house that 6 special operations cops visited a few weeks ago. All I'm saying is that its suspicious and wondered if anyone knew anything.

  • Kate Dudenaw

    well that adds a whole new angle.

    which street does he stop on for that? he is also always on our street, but ive seen him on chestnut as well, but at normal hours.

    The adults need ice cream?

  • I know - i totally gave him my recipe for vodka-mango smoothie and now sit on my porch steps, $$ in hand, eagerly looking up and down the street, wondering - where the heck my smoothie at?!!!

  • Dave The Dude

    I have seen this ice cream truck during those weird extra late hours too and was thinking he must be a drug dealer, but then the more I thought about it.... Wouldn't a drug dealer want to keep a much lower profile than attracting people with that ice cream truck music?

  • Thank you!!!! Dude is outside our house EVERY night at 9..I'm in humbolt park..I'm sure he's making his way toward you. And he's not just driving through, I see him park on the corner and sit..
