You don’t care that the birds are awake before you or that a tulip is struggling to grow in the mulch next to your driveway. No. Spring only starts when Murray’s (4120 Pennsylvania) Ice Cream & Cookies is back open for business.
The Pitch was the first to notice that Murray’s has returned and learned from owner/namesake Murray Nixon that Midnight Mole (dark chocolate with hot peppers) was the top seller last year. The Westport scoop shop closed for the season on December 8, 2013. As for the opening 2014 lineup, Murray’s Facebook tells us you can currently dig in to:
French Silk Fantasy, Blueberry Cheesecake, Praline Pecan, Banana Almond, Cappuccino Crunch, Orange Chocolate Fudge, Lime Sorbet, Malt Licker, The Chocolate Zone, Peanut Butter & Fudge, Oreos ‘n Cream, The Ultimint Mint, Chunky Chocolate Chip, Dutch Chocolate, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Flake Fromage.
In addition to ice cream, they serve coffee and cookies (order two and have them make you an impromptu ice cream sandwich). They also have free Wi-Fi. Murray’s celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and is open from 12 to 9 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. It’s cash only. The phone number is 816-931-5646.[Image via Facebook: Murray’s]
