July is National Ice Cream Month, a legacy of President Ronald Reagan, and today, 7/19, is National Ice Cream Day.

Let's hear about new purveyors that have opened up plus your tried and true favorites. Please tell us about good places to stop when you're in the neighborhood as well as destination spots that are worth a trip.

Fenton's in Oakland and Vacaville marked today commemorating its 121st birthday with $1.21 black and tans. I heard that the wait in Oakland is over an hour.

Me, I kicked off the month with dinner at San Francisco's The Progress ending with a trio of desserts shared with my dining companions. We had consensus that the best of the three was the Malted stracciatella ice cream topped with walnut sandies and a tart-sweet raspberry compote. Very rich and dense ice cream shot through with fine shards of dark chocolate, more coarsely chopped black walnuts than cookie bits, and all complimented very well by the tartness of the berries.
