Coming soon to South Grand!

According to owner Dana Sherman, the new store doesn't have a projected opening date yet, but a property has been acquired. For more info on the original Gelateria, check out our listing and my predecessor Rose Martelli's review.

It's no land crab or even octosquid, but a 550-pound squid "as long as a bus" has washed up on the Australian shore. Waiting for the obligatory calamari joke? Actually, according to the article, a giant squid contains too much ammonia to be tasty. (AP)
