Earlier today, we told you about a contest Big Gay Ice Cream was holding to find the location of their new store. The winner gets FREE ice cream for up to 8 people at the new store.

Not long ago, BGIC tweeted out the winner, and divulged their new location.

WINNER! New NYC place at 7th Ave and Grove! RT @amandaau:@biggayicecream Making dreams come true.

Congratulations to Amanda Au, who we know through her internship with Coolhaus. Hey Amanda, we’ll be waiting for our invitation.

Amanda spotted the following sticker in the window of 61 Grove St.
Yes, the 2nd Big Gay Ice Cream Shop will be at 61 Grove St, on the corner of 7th Ave. That’s just 1 block south of the Christopher St station on the 1 train, right in the middle of one of the gayest neighborhoods in the world. Across 7th Ave is the Stonewall Inn, where the Gay Rights Movement was inadvertently founded
We live nearby, so expect to see us there often.
There’s not a lot of ice cream competition in the immediate area, but Wafels & Dinges park their truck weekend nights on 7th Ave between Grove & Christopher St. Looks like that block will be dessert heaven very soon!
