Last Chance For Original Soft Stuff
The Soft Stuff stand has been an Ellicott City institution, and it will close some time in October. Go now. They're already starting the construction that will replace a motel and diner with a modern commercial development. But you can get your cones and enjoy one final night eating ice cream next to your car.
We went Saturday night after a Korean dinner. People were rolling up at a steady pace. The woman working there said they'll stay open until October. They didn't know an exact date yet.
Soft serve is soft serve. I'm not sending you for a gourmet sweet. I'm sending you because the ice cream parlor that will replace Soft Stuff will be like so many other ice cream parlors around. The current stand is a window back in time, and the memory will be as delicious as the dessert.
