Gifford's--Silver Spring, MD (outside Washington)
Anybody else remember this place? Or is it, by any chance, still there? When I was growing up in the Washington DC suburbs it was THE place to go for ice cream. It was like a large ice cream parlor--many tables where people could sit and eat their sundaes, sodas and other gooey concoctions although I usually just got a chocolate chip sugar cone. My recollection is the building was covered in white stucco with embedded mirrored glass so it looked like a snow castle--with polar bears even!
