Opinion: Denver could use a few more ice cream shops

No wonder the lines get so long at Little Man.

No wonder the lines get so long at Little Man — Denver only has .9 ice cream shops per 10,000 people.

That’s not enough, and if you’ve waited in the scorching hear of the sun outside Sweet Action, you know this to be true. If we all decided we wanted ice cream at once, it’d be pandemonium.

Luckily, that’s extremely unlikely to happen, and the ice cream shops we do have work very hard to delight us. They may have a density of 6.6 shops per 10,000 people in Ouray County, but they don’t even have that many people in Ouray County. So while they certainly have shorter lines, they probably don’t have as many options.
