Big Gay Ice Cream Shop Opens in NYC, Gets Benediction from Drag Queen, Anthony Bourdain, Bassoonists: VIDEO

Bgics1

Videographer Kathleen McGivney attended this weekend's opening of the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop, the brick-and-mortar offspring of Doug Quint's beloved Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. You know you've won when Anthony Bourdain shows up to your shop in a priest's outfit.

Said Bourdain: "We are all God's creatures....Who among us has not yearned for the curious embrace of a Salty Pimp or seriously considered burying their face in a Bea Arthur? ... May you go forward and make a sh*tload of money ... Sell a lot of motherf**kin' ice cream!"

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. Ok, seriously, Why do some comments never make it up on this page? I know you aren't screening (Or hopefully you would have screened some of the more vile ones!), So why is it that some comments fall through the cracks?

  4. As a member of the clergy (an honorable calling) for nearly a quarter century, I find this report and the language used by someone posing as a priest extremely offensive. I realize that this was done in "fun" but it is just wrong.

  5. Oh Jim. Jim. Jim. Jim. Dear Jim. Sweet Jim. Why is it wrong? Why are priests so special they must be immunized from parody?

  6. If the clergy is such an honorable calling then why do we hear so much about their penchant for diddling kids? Jim, get over yourself and your "concern".

  7. Priests are offensive. Anthony Bourdain is a national treasure.

  9. I would much rather see Anthony Bourdain in a priest outfit than an actual priest in or out of one.

  10. Jim - get over yourself. If you don't want to be offended, don't read.

  12. I bet that was a fun day!
    In the first pic, is that Bourdain's lovely Italian wife next to him? She's been in an episode or two of his show, and is quite a delight.
