We haven't been this excited about a "---- of the month" club since we found out about the bacon of the month club last year. If you're an ice cream addict or if one of your family members is a fan of Black Dog Gelato, this is the gift that will make them love you forever: a gelato of the month club.

Black Dog Gelato is popping up at more and more restaurants and markets every day, and their new storefront is a dessert paradise - whiskey gelato bar with bacon, anyone? But the store i only open three days a week, and it's cold outside! Why not get the creamy goodness delivered right to your door?

For $125, you get 6 months of ice cream. From December through May, expect two quarts a month to be delivered straight to you. Flavors will be a mix of exclusive and Black Dog standards. Yes, yes, before you start complaining, we know it's expensive. But it's the best ice cream in Chicago, and you don't have to get out of your pajamas to get it.

Call the store to order (773.235.3116) or email Orders will be accepted until Dec. 23.
