How much of this could you eat in two hours?

Sometimes the universe gives you things you don't need, like this all-you-can-eat gelato bar at Ristorante Asellina. Starting now, every Thursday through Saturday the restaurant will have an outdoor gelato cart serving up the sweet stuff (at $3 scoop or $20 a pint), along with toppings like crumbled biscotti and pairings like espresso or booze. This will all get you prepared for the big event on August 8th, when they pull out their unlimited gelato offering.

On that magically gluttonous night, for just $10, you'll get two full hours (6 to 8 p.m.) at the all-you-can-eat gelato bar. Prepare thyself for brain freeze, and BYO-Elastic Waist Pants.

Ristorante Asellina is located at 420 Park Avenue South (at 29th Street)
