Prepare yourselves for the whiskey gelato bar: creamy, whiskey-spiked gelato dipped in even creamier milk chocolate rolled in a tasteful amount of salty bacon.

For a while, you may have seen Black Dog Gelato appear on a number of restaurant menus and thought "Wow, that sounds good!" You now have a chance to skip the middle man and go straight to the source. Gourmet gelato and sorbet maker Jessica Oloroso has opened her Wicker Park store with a bang, and her unusual flavor combinations may surprise you. You'll get to choose from varieties like cocoa nib with toasted pecan, Mexican hot chocolate, goat cheese cashew caramel, and sesame fig chocolate chip. Oloroso is the former pastry chef at Scylla, so when she hands you a grapefruit peppercorn soda and a gelato cookie sandwich, TAKE IT!
