    it's a pretty decent hike. about a mile and half. I guess the possibilty of such a walk depends on if your obeast and/or lazy.

      Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.

        The walk will justify a guilt free cupcake

          Spitz is just a bit east of Eagle Rock Plaza shopping center where Target is located on Colorado. Auntie Em's is on Eagle Rock Blvd. just a coupla blocks north of York Blvd., or as jeffro says, a pretty decent hike.
          As to the gelato, here is a link to their website where they tell you that they make all their own either on premises or nearby. Just click on the gelato heading on the left side once the home page opens up.
          Think I may need to try that stuff reallly soon.

            I would estimate that you're talking about 2 miles. But if you start at Spitz, it is downhill. Take the backroad (Ellenwood) at least part of the way.

              I dunno where they get their gelato from (and nor do I pretend to be an expert on the matter), but the gelato at Spitz was quite good the 2 times I tried it, plus they are very generous with their samples ...
