You live nearby...do you have a Bruster's???
Have you tried their pumpkin pecan ice cream? They have pumpkin, pumkpin pecan, pumpkin cheesecake, and pumpkin pecan cheesecake...all of which are good. But I must admit to really loving the ones with pecans in them.
They constantly run out of them here at my bruster's but I just get them to pack me a pint or whatever and keep it for me (order it the day before).
Oh and I agree...that cheesecake factory pumpkin cheesecake totally rocks.
