When I was sixteen in 1956, I used to be a "soda jerk" and short order cook after school at Jahn's in Cedarhurst, L.I. New York. They are no longer there but continue to flourish in Jackson Heights, Queens, NY.
It was great fun! They used to do a "Kitchen Sink" that contained about 24 huge scoops of ice cream with all the toppings in the house and could easily feed a dozen people for only $6.00. According to Wikipedia, they still offer it. For 8 people. $51.95! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jahn's
