Welcome to Tuesday, Miami.

Hope everyone enjoyed this past weekend’s celebrations, whether they commemorated Juneteenth, Pride Month, Father’s Day, or all of the above. Yesterday marked the start of summer, so we’re going to try to keep things cool and breezy today, starting with a Miami ice cream institution...

🍦 Dasher & Crank was declared Florida’s best spot for ice cream in a recent countrywide survey by Food & Wine. The Wynwood shop was shouted out for its vegan offerings, wide variety of flavors, and its Instagram-ready presentation. (Food & Wine / Local 10)

📰 New information suggests that the tragedy that killed one and left another injured during Wilton Manors’ Stonewall Pride Parade and Festival on Saturday was unintentional. According to Fort Lauderdale law enforcement officials, the 2011 Dodge Ram that struck parade participants was supposed to be part of the event’s procession before the driver accidentally accelerated and struck two people. Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis, who witnessed the incident firsthand, has walked back his initial comments calling it a “terrorist attack.” (NBC 6 South Florida)

💊 A Miami-Dade County commissioner wants to attract pharmaceutical companies to the area. Commissioner Rebeca Sosa — who represents constituents in Hialeah, Miami Springs, Coral Gables, and the surrounding area — told New Times that her proposal would bring better-paying jobs to the county and complement existing cargo infrastructure at PortMiami and Miami International Airport. (Miami New Times)

😡 Miami road rage got more heated than usual yesterday when two drivers exchanged gunfire while driving along I-95. Although both vehicles were struck, thankfully no one was injured. (NBC 6 South Florida)
