Operation Try New Restaurants: Ice It!

Leave a comment

I went for a haircut today. Lo and behold, despite the heat & humidity, it still looks pretty good after walking back to work.

Hi.

On the way to get my hair cut, I was thinking about lunch. I woke up with a migraine this morning and was too discombobulated to make myself one, so I figured I’d grab a sandwich at The Local Press, which I haven’t been to since I tried it over the winter! But…turns they’re closed for the rest of the week for vacation.

What’s next on my walk back? Well, Elsmere BBQ just opened up not too long ago in the old Siano’s spot, so I thought I’d get some barbecue! Buuuut…they don’t open til 4.

Y’ALL. What am I going to eat?

Next up – well, Pat’s is a few doors down, I’ll just go there! YOU GUESSED IT. Closed for the remainder of the week.

The only remaining option on that side of the street was…Ice It! And, don’t get me wrong, I’ve been wanting to give it a try but it’s not exactly a lunch place, y’know? Regardless, I’m about to gnaw my own arm off at this point, so I stop in and grab a peach smoothie, which is more like a slushy, which is actually perfect for me at this (very hot, humid) minute.

I swear there was smoothie in here. Delicious smoothie at that.

I also grabbed a blueberry muffin, which was a perfectly delightful blueberry muffin, and I ate it too fast to take a quick pic of it. (But just picture your perfectly average, everyday blueberry muffin.) Last but not least, I also picked up a lemon bar because it’s hot (have I mentioned that?) and bright, citrusy flavors always make me happy in the heat.

Lemon bar, oh lemon bar, how I love you lemon bar.

Did I eat a lot of sugar for lunch? Yes. Am I glad I at least got something to eat? Absolutely. Would I go back? Yep, just not for a meal…

And yes, I have tried other new-to-me places! I’ve just been terribly lazy about saying so.
