Sign of Spring.

Posted By on Mon, Apr 5, 2010 at 7:28 PM


With the sudden heat that's come across our state (which we'll fondly dream of as "cool weather" come July) comes that culinary staple of the season:  frozen desserts.  I noticed the other day that Shake's Frozen Custard has reopened on Westhaven Drive.  I found this Small Fudge Brownie Concrete ($2.97, $3.25 with tax) was a nice quick and satisfying treat on a lovely warm afternoon.

Which got me to thinking... what local restaurants do we have that do good ice cream?  You know, the sort that dribbles a bit on flip-flop bottomed feet when eaten outside at a picnic table after being handed through a drive-in or drive-thru window?  I have a couple in mind, but wondered what you were thinking of.  Suggestions?

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
