Get Excited: Surprise Ice Cream Social!

19 June 2011 1,164 views 10 Comments

With summer officially a couple days away, those of us in Austin have been battling triple digit heat for weeks already. And while it gets hot in other places during the summer, in Austin, we’ll see over 100 degree days well into September. Add to that our current drought conditions, and we’re a bunch of hibernating grumps down here.

Having recently battled strep throat, thereby spending even more time huddled inside, I’m feeling in need of a pick-me-up, and I know you do too. Also, I want to thank you for supporting my quest to win Whole Foods Foodie Fantasy (and I won!).

My way of saying thank you will be with one of my favorite foods — ICE CREAM!

The time and location of the ice cream social have not yet been determined, and in the hopes of being able to provide everyone who attends with a cup, I won’t be giving much notice. Stay tuned to the Facebook group or Twitter to get the details, which will be released the same day as the event.

Until then, stay cool and check out the Forklore blog on Austin360 for some of Mike Sutter’s favorite cooling treats.

    Great idea Jodi – Will be watching the internets like a hawk. Hope I'm in town for it!

    I'll be on the first flight down to celebrate you with ice cream. Memories of driving over to Baskin and Robbins for our summer evening treat.

    I'm so glad I stopped by your blog today. I didn't realize there was a facebook group until now, and I've joined! Glad you're feeling better and that ice cream is in the works soon. :)
