Ice Cream Social and Foodie Fantasy Buzz

This post is for my records (and for my parents to enjoy), folks. Please feel free to move along — I promise not to quiz you later.
Some lovely friends and local media recently covered the Foodie Fantasy win and ice cream social, and one of the ways I use this blog is to record that kind of stuff.
