Last night, a dear friend and I had ourselves a girls’ night out down in Southtown (the south side of downtown San Antonio) at a delicious Belgian restaurant called, La Frite. The food was amazing, and our night probably would have concluded there, except just next door we spotted a “boozey” ice cream shop. What the what? It didn’t matter if we were full, this was a must-try situation.
The House (it’s actual name) was hopping with hipsters, and mohawks and tiny children who wear Vans. And this 40 year-old mom felt a bit out of place, but I didn’t care. I wanted the ice cream. I NEEDED the ice cream.
When we finally made it to the counter and asked to sample some flavors, the most awesome thing happened…WE GOT CARDED! FOR ICE CREAM!!! I always love getting carded, but for ice cream? Best day ever. They weren’t kidding about the boozey, were they?
I ended up with the oh-so-nummy Bourbon Vanilla.
My friend ended up with a waffle cone full of Mint Chocolate Chip, flavored with a crème de menthe liqueur.
We were both extremely happy.
If you’re not the “boozey” type, or wondered what on earth those children were doing there, don’t worry – they have several flavors that don’t require an ID. Last night was actually their first night to be open, and was a “soft” opening that we were just lucky enough to attend! Based on what I tasted and saw, I think they are gonna do OK.
I couldn’t find a website, Facebook page, Twitter handle OR Instagram for The House just yet, but I will tell you, they are located at 732 S. Alamo St., San Antonio 78205. Show this new local business some love!
Peace and Love,
