Neat Neighborhood Finds: Volume Three

Rasberry ice, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

As I was walking home this evening in the brutal heat nothing could have made me happier than encountering an old school Shaved Ice offering on Georgia Ave just south of Upshur. These drinks are of the old school where the ice is shaved and the flavoring is delicious. Think little Italy in the 50s. So the next time it is 105 degrees instead of weeping, like I normally do, head to Georgia Ave and get an ice flavored drink for 2 bucks. And if you thought it couldn’t get any better than that, they have sliced mangoes! Check out all the flavors in the photo below.
