It’s hot. It’s really hot. When I think about taking my kids anywhere, I imagine us sweaty, cranky and thirsty. But we’re not staying home today. I have a plan. I wake my three-year-old from her nap and before the usual “I’m tired” crying starts I make her an offer she can’t refuse.
Do you want to get an icy?
On a hot day like today, Uncle Louie G’s Italian Ices in Eastchester are a little cup of heaven and the perfect afternoon activity. With over 40 flavors, you can create the Italian ice of your dreams. My girls both ordered rainbow and cotton candy. I had watermelon and coconut and my mom had chocolate and mango. Get your icy in a Styrofoam cup (better for little ones) or paper cup, just like ices were sold in the good ol’ days. And if you prefer ice cream, Louie G’s also serves over 20 flavors of ice cream as well as sundaes, milk shakes and ice cream cakes.
Seating is limited at the Eastchester location; there is another Louie G on Midland Avenue in Yonkers. We took the two small tables and four chairs inside. Everyone else who came into the store took their ices outside, but even on this hot day, they didn’t seem to mind. It’s amazing how a frozen treat can cool you off. Guess what? It’s going to be hot all week. Go get your icy!
