Wednesday evening. Go downtown, take a walk, stroll by the water tower, stop in for an orange shaved ice with sour spray, walk some more, admire the bats flying out in the moonlight, and finish off the evening by creating run-on sentences with too many commas.
Hey y’all, on this chilly day I am at Snow Monster upping my food photography game. This is a small Coffee Snow Ice with Oreo Bits on top. My personal favorite. Yummy!
The Snow Monster. You win based upon your name alone. Here is how it works. Approach the counter and check out your options on the menu display. Select your size – I got a small. Choose your flavor for the groovy shaved ice – I got Coffee flavor. Pick some Snow Toppings – I got Oreos. Get a drink – I got a bubble tea. Enjoy! Yes, it is that simple and truly an awesome discovery to begin the summer season in Austin. If only they had a Sno Mo a little further north…
Close to the water tower in Downtown Round Rock, there exists the most wonderful place for an icy treat when the weather begins to get warm again. The high today was 81 degrees Fahrenheit, so an afternoon trip to Kawaii Shaved Ice was the perfect plan. Some coworkers and I enjoyed the oasis-like setting for a short team building exercise. I ordered my standby shaved ice flavor – grape. We then enjoyed the shady tables, shooed off a few small bees who wanted in on the grape action but were too shy to pose for a photo, and had some nice conversations. I will have to remember to visit again soon and maybe experiment with a new flavor next time…
The conversation at work today:
Work Friend 1: “What’s that?”
Me: “It’s a shaved ice. Grape.”
Work Friend 1: “Where did you get that?”
Me: “At Kawaii Shaved Ice in downtown Round Rock.”
Work Friend 2: “Do you know anyone beyond the age of six that still gets those?”
Me: “Yeah, me.”
My friends at work are so jealous… 🙂
