Coming Soon: Snow Story Ice Cream Roll

Not to be confused with Snowdays, which just opened a bit further up the block yesterday, my friend today emailed me these photos of yet another dessert place coming in to Austin Street.
This is directly across from the church down near Ascan, where a nail salon used to be.
See below the pics for more info about ice cream rolls.

From Zagat: Forget crazy flavors or over-the-top ice cream sandwiches, this summer's hottest dessert is a frozen treat that's made its way to NYC by way of Thailand. Thai-style ice cream rolls have debuted at not one, but three shops this season, but what exactly makes this chilled specialty different from your typical scoop? It's made to order, for one. Here's how it works: An ice cream base and your choice of add-ins are poured onto an anti-griddle, a metal plate that can get as cold as -4 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the owners of I-CE NY. Then, in Cold Stone-esque fashion, the staff chops and smashes the ingredients together with metal paddles as they start to freeze. In just minutes, the cream firms up and it's spread into a thin layer, then scraped into the chubby rolls that we're seeing all over Instagram.

Snowdays Grand Opening

Unfortunately, I had to give up after waiting several minutes on the long line.  I'll be back!

Breathtaking Moment

Aside from being a lover of fast food, I'm also a lover of history, and this truly brought a tear to my eye today...

Shake Shack Dinner Rush

Looks like the one-block choice on my poll was correct, at least as of around 6:20 p.m. on this heat-wave opening day... Thanks to John for sending in the photo!

Shake Shack Opening Day

If anyone happens to notice long lines or anything else of interest at today's opening day, please snap a pic and email it to us at I swung by earlier, but me and my compadres can't be there all the time so we rely on our readers just as much!

Shake Shack Preview

I attended the "Friends & Family Day" at our new Shake Shack today. I already want to go again and have another burger. The Shack opens to the general public tomorrow at 11 a.m.

Here are some photos...
