I had to read that, like, four times to figure it out. :p

It's worth noting that that was my winter get up in Pigeon Forge, but this was the first time it was actually cold enough to wear it in Florida.

I'm underwhelmed by the parade... The captions are what made it interesting.

That's because it's a parade.

Great photos! I would have liked to have seen Toxic Audio. They are a great a capella group out of Orlando.

Maybe next time you two can be balloon holders. I would like to see both of you in those stylish garbage men outfits.

^our dog was a whippet, called Devo. Not overly original, but when most people got it they smiled.

^ I like that. I also like the way my thread has devolved recently. By the by, the just released CE14 starts with the song Fresh from Devo's new album, so props to Robb as well!

Before I begin this update, I'd like to give a shout out to BeemerBoy, without whom I might never have heard of this place to begin with, and also for reminding me about it on Facebook just before we headed down that way. Thanks, Scott.

Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant, Dania Beach
01IMGP9546.JPG
Part of a strip mall, but has allegedly been there for over 50 years.
04P2175261.JPG
According to the menu, their signature "Kitchen Sink" is reserved for parties of four or more, is $12.95 per person, and sharing is not allowed. So by my reading, if there are four of you, it will cost $51.80. But if there are five of you, the same amount of ice cream will cost a total of $64.75.
05P2175262.JPG
Real thing, or total BS? I'll let you decide for yourself. (Or, you know, you could Google it, I guess.)
10P2175295.jpg
There's a walk-up window if you just want ice cream. Said ice cream, incidentally, is the best we've found so far in Florida.
15P2175268.JPG
The inside of the first room, looking back at the entrance. License plates and craziness seems to be the theme.
17IMGP9565.JPG
I'm very excited to be here.
18P2175267.JPG
These are not today's flavors. These are just today's *special* flavors. There are about 35 or 40 normal ones.
20P2175291.JPG
We're shown to the second room (which was actually the original half of the establishment, I believe.)
25P2175266.jpg
The food is quite expensive, for what it is. But it is good, and the place is packed from about noon on. Luckily, we got there right when they opened (at 11:30am) and had no problems. Also, they give you free popcorn. :oP
30P2175277.jpg
Our burgers were $12.95 a piece, and didn't even come with fries. But, again, they were really good. The chili cheese fires were just okay, though.
35P2175284.JPG
Dunt-dunnana-na-naaaah! For the record, the big one is mine. It's a "Chocolate Suicide Sundae," except that I had them make it with "Death by Chocolate" ice cream instead of just plain old chocolate. So it was doubly deadly. But that's not what caused my heart attack....
40IMGP9559.JPG
The only bad thing about Jaxson's.

If you like ice cream (and are independently wealthy), you should definitely go, if you're in the area. And why might you be in the area? Well, there does just happen to be a pretty good wooden roller coaster about a mile away. Stay tuned....

Awesome! Really glad you guys enjoyed it. And hey, at least there was a Broward Sheriff's Deputy there to help revive you after that heart attack. :-)
