As I was staring into the black hole that is my gas tank last night, watching 50 bucks fly by faster than my youth, a weary mind wandered back to a happier place: the tropical wonderland known as Bahama Buck's.
It's a new gourmet shaved ice joint that will be taking over all our lives -- in a good way -- this summer. A buddy and I trucked to Denton to try it. (That's about $10 in gas if you're keepin' track at home.)
And it was worth it. Bahama Buck's, with flavors ranging from Passion Fruit to Creme Brulee, will be opening throughout the Metroplex this summer. There will be one in the TCU area and Grapevine for sure and maybe Southlake. It's the kind of place people go back to four and five times the first week. And the kids can throw snowballs at the employees -- really! See more in Thursday's DaFoWo show, which, if you're not watching, well, you should be!
Now that I've left my Colonial wonderland, I'm feeling a bit adrift, and depressed by the constant drumbeat of "higher prices." Everything is costing more! Gas, electricity, pornography ... I mean, technology.
This pervasive feeling of hopelessness is really beginning to chap my behind. So, for sanity's sake, I will try this summer to offset the doom and gloom with some happy news, or something that might make you smile.
