This grand opening (7pm-9pm tonight) sounds like a blast. What a neat addition to the local scene!
Can’t wait to try it! Sounds yummy! You go girl!
I love Rhea’s Ice Cream! I went to the opening party and her unique flavors knocked my socks off. Her bacon maple, a must try, left me craving more. The combination of flavors she comes up with are absurdly delicious!
