Celebrate National Chocolate Ice Cream Day at Paradis
As if we needed an excuse, National Chocolate Ice Cream Day is this Saturday. Once you’re done reading, this you’ll be rushing to the Montrose Shopping Park to have some. According to Paradis owner Mark Pedersen, the best organic, dark chocolate in the world comes from West Africa. Paradis (2323 Honolulu Ave.) imports it along with chocolate sprinkles from Belgium to produce their decadent No. 1 top seller. Have it in a cup, have it in a cone, or try it in their new frappe made with chocolate ice cream, freshly brewed espresso and topped with whipped cream and Belgian chocolate sprinkles! We are so glad Paradis came to town … aren’t you?
Beer has hit the big time on the restaurant scene and Basin 141 is riding the crest of the wave! There are always fresh brews by the bottle and on tap. New ones to try include Monks Café – Flemish Sour Ale, Great Divide Brewing Co. “Yeti”- Imperial Stout, and epic Brewing Co. Hopulent IPA, a big beer with excessive hops. Of course you’ll need some beautifully presented garlic Parmesan fries to go with that, which are only $3 at Happy Hour! Thanks, Friedman “bros!”
The succulents pictured above are now mine, thanks to the wonderful stand in front of Coffee Bean at our Sunday Harvest Market. Our market continues to thrive above and beyond our expectations – just like these healthy plants. Each one is its own work of art and they are so easy to maintain. They are only $2 each and when you buy five you get two free! This is prime Market time as multitudes of berries, fruits, and veggies abound. Oh, the treasure you will discover here! Thanks for making Montrose your summer shop and dine place! To see what’s new, visit www.shopmontrose.com.
