summer in the city: sno-beach

Whoever came up with the idea of a sno-cone is genius.

I mean, crushed ice and pure flavored sugar in the form of syrup. What more could you want on a hot summer day?

Following one of our Barton Fridays a few weeks ago, my friends Ashley, Kate, Caroline and I made the trek to Sno-Beach. We were practically melting in the Texas heat, and it was really our only viable option. I think this could go without saying, but when it’s 107 outside, a diet of Sno-Beach becomes necessary to keep your body temperature at a reasonable level.

The ice is crushed perfectly. The syrup generously applied. Refreshment… and maybe a colored tongue for just $2.50.

Similar to my philosophy on Barton Springs, if you live in Austin and haven’t tried Sno-Beach, you are wrong. The loved trailer just celebrated their 20th year in this city, and they make a mean sno-cone. You’ll find them in various part of Austin – namely on Barton Springs or Guadalupe – so you really have no excuse.

If you’re out and about this weekend, I recommend trying one of their awesome flavors. My favorite is tangerine and coconut with fresh lime juice.

Have a great Friday.
