Seriously though…Wednesdays are the worst.
What is the best ice cream in Oak Lawn, Il?! Who serves the yummiest, tastiest frozen treats?!
These are questions you might ask yourself now that the summer has officially kicked off today with the Summer Solstice. Celebrate the longest day of the year with a visit to the area’s BEST ice cream parlors. Did we miss one? Comment below and let us know your favorite.
- Cupid Candies: known for their delicious homemade chocolates, I opt for a decadent banana split with extra nuts-it combines the sweet and savory with creamy homemade ice cream. And while you’re there, pick up a box of Cupid Turks for a take-home treat. [4707 W. 95th Street Oak Lawn, IL 60453]
- Premo’s Drive-In: as a kid, my dad took us to Premo’s after school for a special soft-serve treat (and maybe even something fried). When it’s time to whet my nostalgia appetite, I order a small chocolate/vanilla swirl cone and a side of french fries from Premo’s. [5540 95th St, Oak Lawn, IL 60453]
- JB’s Gourmet Ice Cream & Ices: this is a tiny spot that’s easy to miss if you’re not familiar with it and trust me, once you try it, you’ll be there all the time. From the juicy Italian Ice to the ultimate Super Sundaes, every batch of ice cream & Italian Ice is homemade and delectable. [6946 W 111th St Ste 4 Worth, IL 60482]
- Rainbow Cones: Is it really necessary for me to tell you why you MUST eat a Rainbow Cone?! Ok fine. You’re either a “biter” or a “licker” when it comes to the infamous treat. Me? I go for it–I’m impatient and hurriedly taste each flavor the moment I’m handed the cone. The more refined eater might take their time to savor each morsel in a layer; to treasure the creamy chocolate, fresh strawberry, savory walnuts & sweet cherries [of Palmer House layer], distinctive pistachio, and juicy orange sherbet. Go ahead, find out if you’re a biter or licker. [9233 S Western Ave Chicago, IL 60643 Beverly]
- La Michoacana Azteca: you have not lived until you’ve taken a giant bite out of a Mango Paletas de Agua. It’s luscious, refreshing, and the perfect way to end a long summer day. If you’re up for something with rich notes of cocoa, order the delicious Chocolate Paletas de Crema. [5437 W. 79th Street, Chicago, IL 60459]
Originally branded as the Scion FR-S, the Toyota 86 is the same vehicle (with updates–see below–in 2017!) but proudly wearing the Toyota name.
The Toyota 86 is Toyota’s only two-door, rear-drive sports car.
I’ve gone down an internet rabbit hole this morning in search for the perfect old school Toyota Celica. First, a brief history of the 1st Generation Toyota Celica:
The first Celica for North America, 1971 ST was powered by 1.9-liter 8R engine. The 1972–1974 models have 2.0-liter 18R-C engines. For 1975–77, the engine for the North American Celica is the 2.2-liter 20R. The Celica GT and LT models were introduced in the US for the 1974 model year. The top-line GT included a 5-speed manual transmission, rocker panel GT stripes, and styled steel wheels with chrome trim rings. The LT was marketed as an economy model.
Keep scrolling to see an ad (from Time Magazine) for the ’71 (1’st Generation) Toyota Celica ST, an episode of Jay Leno’s Garage featuring the ’71 Celica, and my favorite blue Celica GT.
The C-HR will be available in two grades at launch, XLE and XLE Premium, each equipped with a long list of standard premium features that includes 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, supportive bucket seating, 7-inch audio display, and Toyota Safety Sense P™ (TSS-P).
Do I even need to caption this? It’s perfection.
