Foot Long Ice Cream!
Sometimes during a show or a conversation with a guest afterward one little phrase burrows into my brain. In the case of our show last March on casino development in the Gorge, that phrase was "foot long ice cream." Cascade Locks Mayor Roger Freeborn touted it as the best treat along highway 84.
So a couple of weekends ago I stopped by for lunch. Turns out it was enough for dinner and breakfast as well! Three of us together could only finish about seven inches. (OK, I confess, we had hamburgers too.)The chocolate tower was served up by Ashley McPhetridge, who has only worked at the East Wind drive-in for six months but was already deferred to by other staff as the softserve star. Yum!
