Blue Bell Celebrates Big in Houston

Looking for something unique to do this weekend? (Yes, Amy, this is for you!) Blue Bell Ice Creamery is celebrating its 100th anniversary by visiting Houston. The Houston Chronicle has a great write-up on this in today's paper in "Blue Bell's 100th-birthday Celebration Coming to Houston."

Here's a shorter teaser from The Chronicle: "To celebrate its 100th anniversary, a chocolate-colored 18-wheeler and other vehicles have been touring the country as a mobile museum. The caravan will park at Bayou Bend Collection Saturday and Sunday.

After the lesson is done, reward yourself with a free serving of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream, still the company's best-selling flavor, in a 100th-anniversary cup. If your ice cream palate runs to more gussied-up treats, celebrate with one of the two specialty flavors Blue Bell has developed to fete itself." Check out the link above to the full article & add this to your calendar.

Where: Bayou Bend Collection at 1 Westcott
When: 10 a.m.-5 pm Saturday and 1-5 pm Sunday
Why: You scream. I scream. We all scream for ice cream.

Until the next nap time...
