Success. I found my snow cone stand. I had to drive 30 miles, but it was totally worth it. I thought I remembered there being a snow cone place (Hawaiian Shaved Ice, to be exact) at the outlet mall nearby... and I was right. It was still there. And it was oh-so-delicious. I decided on strawberry... with cream of course. It was perfect.
And while I was at the outlets... Banana Republic just happened to be having a ridiculous 4th of July sale. Purely coincidental, I'm sure.
