Our friends Ken and Amy are following their dream (well, Amy’s dream, but Ken is being a good sport) and opening their own ice cream shop – Emack and Bolio’s on Delaware Ave in Albany, next to the fire station and across from Saint James Church. The girls and I went there today with some friends to celebrate their grand opening with them. Mayor Jerry Jennings was there for the ribbon cutting ceremony, and to hop behind the counter to serve up a few cones. Check out the menu on their site – plenty to satisfy your sweet tooth, and smoothies too, with super healthy stuff like echinacea and protein powder. Plus fresh-squeezed lemonade and Raspberry Lime Rickey’s. (That’s a drink. I didn’t know that until this afternoon.) AND music on Friday and Saturday nights in their comfy lounge with the leather sofas. Email Ken to book at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are a couple of snapshots from today. Check out those Rice Crispy Treat and Fruity Pebble waffle cones!! You can even get a scoop of ice cream on top of them. Bring your insulin.
