First visit to Brushfire Ice Creamery

I surprised Anthony with a trip today to the new Brushfire Ice Creamery at 22nd and Kolb.  We tried to go there a handful of weeks ago when we had dinner at Brushfire BBQ next door but they were not open yet.

First, we went to Boston Market across the parking lot.  Most of our dinner was in an empty dining room.  It still amazes me how we manage to time our eating to do that as often as it occurs.  (We ate at about 5:00 p.m.)  The food was good as it always is, but it took close to five minutes for an employee to actually take our order (which was unusual, they're really fast most of the time).  The employee who walked the food to our table was super friendly so he gets a gold star.

We walked over to Brushfire Ice Creamery after our dinner at Boston Market.  I had caramel brownie ice cream, Anthony asked the very nice employee to create a milkshake from peanut butter pretzel ice cream and had him add a bunch of peanut butter to his shake.  I had a taste of his, it was really peanut buttery.  My ice cream was wonderful.  I think it was the best ice cream I've ever eaten in Tucson.  They make it from scratch at their store and it's super duper thick.  Amazing.  I'd highly recommend it.

He gets enough napkins every time he eats to kill a forest
