We didn't make it to Mercy Street this weekend. Greg is nursing a sore throat and I'm working on end-of-the-semester papers. However, we did make it out for a stroll to the Water Ice Factory, which is just a few blocks away. Water ice is a local delicacy, not to be confused with slushees, sno-cones, or Italian Ice. It's frozen yet creamy in texture, and in my opinion, tastes best in some kind of tropical fruit flavor, like mango or coconut. Looks like we'll have to do the hard work of testing all the options in our new neighborhood.
