As the weather heats up, my soul cries for ice cream (despite being lactose intolerant) and I eat it almost every day during the warm, southern months.
Following my graduation last Friday, I wanted ice cream due to the lackluster dessert offerings at McCormick and Schmicks. So, I typed in "ice cream" into the GPS and we ended up at Pop's Old Fashioned Ice Cream in Old Towne Alexandria. The atmosphere is definitely old school, nostalgic, 1950s-ish and I was smitten.
So, if you're every wandering around Old Towne, I encourage you to stop into Pop's Old Fashioned Ice Cream because ice cream is love, at least in the summer. You can find their nostalgic little shop at 109 King St in Alexandria, Virginia.
