An excessive heat watch is in effect through Sunday, and relief is in order.
Short of forecasting the weather, we did a little research on places that offer summer refreshments — water ice stands, ice cream parlors, frozen yogurt shops and the like.
What we found is this: They’re everywhere and there’s no “best” and, at least as far as we found, no “worst.”
Any place that offers something cold this time of year is worth checking out. At Custard and Cakes Creamery’s walk-up counter, we even felt an icy blast of wind when the server opened the sliding-glass window.
