How Now Brown Cow?
This past Saturday Travis and I had a date night in Forest Park, which is the next town over from Oak Park. After browsing through Two Fish Art Glass Gallery we went up the street to The Brown Cow Ice Cream Parlor.On our first visit it seemed only appropriate to get the name sake Brown Cow Sundae. Now, the menu describes this sundae as "three scoops of chocolate ice cream topped with hot fudge, peanut butter topping, whipped cream, sprinkles, nuts, and a cherry, served in our signature pail." Well, it turns out that "three scoops" is really more like a PINT of ice cream. Seriously, this was a huge sundae. Travis and I shared it and did our best, but still left probably about a third of the ice cream to melt in the pail. Next time we will know to either order the "mini" or bring friends!
