It's around this time of year that I begin to lament to my wife that Kansas City summers are hot. She laughs. Oh, how she laughs. And then she tells me to wait. Because then it gets really hot.
The saving grace of summer is that we've got a bevy of locally made, frozen desserts that can be tackled with spoon, straw or mouth. We've written about a ton of them in this space: the flights of freshness from Fresher Than Fresh Snow Cones, the ice-cream-and-cookie sandwich from Murray's, the paletas from Paleterias Tropicana, and the E-Crush at Hi Hat Coffee. So, how about it, who's got the cure for the summertime heat? Write quickly; it's only going to get hotter.
