Now that temps are touching the 90-degree mark, it's time to think about snowballs, New Orleans' smooth, delicious, and altogether superior alternative to snow cones.
Fleur de Lis Flavors,
the excellent snowball purveyor at the Nashville Farmers' Market
downtown, is today's Big Deal
. Get a $10 gift certificate for just $5 bucks.
We've been big fans of Fleur de Lis since they opened at the Farmers' Market two years ago, and like all Farmers' Market businesses, they had to shut down for months after last year's flood. It's nice to know that this year, they'll be a cool oasis all summer long.
(They also have a mobile unit that heads to summer events like this past weekend's TACA crafts fair. Follow them on Facebook or Twitter to see where they'll be popping up next.)
