Down at the corner of Tchoupitoulas and Bordeaux Streets in uptown New Orleans, the red “72” has become a “73”*…a sign of spring as certain as oak pollen, the Mississippi River rising, and buckmoth caterpillars dropping from the sky. Mark your calendars: Hansen’s Sno-Bliz opens for the season on Friday, March 9th at 1:00 pm (according to Hansen’s Facebook page). What could be better than 80-degree late winter weather? 80 degrees and a sno-bliz, of course. A coconut-chocolate for me, thanks…or maybe a cardamom-coconut…or a cherry-lemonade….or the fantastic pink “snobliz” flavor…..
See you there.
*The “73” counts the number of years that Hansen’s has air-conditioned the bellies of a grateful public.
