It might still feel like winter, but there are signs of impending spring on the horizon.

Among them is the re-opening of Babe's Ice Cream, 2264 S. Kinnickinnic Ave., which has announced plans to welcome customers back on Thursday, Feb. 25.

They haven't shared their full deck quite yet, but they did announce that their return will bring some exciting new specialty drinks and shakes. That's in addition to ALL of their offerings from sundaes and cones to vegan treats, ice cream pies and cakes.

Follow them on FacebookTwitter and Instagram for updates and ongoing news.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
