A GOOD DEAL
Raise a red spoon. It's the 25th anniversary of The Blizzard , that fabulous, whirred, fruit-and-candy-filled ice cream treat invented by Dairy Queen. To celebrate, local stores are offering a buy-one-get-one-for-a-quarter sale on Blizzards. The offer is good through Sunday.
Foodies for Wichita
Wichita was recently named among the "10 most surprising food cities" by the editors of Livability.com, who chose the top 10 from a list of America's 200 most livable cities. Other foodie towns on the list included Boulder, Colo., Kansas City, Mo., and Traverse City, Mich. Among the Wichita restaurants singled out in the article — The Beacon, Chester's Chophouse, Bella Luna, Jack's Coffee Shop, Pho Hot and Da Nang. One minor bummer — the just-released article was clearly reported more than a year ago, as it also cites the now-closed Bella Donna and Piztros as among Wichita's best restaurants, and it calls Harvest Kitchen in the Hyatt by its former name — Southwinds.
Hot dog restaurant Get Franked is moving across the street to 2322 E. Douglas. The restaurant will shut down its current location on May 8, and owners hope to open in the new spot in early June.
