It was a gorgeous day in the city today, and tomorrow’s supposed to be more of the same!  So make the most of the fine weather, and head over to the Halstead Street Deli (177 N. State Street) to grab a Rainbow Cone for lunch.

The sandwiches there are tasty too, but why not have dessert first? Just think of it… chocolate, pistachio, strawberry and Palmer House (a cherry-nut blend) ice creams, along with a layer of orange sherbet all in one cone.

I know it’s old news that this five-layer thing of beauty, which has been a south side tradition since 1923, is now available downtown.  But I thought you’d appreciate the reminder. I splurged on Rainbow Cone myself recently, and it made my afternoon. I had to share the joy.

You know you want one! I’ll meet you there. :)
