New ice cream shop opens in CenPho
By Michele Laudig
Is it any coincidence that the first day the weather forecast shows nothing but three-digit temperatures for the next week, I discover a brand-new ice cream shop? Finding week-old Pink Spot, which just opened its doors next to ZPizza on Thomas, came at the perfect time.
As you'd expect, there's a whole lot of pink in this place -- not pale bubblegum pink, but a deeper shade of Barbie pink. I was impressed by the retro diner chairs upholstered in sparkly hot pink vinyl.
A scoop of chocolate ice cream hit the spot -- and for a "small," it was such a big portion that I saved some of it in my freezer to finish the next day. The menu also had smoothies, shakes, and sundaes.
Pink Spot is located at 49 W. Thomas Rd., and is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. For more info, call 602-265-3889.
