After nearly three successful years on Stetson Drive, Lee's Cream Liqueur -- the pretty-in-pink but adults-only shop selling booze-infused ice cream closes today.
Founder Lee Turner has struck a licensing deal with two as yet un-named companies -- one in India, the other in California -- to produce alcohol-spiked ice cream bars. Although the brand's name is still up in the air, the product is expected to be on grocery store shelves in the next two months.
In appreciation for her many loyal customers, Turner is giving away free ice cream today from noon to 7 pm. Now, that's the spirit!
Turner advises people with gift cards to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a refund. Pretty sweet.
