I hardly recognize Biltmore Fashion Park anymore.
Haagen-Dazs is gone. Now the windows are covered up and adorned with a big sign announcing that Zinburger -- a spinoff of restaurateur Sam Fox's Tucson eatery -- is "coming soon."
But the Republic reports that it's not opening until January of next year.
That's fine and all, but I'm sort of missing the Haagen-Dazs now that it's hovering around 100 outside. They just opened that Mojo Yogurt at the Biltmore, but fro-yo and ice cream are two completely different cravings for me.
