We finished off the night with an ice cream sundae at Valpo Velvet Ice Cream (55-57 W. Monroe Street Valparaiso | 219.464.4141). And a root beer float. For some reason I’ve been craving those all summer. The first thing I had in the hospital after Scout was born? A root beer float. I hadn’t had one in years and then the baby was born and BAM! All I can think about are nice, cold root beer floats!

Valpo Velvet makes all of their own ice cream. 50 flavors each week! They scoop them up in their cute ice cream shop AND they sell fresh packages that you can take home for your family to enjoy…if you’re a local. Which is why we just had to eat the whole sundae right there in the shop. The flavors to choose from were wonderful; flavors like Black Raspberry Chip, Blue Moon, Cotton Candy, Banana Chocolate Chip and many more! Valpo Velvet also makes a variety of sandwiches and other frozen and not so frozen treats! We might find ourselves there again…
