Ken made me do it........ :trust:

It's summer (somewhere).
In respect of history, of summers gone by, over decades, in points all over the world (NY, ME, OR, CA, OH, TX, UT, Rome, Munich, couldn't find ice cream in Israel.), I proclaim Friday nights:

Ice Cream Night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In a town, far far away,
These are the rides of the
bikes of Tarrant County.

Their continuing mission to
explore strange new places;
to seek out new ice cream,
to boldly go where no rider
has gone before!

It's the Friday Night Ice Cream Bikes!

We already started last Friday.
Burger Box, Glenview Dr., Richland Hills. 7:15 pm

It's in the northeast corner of Fort Worth - Richland Hills:

Here is the map for Burger Box (address is 7700 Glenview, fudged to get the arrow in the right place - a Denton Don trick).

It is on the SE corner of Glenview (west extension of Pipeline) and Booth-Calloway.



We gotta find better ice cream somewhere (but we keep going back to BB).

I apologize for the diappointment with the ice cream. Next time I see the owner I'll mention that to him.

What about Marble Slab or Cold Stone Creamery? It doesn't get much better than that.

I guess for the good of the "Group" I should sacrific myself and do some Ice Cream Parlor exploration. For the Group of course.

There was a place in North Richland Hills that I used to take my kids too that had great ice cream sundaes. One of those "Trendy" places. The Marble Slab Creamory or something like that. I'll swing by there in the next few days and see if they are still there and digging out those great Sundaes.

There was another one called the "Purple Cow" but I can;t remember exackly where that was right now. On Harwood I think!

I know Southlake has a few also.

But, you'll have a hard time beatin Blue Bell..... Just getting your moneys worth will be the hardest part.

I'll report on my findings as I do the taste test. On the down low of course.

Lucky for me my wife doesn't read this Forum.:mrgreen:

Curtis

Anybody thought about having a build your own sundae ice cream party?

It's not your fault, Ken.
if they need an ice cream consultant, give them my name :trust:

See you Friday?
I will definately tell Curtis about your "expertise" with ice cream. I don't know if I'll be there Friday or not. It's summer, and I don't think that far ahead.

The Burger Box in Richland Hills is located at 7700 Glenview Drive. Maps:

http://www.mapsonus.com/swy.5/dir/mapresults.htm?FUNC=MAP&MEM=5&LO=7700+Glenview,+Richland+hills+TX

http://maps.google.com/maps?tab=wl

Glenview is the same road as Pipeline. The name changes at I820. Wherever you are, take I820 to the Pipeline/Glenview exit just south of 121/I820 interchange. Head west on Glenview and the Burger Box will be on the left just before the first light. We can use the paved parking area between the drive-through lane and Glenview. It is not striped for cars and is large enough to hold 30-40 motorcycles. It is also a long way from the fire ants.

Warning--the light is equipped with a red light camera. The speed limit on Glenview is 30mph and the area is heavily patrolled.

Hulen and 121. Was there last Sunday. Ice cream is okay, not great.

Well, yes, but I'm not going to spill the beans until he's ready ;)

Y'all need to ride up here to Denton and try Beth Marie's Old Fashioned Ice Cream on the Courthouse Square. They make their own ice cream on site and it is GOOD! They have lots of flavors too...

Another thumbs up to Beth Maries in Denton on the south side of the square. If you are ever eating at Babe's in Sanger or having a hot ride, they also have a store on the south side of the town Square in Sanger, just around the corner from Babe's.

I'd love to meet y'all at the Burger Box, but I'm not up to the stress of the ride down from Denton on a Friday night. It's quite an obstacle course out there on the freeways at this time of day/week. :eek2:

A Sunday ice cream break sounds pretty good though...

I kind of like the Burger Box. The burger was good and the ice cream was good.

I had Rocky Road ice cream. Does that mean I should have ridden the KLR tonight?:eek2:

Wow, if you'll make this a regular thing, I guess we'll have a Sat. morning ride to the gym to workout together? :doh:

Actually, I had ice cream tonight too.

I think we are looking to do a little riding to find the best ice cream in North Texas. Denton has been proposed, you can join us there.

Re: Friday Night Ice Cream Bikes, 6/8 7:15 PM

Have you folks thought of maybe riding out to Wise County for Ice Cream?
After all, your not gathering until after 7pm, so traffic will have subsided quite a bit by then.

We have a nice Dairy Queen in Rhome, Decatur, and Bridgeport. All nice rides through the country if you know how to go. Especially after the Rock Trucks get off the roads.

Course there is a Braums in Decatur as well. But, the DQ is the biker hangout.

That would gove Texas Shadow a good country ride home from Wise County.

On second thought if we went to Wise County for Ice Cream it wouldn't be a Tarrant County ride then, would it?

Just thinking out loud.:giveup:

Curtis

Forgot to add that with some luck I may have a guest meet us. Met this guy named James yesterday, a fairly new rider with all the right stuff, looking for some riding people. Hope the weather co operates so I won't have to work.

I'll be at BB tomorrow night, but there's a chance I may have to cage it. I was hit in the knee by a UFO on I-820 on the way home tonight. Knee's swollen up and ouchy.

They sure are. Also across the street from the ice cream parlor is the old county court house. It's surrounded by old pecan trees and there's lots of benches to sit on.

That sounds picturesque :) I'll have the camera on me. I might head up there from Kaneman's gathering Sunday.

Hmmm.... new bike ride theme this summer: The Hunt for Ice Cream. Episode One: Denton's Finest.

Sorry you hurt your knee. Hope it gets to feeling better. According to the weather forecast, we might need pontoons on our bikes tomorrow.

I'm not too confident in the weather forecasts these days and since it's on the way home for me, I'll be there rain or shine.

Denton is on my list of courthouses to get pics of. If the weather is good Sunday & I can get some mowing done, I'll try to get up there...
Give me a call Sunday morning and we'll see what's cooking. I can meet you somewhere along I-35. I'll be up that way anyway (Kaneman's place). We can kick off Summer 2007 Hunt for Ice Cream
(and courthouses! ;)

It's an open invite. :)

I was sprinkled on the morning of the last two days, and beat the storm this am with lightening in my rear mirrors. I don't think it will bother me much tomorrow (providing my knee is okay; otherwise I may have to cage it, but then..... )

Maybe we should change the title to just "Friday Night Ice Cream Bikes, 7:15 pm" ? No date associated, then we can post date and place as we approach Friday.
