Sunday, Sept. 25 was the Miami Dolphins first home game of the 2016 NFL season. And the Post captured Fins’ fans tailgating like crazy at Hard Rock Stadium. Fans decked out in total Dolphins gear from orange hair to full Gorilla masks and more.
The heat is driving people to find some source of refreshment such as a bowl of ice cream. So why not try the best? One South Florida ice cream parlor was named one of the best spots for homemade ice cream.
Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlor and Restaurant in Dania Beach was listed among Thrillist‘s list of the Best Old-School, Homemade Ice Cream Shops in the U.S. The restaurant, which is located on S Federal Highway, is known for its “kitschy memorabilia” and is called “the kind of place where you eat you ice cream at a proper table.”
According to Thrillist, checking out this ice cream spot is imperative for people in the South Florida area. “Up front, you’ll see a kitschy souvenir shop full of candy and Styrofoam barber shop hats, and the dining room’s done up with enough license plates and other bric-a-brac to make an old TGI Friday’s blush,” the site stated.
“The ice cream menu is full of sundaes that will make your teeth hurt just reading about them, but the king of them all is the Kitchen Sink (yes, it’s served in a sink), which is made from whatever the hell the people in the back feel like throwing in a sundae before charging $13.95 per person (minimum four people). You’ll need everyone.”
Henrietta de Hoernle, known as Rita to her bridge friends and ‘The Countess’ throughout Palm Beach County, died Friday in hospice care at a hospital in her adopted hometown of Boca Raton, the Glick Family Funeral home confirmed Sunday. Funeral arrangements are pending for the woman whose 100th birthday was feted by the city with “Countess Appreciation Day.”
When Hoernle turned 100 years old in 2012, she estimated she had donated more than $40 million to her chosen causes since she and her late husband, Adolph, moved to South Florida in 1981.
We recall our interview with The Countess when she turned 100. Here is an excerpt from the 2012 interview:
Palm Beach Post’s Barbara Marshall: “What do you hope people remember about you?”
Henrietta de Hoernle: That I was a generous person, that I loved people and that I was willing to help.
What really gets my goat is seeing people having yachts, big apartments, chauffeurs and limousines and all that. That money could have been spent more wisely on people who need it, especially now.
There is a feeling that’s indescribable when someone comes up to you and says, “you saved my daughter,” “you saved my son.” People stop me in the streets and say, “you do such wonderful work.”
A few members of the mostly teenage Australian band 5 Seconds of Summerwas spotted in Delray Beach today. Doing what? Well, getting their driver’s license at the Palm Beach County Tax Collector’s office, of course! According to tweet, Bassist Calum Hood and guitarist Michael Clifford passed the test on the first try!
