What makes this restaurant unique:homemade to order ice cream sandwiches



Tell us about your experience:It was a hot afternoon and I had been hearing about this place so decided to check it out.  The counter was being manned by a couple. Excellent selection of cookies and brownies and you can mix and match.  All the cookies are homemade.  The ice cream comes from Hiland Dairies so it is made in Oklahoma.  I chose a Toffee chocolate chip cookie and a snickerdoodle with a very generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.  $1.99, the best bargain in the whole city of Tulsa. 

When you enter, there is a line and the very nice lady helps you decide about your cookies and then will dip your ice cream of choice.  Then you pay.  The place was spotlessly clean.  The kids that were there were having a good time.  You don't have to be a kid to be a kid. For 20 minutes I was a kid. 

I will definitely be going back with friends who have kids. 

Hey Mr Bread, hope your having a good day.

The job is in Washington - by definition.  If he didn't want to be there, he should not have taken the job.

But then we would have been stuck with his BS around here, too.  It's a dilemma.

Crass politics being played on the backs of poor, scared children. Charles Dickens couldn't write this.



I think he kinda did....didn't make that big a difference on people's conscience then.  Won't change that much here, either  People haven't changed in thousands of years, let alone just a couple hundred.  That 'needle' moves in tiny little fits and starts...

I was suspicious when Inhofe actually made some seemingly rational comments a few days ago about his good buddy, Pruitt.  Something was just way out of whack....
Back to the natural order - Inhofe retracts his original correct statements and goes with his standard fare.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) told lawmakers this week that it abandoned plans to establish an office for Administrator Scott Pruitt in his home town of Tulsa, Okla.

“Although the EPA staff did explore whether office space was available in Tulsa, this possibility was ultimately abandoned,” Troy Lyons, the EPA's associate administrator for congressional affairs, wrote in a Tuesday letter to Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas), the top Democrat on the House Science Committee.

Early on in Pruitt's tenure at the agency, and even before he was confirmed, the agency wanted to rent office space for him in Tulsa, according to Lyons' letter.

Johnson and two other high-ranking Democrats on the panel previously obtained documents showing EPA staff trying to establish the office. Johnson asked about the office in May, saying it would be an unnecessary and ethically questionable expense.

“Establishing a new EPA office in Tulsa may be personally convenient for you, but it seems ethically questionable, professionally unnecessary, and financially unjustified,” Johnson and her colleagues wrote in a letter to Pruitt dated May 1.

Pruitt has been under fire in recent months for various ethics and spending scandals, centered in part around allegations that he has sought to use taxpayer resources for personal gain.

In his first few months on the job, he frequently traveled to Tulsa for business and then stayed at home for the weekend. The EPA’s inspector general is investigating whether the trips were a proper use of agency funds.

Lyons also sent the Democrats a series of emails, some of which the lawmakers appeared to already have.

They show that shortly after Trump's inauguration, Ryan Jackson, who at the time was chief of staff for Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), reached out to EPA staff asking them to research office space in Tulsa that Pruitt could use when he was home. After Pruitt was confirmed by the Senate, Jackson became his chief of staff at EPA.

“Pruitt wants to know when he goes home to Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he can work,” Jackson wrote to James Blizzard, in EPA’s congressional affairs office, on Jan. 30, 2017, when he was still on Inhofe's staff.

Jackson later got more specific about what Pruitt would need.

“Office for him, meeting room, lobby space but that’s largely it I think,” he wrote on Jan. 31, adding that he'll also need a secure compartmented information facility "in the event he is working on spill info or otherwise protected information.

"Of course when the President communicates with the Cabinet those communications are protected so we will need to be able to accommodate that,” he added.

Jackson said Pruitt also would need a secure computer and phone, 24-hour access and a parking garage. He added that he wanted the space to be “consistent with previous Administrators,” saying former EPA head Gina McCarthy had a similar setup in her hometown of Boston when she served during the Obama administration.

Jackson said he didn’t think it was necessary to ask for a provision in EPA’s annual appropriations legislation to fund the office space.

Schumer caved and gave him his wall money months ago to save the Dreamers. Trump refused. He wants to run on the wall for midterms, perhaps even 2020.

 

Back in February Trump punted on a deal on DACA with Schumer after initially agreeing. At Miller's request Trump at the last minute tied the dreamers deal to ending family migration and the visa lottery, which are types of legal immigration for people from disadvantaged countries and have nothing to do with DACA or illegal immigration on the southern border. A deal the Democrats would not agree on. Trump did get the Senate to vote on his deal at the time, but he only got 39 votes. He needed two Democrats to flip, instead 14 Republicans went against him.

Lately Congress has been trying to make that middle ground deal happen around Trump. With the deal Trump would get his wall and border security and in exchange the dreamers would be protected. But that isn't end his goal anymore, if it ever was. Trump wants fewer brown immigrants period. So before Congress could get the new bi-partisan deal done Trump and Sessions upped the pressure on congress with the "no tolerance" policy at the border. Sessions announced this new policy April 6th and it now has led to 6,000 children being separated from their parents. The idea was it would upset Democrats and get them to come back to the table with Trump and roll on legal immigration. But predictably the photos and videos of traumatized kids didn't make this a winning policy for Trump and it has pissed off almost everyone, anyone with any kind of soul at all anyway.

As I've aged, the fact that the interior was an echo chamber drove me nuts.

We did have a lot of leftovers (most of a burger and most of the appetizer). I'm guessing the "real" price of what we ate there was more like $25 if we just bought what we ate/drank completely.

I think it is a much better experience and price point then HopBunz. Seems a bit more upscale and atmosphere makes the prices seem reasonable. Probably a good fit for the area because it's something different and great late night/casual option.



I take the leftovers home most of the time...then usually don't eat them.  But just in case....   I do like the look of that 'covered with stuff' bagel bun.  Lots of chunky grain things on the outside gotta be good!    Their website shows one with a 'skirt' of cheese "frita" around the burger.  I wonder if that is sent to table, too?  That would have to be great! 

Haven't been to HopBunz - guess I won't ever get to....

Late night for us is about 4 pm most days...old people hours.  So maybe will miss the crowd!

These children were just pawns being used by Trump. This was always just about leverage in Congress to pass a bill that not only builds that stupid wall,

Schumer caved and gave him his wall money months ago to save the Dreamers. Trump refused. He wants to run on the wall for midterms, perhaps even 2020.

Zanmai.  It was good, not sure why they couldn't keep it open.  It's an event space now, I know someone that had a wedding reception there. 

They closed because they had a really bad slow summer (was really hot one year). Wish they would've just ate those losses and carried through. Needed better advertising campaign and focus on patio views. Was an excellent date night spot and one of the best views around. Sushi was well priced.

Sounds good.  Sounds a little pricey.  Will try to get there this weekend.
