AN ICE CREAM SOCIAL FOR THE AGES

It was a great night celebrating community at Dads Slot Cars last night. Races were had, friends were made, ice cream was ate.

One of my favorite things about Dad’s, which I was reminiscing with my friend Sean Oskerka 3rd Ward, is the ”15 minutes of racing per A” reward. For every β€œA” that kids bring home, they get 15 minutes of free racing.

It’s small and simple, but it’s a tradition that Dad’s carries on to this day. It’s things like this that build community, and why I hope we can all commit to stop into Dad’s from time to time, at least to grab some ice cream.

Stop by over the weekend, as they’re still our restaurant of the week through Monday.

Jet City is a special place.
