Andy's Igloo

In the heart of sunny Florida in the city of Winter Haven, there is a little place called "Andy's Igloo" or formally "Andy's Drive-in Restaurant." It has an eat-in restaurant, a drive-up spot/window for take-out and another window dedicated solely to delicious ice-cream treats.We met our friends Justin and Daniela there Friday of the 4th of July weekend. Justin and Daniela were with us in Southeast Asia for a while and they're some of our favorite people to hang out with. Daniela's hometown is Winter Haven and I grew up not far from there. We've each introduced our husbands to Andy's since:)I honestly have no idea how long Andy's has been there, but from the look of the neon lights on the sign, and the look of the place in general, I'd say at least since the 60's.
I fully expect Mater and Luigi to pull up every time we go there and say, "Howdy! Welcome to Radiator Springs!" It's that kind of a place. Except it's always packed.
It has a basic menu of burgers, hot dogs, and fried foods....but the reason we go there is undoubtedly for the milk-shakes. YUUUUUUUUMMMMMMM!!!! They can mix any and every kind of milkshake. I get the strawberry-banana everytime. Daniela got some sort of chocolate something, but she ordered it like a pro and I could tell she had done it dozens of times before. She knows. If any of you find yourselves in these parts, stop on by Andy's Igloo then you'll know!

Andy's...oh yeah...that's what I'm talkin bout!! That was something I totally looked forward to when I had Aaron & Hannah (they were born in Winter Haven)...it was my "push prize". Well, I looked forward to having them too, but the shake took a close 2nd! ;) Unfortunately, we had Stuart in Lakeland so I had to wait for my "prize"...but it was still highly anticipated!
