The other night was "ice cream night" (I fear there will be many such evenings), and celebrations were had at Cindy's Drive-In on Route 202 in Granby. Done up in classic drive-in style, including pink neon signs and classic-looking napkin holders, Cindy's serves up some of the biggest ice cream I've seen yet. Soft serve and hard, the cones are huge and the ice cream is delicious. They've also got hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries, chili cheese fries, and other foodie items (which I haven't tried yet). Eat inside or out or take it away -- there are picnic tables and a few playground toys outside if you want to enjoy the summer weather, but tables and waitress service inside if you'd rather.
I've been there twice -- both in the evening -- once on a clear warm weeknight and once on a cool rainy weekend. There were crowds both night, ranging from toddlers to grandparents, families and singles. I regret not having had my camera, just to try to catch the happy vibes emanating from the kids getting their super-sized ice creams and the couples on dates and the white-haired lady there for ice cream, too.
But hurry and go -- Cindy's is only open through the end of September -- then the season ends and you'll have to wait until next year.
