It’s getting hot out which means it’s time to cool yourself down with some shaved ice or snow cones. They are readily available all over town but perhaps you need some help finding where to go. Wichita By E.B.’s got you covered. I did the research, consulted my Food & Booze Directory and compiled a list of the options for you around Wichita.
Here’s what I uncovered. As usual, if you see one missing, please email me at [email protected].
