My local ice cream frozen custard place is featured on the American Food Roots website. Make sure you watch the video as well as read the short article.
P1050603 - Ms Olvera, Ms Allen, and kids at DG
Dairy Godmother is something of a local institution in Alexandria, and especially here in my neighborhood of Del Ray. The place has gained a wide reputation in recent years, with visits from President Obama and his daughters and mentions in various newspapers and magazines. In fact, the seat of one chair has been painted with the inscription, "President Obama sat here."

And here is a link to the American Food Roots site:

UPDATE: This photo was taken two years ago, when these kids were in the third grade and being rewarded with frozen treats for excellent work in multiplication. I just wanted to add that the kids featured in the picture graduated from elementary school this week! (My son is the one in the green plaid shirt. That's Ms. Olvera, left, and Ms. Allen with them.) They all still love the Dairy Godmother.
