Sarah Goes To Full Tilt.

Take your kids or at least the kid in you to Full Tilt Ice Cream in Columbia City. Go for the ice cream. Stay for the arcade games. Pac Man beckons you into the store.  Pin ball machines line the wall behind the counter.  If you forget your quarters there’s a change machine in the back. I can’t say the vegan selections sparked my curiosity on this outing, but it’s nice to know there are options. I went for mint chip in a waffle cone. Bonus: there is a malt ball nested at the base! The ice cream is dense, creamy, and not too sweet. Any hint of summer is most likely still months away, but a few hours at the arcade reliving your glory days of Donkey Kong, Street Fighter II, and pin ball could bring you some glee in this sun forgotten city.
