Las Vegas: Ghirardelli Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor

Down an alley, between Harrah’s and The Imperial Palace is the Ghirardelli Chocolate shop.   When I was there a very good 70’s rock cover band was playing Billy Joel and Elton John on the outside stage next door. 

This is an old fashion ice cream parlor.  You can belly up to the counter and they will make you a hot fudge sundae, Ghirardelli Vegas style, or shop around the store from the entire line of Ghirardelli products.

I still like the "squares" sold everywhere now, but seemingly more authentic when purchased from the store itself.
Making a new friend

Squares: Dark Chocolate with Mint and Milk Chocolate with Caramel are terrific and now part of a 15 flavor family of squares.

This may not be Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco but if you find this place at the end of the alley,  it is a great throwback.

Have fun (like I did).
