Napkins and Spoons at the Lemon Ice King

I knew something was up when I was handed a paper napkin and plastic spoon to go with my $1.50 peanut butter ice a few weeks ago. I was actually a bit embarrassed because I had repeatedly forewarned all of the newcomers in my group to bring their own "supplies." and as we exited the school building on the way over even nipped a pack of napkins from the pupil personnel secretary. Everyone thought I was nuts. Turns out, I was told, the place is under new management. However the king himself, Peter Benfaremo, was still there slumped over in his white plastic chair and the ices, especially the peanut butter, are better than ever.... Next maybe we'll even be allowed to mix flavors :)
