The Original Kitchen Sink: famous sign outside of Jaxson's is also the selling face of this historic Ice Cream Parlor. After finding out that our flights would be arriving and departing within a few hours of each other, Mark (Travelman727) and I (Africancrab) decided we would meet in Fort Lauderdale before my flight out on Aug 24th since I would not be making it to the Miami meet-up that evening. Our host Joanne (Flyinhigh) suggested Jaxson's as a great place to meet since it is just a few minutes away from Fort Lauderdale airport. Jaxson's is well known in Dania Beach as the "Brain Freeze Heaven" following a news paper publication about this famous location with it's kitschy decor and more than 60 flavours of ice cream.
When Mark (travelman727) arrived from the airport with Robert (rvegas), Joanne (Flyinhigh) and I were already at Jaxson's, we had in fact taken more than a dozen photos and decided to go find a seat inside: the heat outside was rather prickly. When we were all seated, we decided to make the orders, Mark asked what Jaxson's was famous for, Joanne replied "Ice Cream" Mark and Robert proceeded to order ice cream, Joanne and I were hungry for food, so she decided she would order a hot dog meal (comes with pickles, fries and onions, she added a side order of chillies.
