Hot Cocoa Break
A few days before the storm I noticed this machine in Sylvester and Company (103 Main Street, 725-5012), with a blade that spins luscious-looking hot cocoa around and around. Perhaps its rotating mechanism hypnotized me, because I couldn't get the image out of my head while shoveling snow yesterday. This morning I dragged my older daughter to Main Street with me just to try the cocoa (no need to visit the IGA, since my pre-storm shopping has left me with enough food to last until Christmas Eve). It exceeded my expectations, perhaps because it was consumed in such an amusing environment, with numerous Etch-a-Sketches laid out for our enjoyment and "A Christmas Carol" playing near the coffee thermoses.
