Amy’s had their Trick Olympics today! For those of you non-Austonites, Amy’s is the Austin ice cream place (they’ve expanded to San Antonio and Houston too) where cool is the name of the game. The Trick Olympics give their employees – who often put on a show in the store – a chance to compete for various scooping titles. It was most excellent.
Trying for the “catch it in the mouth” trick.
This is how the mouth trick is supposed to go.
A simultaneous trick flop!
Catching the ice cream.
This is Star, the hula hooper and an Amy’s employee. They’re all very talented.
It’s a messy sport but someone’s gotta do it.
Yes. This man is juggling ice cream and a scoop. He wins at life.
Behind the back and in a cone! (Yum. I love ice cream cones.)
Z. Z. Tap, the other entertainment.
Make no mistake; tapping is serious business, yo.
Team tricks bring out the Tyrannosaurus rex in all of us.
But it’s the pelvic thruuuuust!
Scoopin’ it gansta style.
Audience participation. Also – cutest. dimples. ever.
The tricks get, well, tricksy. It was amazing.
