Ice Cream Beer Floats at The Surly Goat

McConnell’s Ice Cream Beer Floats at The Surly Goat Bar in West Hollywood.

I try not to book food events two days in a row, but how can I resist a Beer Float tasting? It sounded good to me, and I don’t even drink alcohol!  Eboni Booth came as my designated drinker for a special Happy Hour at The Surly Goat starring McConnell’s Ice Cream.



Still digesting my BBQ Dinner from the night before (plus the entire cantaloupe I ate earlier in the day) so I stick to just one glass.


We head outside, where the lighting is better for food photography.



Eboni sips on a “Naughty and Nice” Float…


…and I thoroughly enjoyed my Vanilla Bean, Turkish Coffee, Sweet Cream, and Dark Chocolate Orange.



Back home, all my stomach could handle was miso + grapes.

Speaking of tummies, thank you so much for all your sweetness with the bodyheart shoot. My infertility issues aren’t something I’ve ever shared publicly until recently – though I did blog (anonymously) about my process for the now defunct Mom Logic years ago. I hope that my history continues to help those who are struggling and confused. Life can be so utterly painful and unfair, but also unbelievably generous and amazing.

I mean, beer floats, people. Beer floats.

    Thank you for being brave and sharing your struggles.
    I was just talking to someone else yesterday about wishing topics like infertility weren’t so taboo. I know you know this, but you’re not alone. Lots of love to you.

    For every person you KNOW you are helping there are countless others you are helping that will never meet, or even hear about. Your bravery and transparency in talking about eating disorders, infertility, grief and rejection is honorable. Those are not easy topics to tackle. You are doing great work and the fact that you are not afraid to “go there” is beyond admirable!

    And of course you talk about your happy times, too. Always adding in a dose of humor 🙂

    Life is a crazy mix of ups and downs and navigating it all is an adventure, for sure.

    Lynn, I read everyday but rarely comment. I clicked over Mom Logic and read every one of your post. I can’t imagine how hard it was to write about what you were going through, the ridiculous comments sure didn’t help. I have been through every test and emotion you talked about. Please know you are helping so many, and we can all help each other by sharing our knowledge and experiences. *hugs*

    My head is spinning right now at the inspirations of this post. I think that as bloggers we all have our issues with regards to our need for anonymity as well as the drive to share. Its all good. And these photos make me very hungry right now!
