last call

If you need one more Rainbow Cone fix before they close for winter, this weekend is your last chance. Give yourself a treat and give them a good fall sendoff.

Tomorrow is also the last farmers market of the season. They'll be at 95th and Longwood for that last visit, with plenty of delicious things.

I plan to enjoy both.
