Izzy's, Sebastian Joe's, Dairy Queen, and more: Who makes the best root beer float?
Ice cream floats are $3.50 at Lake Harriet, where the seating area overlooks anchored sailboats and passing joggers and cyclists. This was a classic root beer float, with root beer that wasn't overly sweet and ice cream that dissolved almost as quickly as we could eat it. The only problem was technical: The concessions stand didn't have straws. Sure, that might be more eco-friendly, but I prefer attacking a root beer float armed with a spoon and straw for alternating bites of ice cream with sips of root beer.
