Jaxson’s Ice Cream celebrates 55 years, teams with National Deli to help kids
South Florida readers, if there is one thing you must do this weekend, it’s get yourself and your family to Jaxson’s Ice Cream Parlour for its 55th Anniversary Celebration, Saturday, Nov. 5, 7-10 pm.
I remember the first time I went to Jaxson’s as a kid. Relatives thought it was the best place ever, with its old-timey look and feel and delicious ice cream and sandwiches. I ordered a sundae and couldn’t finish it — it was heaven but so huge!
Jaxson’s is a fixture in South Florida, for sure, and to celebrate 55 years, the National Deli food truck and Nat Deliman character will be there for the hot dog eating contest. (Contestants have been chosen to participate in the contest, and one will win a 42″ flat-screen TV.) Go for the live entertainment, silent auction and great eats.
The best part is Jaxson’s and National Deli will donate all proceeds from the event to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital (a place near Nat Deliman’s heart — he visits the kids there sometimes!).
National Deli all-beef hot dogs, mustard and other tasty items are now available at more than 200 Publix locations throughout South Florida.
Want to win a $10 Publix gift card to buy your own National Deli hot dogs? Please comment with how you like to eat your hot dogs. Have you ever won a hot dog eating contest?
