Lil’ Ice Cream Dude brings the cool to our next Athens Chamber Business After Hours event
That’s right, 9-year-old Athens businessman Beau Shell, better known as Lil’ Ice Cream Dude, will be selling his wares next Thursday at the Business After Hours, presented by the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce at Ashford Manor.
Beau started his business two years ago. When he was 7. Yeah. And word spread fast, because who doesn’t love ice cream, especially when it’s coming from this cute little guy, who has a genuine talent for business? We’re expecially honored to host Beau, because this will also be the big reveal for Beau’s tricked out wheels, sponsored by members of the Chamber who helped contribute to the “wrap” of the vehicle to show all the goodies inside.
But wait, there’s more! We’ll have Barron’s 9-foot fan (around here, it’s referred to as the Big-A** Fan), cold beer and tapas from Taziki’s, the new Mediterranean cafe located in the Bottleworks in Athens. And then there’s what we around Ashford Manor might be looking forward to most of all — DAVE IN THE DUNK TANK.
Yes, we’ll be selling shots at Dave, 3 balls for $5, all to go a local charity. Dave has requested he be in the shade so his lily white skin remains unburned. We just asked him to please *not wear white* and we’ll all be good.
The event is from 5:30-7:30 Thursday, July 17, and is free for all members of the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce. We suspect this is about the coolest event of the summer, and we can’t wait to chill out with Lil’ Ice Cream Dude!
