Cool Mess, Hot Idea:

At my core I’m a city girl and take any opportunity to bring my family in for a trip, no matter how quick it may be.  Last weekend we decided to head over to the UES to check out all the Cool Mess hype.  After seeing friends’ photos on Instagram, and not really knowing what it was, except that involved ice cream, we tested it …
