Lake Jordan ice cream boat cooling folks off
LAKE JORDAN, AL (WSFA) - What could make the perfect lake day event better? How about an ice cream pontoon boat that'll come right to you.
"We don't go to the beach or the mountains," said Boomer Strichik. "This is our world. We've been here for 20 years and wanted to bring some excitement to Lake Jordan."
Boomer (aka Boomer T) had a barbecue business for years in the River Region. A few months ago he and his wife decided to retire. Well, kind of retire. He turned an old pontoon boat into Boomer T's Big Green Ice Cream Boat. And if you're hungry for something else, he sells boiled peanuts too!
"The response has been absolutely great. People wave their arms, flag us down, run down their pier." Boomer said.
Here's the cool part. If you're out at Lake Jordan and you don't see Boomer T and his wife Teresa, you can check her Facebook page or call them at 334-546-2430 to find out where they are.
"If you want a good time and something really delicious, come find us." Boomer said.
The Strichik's say they are just getting started. Boomer T says they will sell ice cream and boiled peanuts until September 1 this year and plan to do it again starting May 1 next year.
