Has this ice cream hit Rock Bottom?

Yesterday I met up with Chris (that's him with the Mini Sundae below), who I used to work with at Houghton Mifflin College Division before it became Cengage. We used meetinbetweenus to find a good place to meet up and that became Rock Bottom. I have to say, I am not a big fan of chains, and recently I have stopped ordering chicken at restaurants because I find it too dry. This time I was so in the mood for their Chicken Waldorf Salad...if the chicken was bad, I'd eat around it, right. Well, I didn't eat around it. The salad was amazing, as was the chicken. So was our waitress, Susan. She was cheery and helpful, and was right there whenever we needed anything. Granted when we first arrived at noon the place was empty, but I have a feeling she would have been one of those good waitresses no matter how many people were there.

She twisted my arm -- yeah, right -- when she suggested we finish off with a Mini scoop of ice cream in a shot glass. Chris and I shared it. Perfect end to a great meal. And great idea and great size. The mini sundae is a smaller version of their Pint Glass Sundae: "A Rock Bottom Original! Scoops of Starbucks® Mud Pie ice cream, crumbled chocolate wafers, candied walnuts and Stout hot fudge. Topped with whipped cream and a cherry." (from the Rock Bottom Desserts web page). Funny thing is, I hate coffee. I hate coffee flavored anything. But I was so excited about "reporting back" on this adorable sundae, I didn't even read the description. And guess what? The coffee ice cream worked...It balanced off the sweetness of the chocolate wafers and hot fudge. Wait...what? Stout hot fudge? I don't like beer flavored anything either. Man oh man. But hey, didn't notice that either. That was one darn good sunday seeing as it was made of two flavors I don't like and I liked it!!!
