CocoAndré Chocolatier now has frozen treats. The chocolate shop offers MaxFrut paletas, which contain 70-130 calories when ordered plain. Or they can be dipped in chocolate, and who cares how many calories that has?

Norma’s Cafe now offers boxed meals to feed six-eight people. The boxes come with an assortment of brisket sliders, chicken tenders, side dishes and a whole meringue pie for $50. The first 45 people who order the boxed meals will receive a Norma’s insulated reusable bag.
