The 1604/Babcock area is about to get a little more gregarious. Jody and Steve Newman, the husband-and-wife team behind The Friendly Spot, Alamo Street Eat Bar and B&D Ice House, have purchased Hills & Dales Ice House, the 50-year-old institution that's a haven for both bikers and beer fans.

Though a few tweaks are still in the works, the Newman's are keeping the vibe of the place, which sits at 15403 White Fawn Drive on a 3/4 acre tract of land, intact.

"We heard a rumor that it was for sale so we approached the owner ... we're only the third owners ever," Jody Newman said over the phone. "We want to reimagine it and still haven't decided on all improvements, but we want to keep it Hills & Dales. It's got a soul."

The barn-style edifice is complete with  a side patio deck, and large rear parking.
