We know how frustrating it is when, instead of enjoying a delicious gelato, all you can think about is how much better it would taste with some grape, lemon, or snozzberry. Orderup Pizzeria/Taqueria/Burgeria, 999 E. Basse in the Lincoln Heights Shopping Center, knows too, and they're giving you a chance to enter your recipe in their "Invent Your Own Gelato" contest, running through March 31. The winning flavor will be prepared at Orderup and placed on the dessert menu for a limited time. Have you always wondered what pineapple and celery would taste like together? Send it in. Feel strongly about honeydew? Let others share that passion. Dying for butterscotch and shrimp? Well, perhaps better to keep that one to yourself. For more information call 824-9600.
You drink'em both up
(And then you feel better)
