We went out to lunch and planned on doing some shopping in Okemos this afternoon. Our restaurant of choice was Gilbert and Blake’s. When we pulled into the parking, we noticed a new deli across the street with a “Grand Opening” banner hanging out front. It’s called State Side Deli. They’re on Okemos Road in the strip mall directly across from Gilbert and Blake’s.
After lunch, we headed cross town to Horrocks. I almost suggested stopping at Ice Cream Joes, so I was looking for it. Ultimately, we didn’t, but as we drove by, I noticed a new name on the side. It’s now called The Uddery Creamery. We didn’t stop, so I don’t know if anything’s changed, but we really liked Ice Cream Joe’s when we stopped in back in the spring.
