The year-end check-in
Inside New York recently featured an article about Handsome Dan’s. Check out what they had to say:
Almost a year ago, I reviewed then week-old Handsome Dan’s. It was a snow cone candy shop that had just recently outgrown its take-out window location at Blackbird. The owners were young and enthusiastic. A year later, I can say they’ve maintained and multiplied the energy– and the candy.
