It's always fun when Amarillo gets a place that is cool and unique.  A place that you can find in the bigger cities.

For us, that was rolled ice cream.  Rolled ice cream was available in the bigger cities and it was a cool treat.  Amarillo finally had a few places open up that made the cool rolled ice cream in 2018.

Rolled Ice Cream is where they take some cream and pour it over a special frozen plate, then they add the other ingredients like cookies, fruit, etc.  They mix them together and keep flattening them over the plate until it is mixed and then frozen.  Once it is frozen they scrape it off the plate into rolls, put it in a cup and top it with your choice of toppings. It is a delicious treat.

Sweet Charlie's is a rolled ice cream shop located in Townsquare Village.  It's been open since August 11, 2018.

However, as of late, it seems that Sweet Charlie's is closed. As in closed for good.  Looking through reviews, the rolled ice cream shop would be closed during their posted hours.  Patrons would stop by 2 hours before closing and the lights would be turned off.  Some ordered online only to find when they got to the shop, it was closed, and were unable to get their ice cream or a refund.

Multiple people have said that they were told by workers that the store was officially closing.

A place that is regularly posted on social media, shows its last post on November 2, 2022.

As of this time, nothing on the shop doors or their social media pages or online states that they are closed for good.

We reached out to Sweet Charlie's to get a confirmation on the odd hours or if they are indeed officially closed.  At the time of posting, we had yet to receive a response.  We will continue to keep you updated on what is going on if we receive a response.

Check Out The Original Names For These Amarillo Streets

It's hard to imagine these well-known Amarillo streets as any other name. Try to imagine giving directions to someone while using their original names. Gets tricky, doesn't it?

The new names (that we currently know them by) came mostly from associates of Henry Luckett, who drew the first map of the area. When this took place exactly, records do not show, but the street name revamp is covered extensively in 'Old Town Amarillo' by Judge John Crudgington, published in the Plains Historical Review in 1957.
