Like magma and dreams, gelato is a semisolid—neither solid enough to build a house upon nor liquid enough to feed to a thirsty sparrow. Taste glory in a hybrid state with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a five-item punch card for Italian ice, gelato, and smoothies at Repicci's Real Italian Ice (up to a $26.25 value).
Repicci's Real Italian Ice chills palates with a variety of sweet treats served from a laid-back storefront near Piedmont Park. Tongues have the option of introducing themselves to fat- and cholesterol-free spoonfuls of Italian ice or courting one of the many creamy flavors of gelato patiently waiting behind the cooler's glass divide. Patrons can lower the temperature inside their mouths with a regular or large smoothie, such as strawberry Splash or chocolate Iron Man, named after the three-part marathon all pastry chefs must complete every year. Due to its location, Repicci's Real Italian Ice stands as an ideal end destination or stop during a sunny day spent strolling through the park.
