Which is it and why?
'Ice House' seems to be a uniquely Texas phenomenon.
Who you calling fat? I'm 219 and you are more than that!
Looks like someone already voted for you...
That was me, I always vote for myself.
it is , and we're darn proud of it too !!
we had a Lone Star Ice House at the end of our street .
i used to go by and drop off empty " Big Red " , and " Hippo " soda water bottles , for a nickle each ...
just enough money for my "Bazooka Joe " bubble gum fix ...
... i still call 'em an ICE HOUSE ...
Corner store. That is what I grew up hearing it called. Interestingly, my son calls it by the name of the actual store each time. He likes to be specific I guess.
Ice house? You kidding me? Every ice house I've ever seen was a bar. Usually a very casual bar. Never heard a convenience store referred to as an "ice house."
... and you call yourself a Texan ? ...
oh waitaminute ,
you're one of those guys from " Wacko " ...
i guess that explains it .
I voted for Thor is fat and old.
In a world of uncertainty........
Where convenience stores are icehouses, and corner stores are 7-11s, it's nice to know there are some truths that are self evident and universal.
Seriously?! Lived my whole life here and never heard a corner store called an "ice house" but regularly see self-labeled "Ice Houses" that are bars. This is surprising to me.
i call it the gas station
...I thought ice house was a brand of beer?
I call it "WaWa"
I grew up in southern Louisiana, we called 'em all "seven 'leven"....never have heard one referred to as an "ice house"???
I usually call it by its name. For example I will say "I am going to the Mac's" or "I am going to the Hobo".
An ice house is where you keep ice for the summer. Although I don't know of anybody who uses one any more. We have something called "refrigerators" up here now
Hehehe Ice House.
"Great southern land"...beouw beouwwwww...
"Tell me, what can I do? Electric Blue"
and many other hits!
