Revolution Ice Cream opens shop in Seminole Heights

Revolution Ice Cream, which found a following in Brandon for non-traditional flavors and ingredients such as chocolate habanero, chardonnay caramel, yam and bacon, opened a second location in Tampa this week at 6701 N Florida Ave.

The Brandon shop serves up rotating "adult flavors" such as white Russian in addition to its permanent menu of house-made flavors like banana pudding and cinnamon roll. The Brandon store opened in 2013. The new shop's hours are listed as noon to 11 p.m.

The new Seminole Heights location is in the Graham Building, a single story strip of storefronts just south of Sligh Avenue that formerly housed a barber shop and pawn shop, and recently underwent a major renovation that included a new brick facade.

Also set to open in the Graham Building is Seminole Heights City Wine Bar, a second location of owner Jayme Kosar's Ybor City Wine Bar that opened on Seventh Avenue in 2012.

    To Waste Management, the nation's largest handler of garbage, the liquid that winds up at the bottom of a landfill is called "leachate," and it can safely be disposed of in a well that's 4,200 feet deep.

    Three samples that were displayed by Jackson County NAACP President Ronstance Pittman at a public meeting on Waste Management's deep well injection proposal. The sample on the left is full of leachate from the Jackson County landfill, the stuff that would be injected into the well. The sample on the right shows leachate after it's been treated at a wastewater treatment plant. The one in the middle is tap water.
