Ice cream
vendors delight
Art Fair crowd

By JENNIFER MILLER
Daily staff writer
What goes best with\a hot, drippy
summer day? Ice cream, of course.
And during the Art Fair the milling
crowds storm the local ice cream
parlors.
Ice cream lovers can expect a long
wait in line during Fair days for those
mint chocolate chip or fudge ripple'
cones. "It's-very hectic," said Olga
Lotz, co-owner of the Baskin Robbins 31
Flavor Ice Cream Store on S. Univer-
sity. "There's a line of people all day
long," Lotz said.
LAST SUMMER, Miller Farms Ice
Cream Parlour & Restaurant on S.
University sold 14,000 ice cream cones
in four days, and owner Jeff Boudin ex-
pects this year to be no different. "We
,had to hire an extra eight or nine,
people" this summer to accommodate
the crowds in addition to planning a;
sidewalk cafe, Boudin said.
Art Fair browsers won't have to go

far to find their favorite summer treat.
Baskin Robbins will operate an extra
stand on Main Street, according to
District Manager Don Martinson. The
Sweetwater Cafe (formerly Mountain
High Ice Cream Parlor) on Washington
St., will also add sidewalk tables and
open a. booth in front of the Michigan
Union.
"WE DO FIVE times the business
than normal" during the Art Fair,
proprietor Sally Kelley said. The
Sweetwater Cafe caters to the natural
food-loving crowd. The favorite flavor,
Kelley said, is the Swiss Chocolate
Almond - the almonds are dipped in
chocolate.
Another bigfavorite on campus is the
famed Haagen-Dazs ice cream. The
Sweetwater carries a full line of the
luscious stuff, and so does Jason's San-
dwich & Ice Cream Cafe on State St.
Campus area ice cream vendors say
thoy hope.for hot and humid weather to
increase lusiness even more. "I expect
to havea great art fair," Lotz said.

YOU CAN GET ANYTHING you want (in terms of ice cream, of course) at
the Miller Farms Ice Cream Parlor. For those hot and hectic Art Fair days
there's nothing like a double scoop of your favorite flavor in the old-
fashioned ice cream parlor atmosphere of Miller's.

Futuristic arcade opens
By ANN MARIE FAZIO
Daily staff writer
Have you ever wanted to go rafting
down white water rapids? Or dodge
asteroids while chasing space mon-
sters?
These and other dreams of yours may
now come true with today's opening of
the Simulation Station, on 500 E. Liber-
ty.
THE NEW futuristic arcade consists
of 60 video game machines, according
to one of the station's principal owners,
Gary Kughn. The main attraction,
however, is an audio-visual-motion
simulator called Amaze N' Blue.
The simulator holds 12 people who,
for three and one half minutes, watch a
16 millimeter film of one of several
"thrilling activities", including a grand
prix race and a roller coaster ride while
the machine "pitches and rolls" in syn-
chronization to the sounds of the ac-
tivity, all for $1.50.
The station is lit by many neon lights
which illuminate the clean, brightly-
colored fixtures. This decor was
designed, Kughn said, to "enhance the
overall environment" which, he adds,
is "quite beautiful."
FOOD, BEVERAGES, and smoking
are not permitted because they
"deteriorate the appearance."
Kughn said he wants "to present a
well-kept facility" which will bring in a
"nice cross-section of people." He ad-
ded that the arcade will be catering to
families.
He says he wants to defy the image of THIS MAY LOOK like a left over prop from a James Bond movie but it isn't. It's jus
an arcade as a dimly-lit area, con- newest video game center in Ann Arbor, the Simulation Station. This particular ga
