Posted by Aubrey Jax / October 15, 2014

ice creamIf you play your cards right (that's not a pun - vote as you wish), this might be the fall election that packs on the calories you need to survive the winter ahead.

The democraclicious deal is being offer by Sweet Olenka's at 1050 Queen St. West and 2790 Lakeshore Blvd West today and Thursday only, so you'd better hit the polls quick (don't forget to snap a sweaty pic while you're making your last minute decisions). Why scream for ice cream when you can vote for it?
