    Say you’ve been out for the evening, night school, hobby, meeting, kid’s event, community meeting sort of thing. You’re on your way home well after dinner time say 9pm or later and think gee some ice cream sounds nice! Where would you head to satisfy that late evening so glad I made it through [boring event] ice cream? Admittedly in my previous neighborhood I might have snuck in McDonalds for a $1 sundae, but I lived by the freeway so there were close quick options. After 3 years on the peninsula I haven’t quite figured out where to pop off to for that late evening ice cream. :) My sweet tooth is why I definitely don’t keep it in the house on the regular!

    Might be cutting it close if “after 9:00pm” is close to an hour or so after, but Full Tilt lists a 10:00pm closing time, Mon-Sat (9:00-Sun) on their website.

    Elliott Bay Brewery has a rootbeer float on its menu. I don’t know their full dessert menu (as it’s not on their website), but I’d guess there is a sundae or at least they’d give you the ice cream, if you don’t want the float. I do highly recommend the float though. :) The ice cream is actually made by Husky Deli, using their no doubt stout. They’re open until midnight (11 on Sundays).

    Luna Park Café is open until 10 and has really yummy milkshakes, and they also have ice cream sundaes.

    Of course, there’s always ice cream from the many 24 hour grocery stores in the area. Not as nice as somebody serving it to you, but it’s an option.

    I’ll admit this is a “little” white trash, but there is nothing. And I mean NOTHING, like a sourdough jack and oreo milkshake.

    Nothing like the guilt of waking up in the morning with a SDJ wrapper and an empty shake on the nightstand.*

    Extra miles today on the run kids!

    *Twice a year max. I promise.

    Yum!! I’m taking note of these suggestions! I wish there was something between the bridge pane High Point but I’ll have to consider looping around for one of these other choices. Just started taking a class one night a week at UW until 9pm, always have that hankering for a treat on my way home. Might just have to swing by Wallingford Dicks for a milkshake…. If I remember cash!

    Yes, to JanS post # 3- DQ blizzard. However, they don’t ‘blend’ the m&m’s as much as they did when I was young. now, there are large pieces of M&ms in the blizzard, vs. my favorite memories of my youth when there were many minuscule pieces of m&m’s well dispersed throughout the blizzard. I’ve asked for extra ‘shredding of my m&m’s’ in my 2 X yearly blizzard. (I’m very picky).

    I wish we had a Dilettante’s or something similar in WS where you could go get fancy chocolate / other desserts late at night. I’ve mentioned on WSB forum blogs before (along with some other similar opinions) that WS is lacking in that arena. I used to wait tables at a fancy coffee/ fancy dessert / late night place 20+ years ago in my hometown.

    “oh I crave for the days of the herfys burgers”

    Oh my gosh! Herfy’s on Evergeen Way near Everett was my favorite as a kid. The Hefty Burger was my fav.

    Would someone confirm that the QA Dicks was originally a Herfs or am I crazy?

    tricky, if you aren’t in a particular hurry to get Home after class, and don’t mind hanging out a little longer in the U-District, the Full Tilt there is open even *later* than White Center:

    Smitty, you may be right on that.

    It seems like it always been a Dick’s, but it has that “look” of a Herfy’s, or other burger joint. And giving it more thought, it seems there is a vague memory way in the back of my head of when Dick’s moved in there, and when it was something else before. Plus, as far as I know, it’s unique in being the only one with indoor seating. Although I supposes the newest one they opened just a few years ago may offer sit-down as well

    Oh, this is SO cool!

    Smitty, I get to tell you that you are (presumably) crazy! ;-)

    Dick’s QA opened in 1974:

    And Parcel Viewer shows the building openeing that same year:

    http://info.kingcounty.gov/Assessor/eRealProperty/Dashboard.aspx?ParcelNbr=1988200025

    So, unless Herfy’s had a very short stint in that building, or they occupied that site in a previous building that was there…..

    (Oh, and it looks like all Dick’s locations have ATM’s)

    I’d say “Welcome to the Club”, Smitty, but I’ve graduated from that Club, and advanced to the “Totally Lost it Club”!

    I’m pretty sure the Jack-in-the-Box in the Admiral District used to be a Herfy’s.

    And, the MJ Thriftway is open until midnight …
