Kevin Patrick Law - July 2021

Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the modern Olympic Games, saw art competitions as integral to the Olympics. At the 1912 Stockholm Games, Coubertin finally secured Olympic fine art competitions. There were categories for architecture, music, painting, sculpture, and literature, but every work had to be inspired by sports. Judges didn’t have to award gold medals if they were disappointed by all the submissions, but in 1912, a gold medal was awarded in every category. As the Olympics exploded into a beloved international event, the fine arts competitions rarely caught people’s attention. There were significant winners, however. John Russell Pope (the architect of the Jefferson Memorial) won a silver in 1932. Other famous participants include Italian sculptor Rembrandt Bugatti, American illustrator Percy Crosby, Irish author Oliver St. John Gogarty, and Dutch painter Isaac Israëls.

The arts competition at the Olympics ended in 1952.

The shop is located in an old train car near the Chamblee railroad tracks, and it’s a great spot to hang out and lick a cone on a hot day. Frosty Caboose carries 36 flavors of ice cream like Koo-Koo-Ka-Chocolate and Bodacious Butterfinger Blast. It even has dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, low-fat, and no-sugar-added options on the menu. There really is something for everyone!

Peachtree Road. It's part of a thriving neighborhood, and if you haven’t been to the area in a while, its vitality might surprise you.

For Kevin’s family, a trip to Frosty Caboose for ice cream is a special

occasion. The shop’s high-quality, super- creamy desserts and train views (which it calls “Thomas the Train on Steroids”) cost more than ice cream at Kroger, but they’re worth the splurge, especially on National Ice Cream Day.
