As temperatures climb near the triple-digit mark, icy drinks will be a popular escape.
There are plenty places to get cool drinks locally, including the Elk Grove Boulevard . For the uninitiated, boba (or "bubble") tea is a Taiwanese drink with sweet, tapioca balls at the bottom.
Pictured above is Boba Tea House's multi-flavor Rainbow Slush with boba, and an order of spicy fried calamari.
Elk Grove, can you guess how much this snack cost? Post a comment below with your best estimate (including tax), and the person who guesses closest will win a gift certificate to Boba Tea House for roughly the same amount. A winner will be announced at 9 a.m. Monday, June 18.
