Alien Sno.

Alien Sno (Closed)

Field review by the editors.

Roswell, New Mexico

An artist named Prudencio painted satisfied extraterrestrials on the walls of this small alien-themed shaved ice stand in 1998. It was closed as of 2010, although not from any lack of patronage by bulb-headed green creatures, if the murals are any indication. It stands in an empty lot less than a block from most of Roswell's other alien attractions, which suggests that its shuttering may be only temporary. When it hits 110 on a summer afternoon in Roswell, strolling tourists need a good brain freeze.
