Joe Fields left his corporate job as a radio station promotions manager four years ago in search of a cooler job. He and wife, Kristin, found it in Whipty-Do, a seasonal soft-serve and ice cream stand at 2529 W. U.S. Highway 22/3 in Deerfield Township.
The summertime hangout is most popular for its blue ice cream, which has a cult following, said Joe of Maineville. It’s the same blueberry-flavored treat served up Kings Island. Other favorites are the dip-top cone, the Whipty-Whirl and Flavorburst soft-serve.
The stand is open noon-10 p.m. through August and 4-10 p.m. September-November. Info: 513-774-0200; whipty-do.com.

More than 300 youth gathered in Mason this week for the A.J. Green Youth Football ProCamp.
The Bengals receiver led the two-day coed camp held Wednesday and Thursday at Mason Middle School. Wednesday he blended in throwing passes and joking around with campers. Green kept his message simple with the kids he spoke to and it had little to do with specific football skills.
“Just have fun out here,” he said. “At this age you have no worries in life, so enjoy it.”
Taking two days out of his schedule to enjoy it felt like a no-brainer for Green, who will report along with the rest of the Bengals next week with the first training camp practice July 25.
“I love giving back,” Green said. “No matter what, I didn’t have this growing up so it’s always a privilege to come out here to help other kids who are not as fortunate.”
