Reddy Ice

The mark of a civilized society is, according to some, ice. Ice preserves food, keeps swelling down and makes cocktails better. (OK, you neat drinkers, cut us some slack.) Reddy Ice makes and delivers those bags of ice that are found in grocery stores and convenience marts. They also, along with a distributor called the Ice Wagon (a take on the kind that used to deliver ice in the Roaring '20s), provide ice to many of the restaurants and bars in town. On any given day, Reddy Ice delivers 100 pallets a day throughout town. Considering there are 1,000 pounds of ice per pallet, that's a lot of rocks. So hoist an ice-filled glass to the folks at Reddy Ice. They keep the Old Pueblo cool!
