The calendar may say March 21, but it sure feels like summer this week. Accordingly, I’ll bet I’m not the only AP resident looking around at our seasonal businesses and wondering when they’ll be opening up for the spring.
So here’s a roundup so far:
Kay’s Pizza – Everyone’s favorite lakeside roadhouse. Looks like they will open on April 1st! No foolin…
The Hollywood Drive-In – One of the last remaining drive-in movie theaters in the Capital District. They are hoping for April 6, but it’s not set in stone yet. So get that bug spray ready…
Jiffy Mart Ice Cream – Their ice cream sign was on when I drove by on March 17. Lucky indeed! I’ll be stopping in for a FlavorBurst cone very soon….
Rocket’s Drive In – Not seeing any signs of life yet. They tend to open later than most.
Hoffay Farm – I drove by the other day and their placard said Opening March 24. Not sure if that means their playground is opening or if this is just for the Harvest House. Guess you’ll have to stop in and check it out for yourself.
That is about it for our local town haunts. (Did I miss any??) However, there are some goodies in our neighboring towns as well.
Jack’s Drive In – You can smell the burgers up and down Main Street. They beat most to the punch and opened mid-March. Be prepared for long lines as long as this summer weather holds.
The Big Dipper – A yummy ice cream/food stand also on Main Street.
Again, not seeing much sign of life yet. Look like they are open! Yay!
North and East Greenbush:
Gene’s Fish Fry – Gotta love their website. One big fish with the words…Opening Day April 28th, 2011.
The Oasis – They opened for mini golf and ice cream on March 18.
Funplex and Lickety Split – Nothing on the website yet and haven’t driven by lately.
And now a moment of silence for the late Wholly Cow in Nassau. Bummer.
