Trinity of Spring: 2010 Edition

PortLand Malt Shoppe has been open about two weeks.
Gordy’s Hi-Hat has been open about three weeks.
A & Dubs is still boarded up.

As you all know, it is not officially spring until the full trinity of seasonal favorites is open. Anyone with an inside track on when A & Dubs will open, please report. The number listed in the phone book “has been disconnected or is no longer in service.” Don’t worry, I think it is normal for A & Dubs’ phone to be disconnected out of season. It usually opens in mid-May.

Of related interest:
* Hacienda del Sol will open its outdoor courtyard on April 14.
* West Duluth Diary Queen is open.

I'd best be getting to that Diary Queen, my journal is almost all filled up from the winter!

Seriously though, it's an unusual Spring we've been having, no? Balmy. Is the Malt Shoppe usually open this early?

Sorry to hijack the topic, but every time I have purchased a malt at Portland over the years the ice cream was freezer burned, with annoying chunks of ice throughout. Is it just my luck or has anyone else ever had this experience?

I think it was just your luck. Mine have always been good.

Awesome malts when there. Bad luck you had.
A nice walk and a malt, I wish I was there now.

My kid loves the place, Tony D, we've never had a bad cone or malt or anything there.

Best spot for a cone? How about 8th Street Video on 47th?
