We had a taste of warmer temperatures last week. And while it's a bit chilly now, the warmer temperatures are returning soon, and pretty soon we'll want a taste of something cool to stave off the sun and heat of summer. Enter stage left Gengenbacher's Shaved Ice Shack! They're opening for the 2017 season full time on Memorial Day weekend, but we'll be able to get some before hand on the weekends throughout May, including this weekend during Dogwood Festival.

When asked for details, owner Janet Gengenbacher Smith said:

We will be open this weekend [May 7-8] at our Broadway location. Our hours for this weekend are Saturday 2:30-10pm and Sunday 12-10. We will also have our portable Shack down at Dogwood this weekend. Saturday 11-6ish and Sunday 12-4ish. Depending on weather, we will be open weekends only 12-10 at our Broadway location from here on out. Memorial Day weekend will be when we open full time.  Our hours will be 12-10 everyday from that weekend on!!"

We here at the Townsquare Studios are super excited that the Shack is back, and soon!
