Gengenbacher’s Announces 2018 Opening Date
Spring is finally in the air…I think…maybe…and that can only mean one thing for eager Quincyans: The Shack Is Back!
Yep! Gengenbacher’s Shaved Ice Shack is officially open for business beginning Sunday, April 29! According to a Facebook post, the popular summer hangout opens at 12:00 noon and will close…whenever they feel like it, I guess. They say 5:00, but admit that’s a flexible depending on weather and traffic.
As if you didn’t know already, but Gengenbacher’s is located in the parking lot of the 36th and Broadway K-Mart that is very much open despite what Brodie says. (Oh, speaking of that, there's a taco truck there now too, so 2018 is definitely the Year of the K-Mart Parking Lot!) If years past are any indication, we can expect them to be going strong well into September when they pack it up for the season. Then again, if years past are any indication, it shouldn’t be snowing in April, so who knows I guess.
