Springtime Reopenings Give Us Hope That Spring Will Eventually Come

March 4, 2010 10:00 AM 3 comments

The entrance of March brings with it the reopening of some of our favorite local walk-up food joints. I Dream of Weenie and Bobbie’s Dairy Dip have reopened as of this week, and although it’s still a little too cold to stand outside munching a hot dog, we have hopes that spring will throw some warm weather our way soon, and we can start indulging our hot dog-and-soft-serve dreams. Reigning Nashvillest BBQ champ Martin’s Bar-B-Que has also reopened, after a few cold winter months slaving away working on their brand new location.

We’re still pining away for our Mas Tacos and Jolly Rogue fix in 2010 (but thankfully, we can get snowballs year-round at Fleur de Lis Flavors). What are your favorite seasonal treats here in Nashville? Let us know in the comments!

EDIT: Since it’s supposed to be 63 degrees and sunny on Monday (then rain the rest of the week), we’ve decided it’s time to hold a little Nashvillest meetup. Bobbie’s Dairy Dip for lunch at 12pm Monday (3/8)! We’ll see you there!

    Rita's Italian Ice on Lebanon Road. I'm from New Jersey and we call it “water ice” so to have a real “water ice” place is so phenomenal to me. I've lived in TN for 17 years so I'm a Southern gal at heart but water ice is where its at!! :)

    We love Rita's! The area that I grew up in had a Rita's, and it holds so many good memories for me.
