You'll probably need to kick on the heater in your car if you're going to use the window tray, but many are excited that the Root Beer Stand is opening for the season in February.

To some, the swallows returning to Capistrano is a sign of Spring- in Michigan, we look for the first robin. As baseball fans count down the days until pitchers and catchers report, we watch the potholes fill with melting snow and become puddles. While it's not yet time to open the outdoor patio at your favorite restaurant  and the Mackinac Island ferrys won't be running for a while, one sure sign of Spring has manifest: the opening of The Root Beer Stand.

While we wait for the first day of spring, you can enjoy the first taste of spring. Flip flop season can't be too far away!
