Spring has almost arrived. Murray’s opening Tuesday.

Over the past week I’ve heard that Murray’s Ice Cream and Cookies’ winter hibernation was over and the open sign was back. One person told me it opened last Saturday, while another thought it opened today.

Both are wrong but not by much. Dust-off that punch card because Murray’s opens March 17. People have been anticipating it so much that Westport’s having a parade that day and everyone’s going to dress up in green. Oh sure, they’ll say it’s for St. Patrick’s Day but Murray’s ice cream is worth partying about, too.

Murray’s may serve sugar cookies with green icing that day, but everything else will be normal from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Regular business hours start the next day: Tuesdays through Thursdays noon to 10 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays noon to 11 p.m. and Sundays noon to 9 p.m.
