When you think about seasonal favorites in Upstate New York a lot of ice cream parlors come to mind. Well, they aren't the only businesses that close down for the winter and reopen at the first signs of spring.

I know a lot of people start seeing signs of spring in the new buds on the trees or the birds chirping or even the orange cones of construction on the Thruway. But for me, it's the announcements of some of my seasonal favorite restaurants getting ready to open up for the season. Even if it's a month away my mouth is already watering thinking about the hot, cheesy goodness of Kay's Pizza, the creamy decadent Flurries from Snowman Ice cream or the oh-so-good greasy burgers and fries from Jumpin Jack's Drive-In.
