STEVENS POINT — Residents may lose an hour over this weekend by setting their clocks forward, but they do have ice cream to gain.
Carl D’s Soft Serve will open its doors this Saturday, and with it, some added items to the menu. On opening day, on top of soft serve, you can help yourself to newly available cheesy soft pretzels, as well as some favorites, including snow cones and slushies.
On Saturday, the first 50 customers will receive a bag of cheddar popcorn, free of charge. In addition, ‘Cones for Paws’ will be making a return this season. On March 17, 100 percent of all proceeds will go towards the Portage Co. Humane Society.
This weekend, however, customers can try out green pistachio and mint shakes, themed after St. Patrick’s Day.
Carl D’s is open from noon to 9PM on Saturdays and Sundays, and Monday through Friday from 3PM to 3AM. Carl D’s is located at 1232 Park St.
