Continue for May's openings and closings, and as always, let us know if we've missed anything in the comments. (Psst: Comments not working for you? We have a new system that requires you to log in via Facebook. We're crossing our fingers it won't prove too onerous.)
As for next month? It's already looking exciting -- remember, Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams opens Thursday, with ice cream for all!
