Memorial Day marks the unofficial beginning of summer, but for many people in Columbus it really isn’t summer until they’ve had their first lick of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream on a hot sunny day. So far this spring that’s been impossible, because a listeria outbreak caused Jeni’s to shut down its operations. But Jeni’s is getting ready to reopen and will begin selling its ice cream again at 7 p.m. on May 22. Expect long lines at the German Village window on Mohawk Street!
The North Market apparently will be closed at 7 pm. on May 22 — because this sign at the Jeni’s counter there says that, for North Market patrons, Jeniday won’t come until May 23.
