'Punked' by 2nd winter, Sea Salt pushes back re-opening

It'll officially re-open on Apr. 12.

The new season lasted all of three days.

After opening as usual for the season on Easter weekend, Sea Salt Eatery at Minnehaha Park was forced to close just a few days later because of conditions made treacherous by snow and ice.

What followed? You guessed it, Monday's ridiculous dump of spring snow, which was then frozen by a cold front bringing frigid temperatures.

After valiantly trying to stick it out, Sea Salt has now decided to hold its re-reopening for the season next Thursday, Apr. 12.

"We'll admit it," the restaurant said on Twitter, "Old Man Winter punked us."

"He usually throws some snow around and that's fine ... but this year he added sheets of ice in front of the restaurant and now below zero temps? Come on, this is NOT what anyone ordered."

Saying it's admitting defeat, the seafood restaurant say it's donated its fish to local food shelves, though also "drank all the beer."

It looks like Minnesota is in for another round of snow before the weather warms up, with a Sunday snowstorm very possible.
