Spring officially begins March 21, but Dinkytown got an early start today with the first restaurant, Burrito Loco, opening its outdoor seating today, Dinkytown Business Association president Skott Johnson said.

“[It’s] a sure sign of spring,” Johnson said. The Purple Onion, at 13th and University, will likely be the next to open its outdoor seating, he said.

Temperatures this week peak at 41 degrees on Saturday.
