If you live anywhere near Happy’s Shaved Ice, Bubble Tea & Smoothies (1708 50th Street), you know that it's a really beloved institution of central Lubbock. And if you've ever tried it, you know why: Delicious and fun flavors, accompanied with excellent service. (Which reminds me...I have a full punch card to use. Yes!)

Happy's is opening a much-needed second location in southwest Lubbock. According to Lubbock in the Loop, it will be located at 114th and Indiana and will be, "four times the size of the 50th & Ave. Q location, indoor seating, and drive thru." It's set to open sometime late fall or in early 2019.

In the meantime, be sure to try the original location and let me recommend my favorite menu item: Sugar free strawberry shaved ice with strawberry bubbles and cream on top.
