August 17th is a quiet coffee and sandwich shop located in Clear Lake, SD.
Why the name?
The name comes from a date very near and dear to the owner. Mary and Jon Klockman were married on August 17th, but that is not where the story ends. Mary's parents, Jon's parents and Jon's grandparents also share the wedding anniversary, and finally, Mary's mother was born on August 17th.
When Jon and Mary could not agree on a name for the coffee shop, Mary jokingly said, "How about August 17th? That seems to work for us." Jon agreed and the coffee shop in Clear Lake was named.
