Let's all go to the Dairy Queen...

This is one of the two Dairy Queens we went to as kids. It was built in 1947 and never had interior seats, you just had to walk up to the window, I think. Anyway, it's now the oldest DQ in Minnesota, and one of the 10 most endangered historical places in the state.

You know, I like dipped cones fine, but I'm really not sure a DQ, even one with this cool neon, qualifies as a historical place in need of protection.

Funny, I was just there tonight (small hot fudge sundae), and I was thinking how I needed to come back with a camera and take pictures of it.

We used to go there too - many a Dilly Bar was eaten by us. Are you also sad that they tore down the Carbone's on Dale? - love reading your blog, btw, as another Minnesotan transplanted to the Pacific NW.

Baby Boomers think anything they went to as a kid deserves historical protection. So many ugly buildings in my town built in the 59's and no one wants them replaced. At least PAINT them!
