A Minnesota Dairy Queen
Minnesota is where Dairy Queen started so it makes sense that there are so many of them here. It also helps explain why there are big long lines outside them in the summertime (tradition and all that), but I've never seen Dairy Queens close down in the winter like they do here. The first year I saw this Dairy Queen on Lex at 94, I thought, "How sad. It went out of business." But it was right back in business the next year. So now, every winter when I see the DQ all boarded up I just think, "Shhhhh, she's sleeping."
