Goodbye DQ; Hello DQ/Orange Julius!

It was the worst of times, but it will soon be the best of times.  Just a few short hours after closing their doors for the last time, the Dairy Queen on South Washington began dismantling, starting with the iconic “Dairy Queen” sign which sat atop the building.  The only thing missing was the two creepy guys from “American Pickers” asking the owner how much she needed for the sign.  But the future looks bright.  The old DQ, which is pretty much my “Home DQ,” is being replaced by a new Dairy Queen/Orange Julius.  Basically two of the greatest places ever under one roof.  And if you’re old enough to remember Orange Julius, well, congratulations.  Back in the day, in the West Wing of Columbia Mall, there was an Orange Julius.  And if we hadn’t caused too much trouble during the days shopping activities, we got to make a stop at the Julius.  Suffice it to say that we only stopped there about 25% of the time.  But I digress.  The new DQ/OJ will be DOUBLE the size of the old place and have seating for 30.  February can’t come soon enough.

No word on whether the chain-linked fence separating DQ from Starbucks will remain.  “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
