Ordinarily, I do not care for the food served at Dairy Queen restaurants... however, at this point in time seeing one is my top priority...

Seeing a Dairy Queen restaurant? Seeing a person affiliated with one? Seeing a Dairy Queen, as in some sort of pageant winner in the south?

Are you on a scavenger hunt? In need of a bathroom? Trying to get an icky taste out of your mouth? Looking for signs of civilization (which used to be symbolized by whether or not a place had a McDonalds)?

Are you seeking employment at Dairy Queen?
Or some other business arrangement?
Are you trying to find someplace, and the directions
you have include a Dairy Queen as a landmark?

Do you need to take and item with you when you leave the Dairy Queen?

Do you need to actually go inside the building?

Are you lost and the most prominent thing around is the giant DQ sign?
Is it a specific DQ that you're looking for? Or will any DQ do? If a particular one, is there something special about this DQ? As in... is there something odd about the building? Is there something funny/odd about their sign?

Mmmkay... so were you looking for a DQ building? Or a DQ sign? Billboard? Outside menu?
Did you want to see what their latest special was? Latest prices? Get a picture of the giant... whatever shape they use? (What DO they use? A giant ice cream cone? Somebody else help me out) Was there something special they were advertising with? Was there something they had on display? Like a giant monkey? Something that was worth getting a picture of? Stealing?

Are you playing a game where you need to find the letters of the alphabet and you need the "q"?

Are you playing a game where you need to find the letters of the alphabet and you need the "q"? EXACTLY RIGHT!!!!! I was playing the traveling game where you have to "find" words starting with each letter of the alphabet. I just found a Parking garage, and I needed a Dairy Queen to get the next letter, the Q. Great job!

This one went quick! Thanks for the attention in solving this one so quickly!
