Friday Night Fun at the Dairy-Ette!

So...there's this total hole in the wall place in Dallas across from Bishop Lynch called the Dairy-Ette.
Apparently AALLLL the neighbor gals have been there except me.
It's kind of like Kellers...but it has a small diner too.

They make their own Root Beer! I LOVE ROOT BEER!




Yes, people drive up, & then sit out in their own chairs & meet up at the Dairy-Ette. The place has been here for twenty-some-odd years....

Gage brought a few dinosaurs...they ate "Dinosaur Food", also known as Sweet-n-Low.




And....we drank LOTS of Root Beer in big frosty mugs!


It was a ton of fun. Word to the wise if you choose to check out the Dairy-Ette: (1) one order of fries will be enough for 2 people, or 2 people & a toddler. There's no need to order 3 orders of fries just because 3 people will be eating... (2) The Dairy-Ette is cash only. And if you end up not having enough cash---there's an ATM across the street at the 7-11.
:)

....cash only......I hardly EVER have cash anymore....

I love root beer! I went to the A&W by my house after my root canal and got a root beer float and it made me so happy. That place sounds like so much fun. And I never have cash anymore, either!

Homemade root beer? That sounds great! I love root beer as well, but have never had any homemade root beer!

I love places like this! We have one here called scoopers that is kind of like this but they don't make their own root beer...they make a million and one different kinds of milk shakes!!

Soooo, I love french fries and root beer. I never have cash either. My mom says it is our generation because she always has at least some cash.

I am coming to Dallas as soon as things settle down around here and I'd LOVE to meet you. I'd love to go shopping and hang out. It's one of my favorite things.

Thanks for asking me about my safety. We will be hit pretty hard, yes. Luke & I live in an old house that sits up off the ground so it probably won't flood but I don't feel safe from the winds and rains. We will probably just go to my mom's house.

Thanks for checking on me. I will be updating the blog(and twitter) as much as possible.

Oh, sounds like a blast! Makes me homesick for SONIC in Texas! We don't have SONIC in LA. I go there every time I go home to visit!

This place even sounds better, but I'm from Houston not Dallas!

Cutie Patootie, that boy of yours!

OK, did no one else find the pictures of the dinosaurs snorting lines as slightly humorous. Man, what kind of outfit are you running up there in Dallas??

JACKELOPE: Okay...when Hubby poured the Sweet-n-Low out on the table & the dinosaurs took to it---that's exactly what I thought too. I felt like I was watching some trippy scene out of the movie, "Blow" or "Spun"...
We're crazy I tell ya...I suppose I'm just one step up from Britney...

I don't ever carry cash either. And I am always shocked when someone asks for it! :) Looks like a good time was had by all.

That sounds like fun!
But the cash thing? always throws me, I never have cash.
Hope things are well with you guys, thanks for your sweet comments!

Dairy-Ette? The name alone warrants a visit!

What is this cash thing of which you speak?

Mmmm. Root beer. Too bad they don't serve pizza...but maybe you could order a delivery there.
