The Dairy Bar in Booneville, Arkansas
I noticed today that they have partially dismantled the old Dairy Bar building on Highway 10 in Booneville. It has a significant place in my childhood memories. It was the reigning hamburger joint of the time in our community. My father got paid once a month, and usually he would take us out for a "payday treat," which consisted of a 5-cent ice cream cone from the Dairy Bar. Given the fact that we very rarely got store-bought sweets, it was a big deal to us.
