Please don't actually go to Manhattan's first Dairy Queen: "In summation: There is no justifiable reason to go to a DQ Grill & Chill in New York. Not when the Manhattan location opens next week and not ever anytime after that.

But I still remain very skeptical that we’re going to break through HIV stigma."
