It may not feel like it, but Spring has sprung (astronomically, at least) and Dairy Queen has found a fun way to celebrate. Anyone that hits a local DQ – as long as it’s not in a mall – you’ll score a free small vanilla soft-serve cone with the signature curl on the top (one per person). Want it dipped in chocolate? You can, but it’ll cost you $1 – and it’s worth it, but more on that in a minute.
Dubbed "Free Cone Day" by Dairy Queen, the company has something more than giving away product on their minds: they use this day to collect donations for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. So if you feel inspired by the cause, you can drop off your donation before picking up your cone OR donate when you get your cone dipped! To find out how you can donate to Children’s Miracle Network facilities, CLICK HERE and in the meantime, go get your cone on!
There's also another frozen treat you can enjoy TODAY.
I'm a native Washingtonian - born in Alexandria and raised in Silver Spring. I hardly attended class at John F. Kennedy High School. Was too busy running the school radio station. (The same one I brought in from my bedroom. My parents got sick of all the loud music.) Anyway, 45 years later, I'm on the air at my favorite hometown station, 97.1 WASH-FM. I'm blessed to be married to Wendy, a wonderful New Jersey gurl and have two amazing kids, Max & Bonnie that keep us busy and happily frustrated. Thanks for reading AND listening! Email Loo!
Unlike most people who live in the DC area...I'm actually FROM here. I was born in Northwest, DC and raised in Vienna, Virginia. I'm first generation Armenian-American. Shortly after graduating from Mary Washington College (now it's University of Mary Washington), I was lucky enough to land a radio gig back in DC. I've worked on the air in this market since 1996, as a news reporter/anchor, morning show side-kick, afternoon personality and traffic reporter.
A little more about my personal interests... I'm a book worm (I've been known to read at least one novel a week). My favorite book is "To Kill a Mockingbird". I'm addicted to "Grey's Anatomy", "Boardwalk Empire", "Game of Thrones", "The Following", "The Americans" and "Breaking Bad"...don't even think about calling me during those shows! My favorite movie of all-time is "Rocky." One of the highlights of my career was interviewing Sylvester Stallone.
After several heartbreaks, I finally met a guy who actually MEANT it when he said "I want to marry you someday." My husband (Don) and I met in December 2007... and got married on May 22nd, 2011. Like me... Don is also a native Washingtonian.
Also: I don't like walking on grates, I'm SUPER competitive, I have a tendency to "sing speak" when I get excited (you may even hear me do it on the air sometimes...LOL). I've become a HUGE Washington Capitals fan since meeting my husband. Oh...and I'm a pop culture junkie. My guilty pleasures are bad reality TV and celebrity gossip. Email Chilli!
