Available for reservations, a romantic dinner-for-two at ... *checks notes* ... Dairy Queen?

The frozen food favorite is making an unusual offer for diners at 10 of its Grill & Chill restaurants in the U.S., one of which is in Minnesota: the DQ at 7700 Normandale Blvd. in Edina.

The Edina DQ will make a single table available at the restaurant for reservations from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, Apr. 12, and noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Apr. 13 and 14.

The table will have its own dedicated DQ server, and will be "adorned with vibrant décor, special place settings, [and] fun interactive elements."

The "Perfect Pairs" promotion is running to promote DQ's launch of its new Chicken & Waffles Basket, which will go on sale for a limited-time run beginning Apr. 1.

The new basket meal combines chicken strips, "authentic" Belgian waffles, fries and syrup.

"The DQ Date Tables will offer a new way for people to enjoy our stores, as well as our new sweet and savory eats, whether it’s with a significant other, friend, child, coworker or anyone you consider to be your ‘perfect pair.’"
