On Friday, I wrote this about 45-year-old Faith Dairy in Friday's GO section:
The dairy's drive-through qualifies as a restaurant amenity in my book, wherein this note also resides: "Best darned airy ice cream I've ever eaten." I normally prefer dense ice cream, but Faith's had luscious appeal: light but creamy, lifted by air but not over-whipped with air. Great flavors: almond-praline, butter brickle, cherry-vanilla, orange-pineapple; $3.50 per quart.
Today I write that you'd better get to the drive-thru by this weekend. It, and the dairy, are closing for good.
The dairy's cows have been sold, and on Wednesday they'll move to Roy. I'd heard reports that milk-bottle customers were being asked if they wanted their deposits back.
Faith Dairy: 3509 72nd St. E, Tacoma; 253-531-3398.
