Well of course I don't have the funding to open an ice cream parlor, but the thought is still in my mind for something I would love to do later in life. But I kept walking by the place hoping for change, or for me to win the lottery or something to help the owner out and make it the profitable place it could be.
Well to my amazement, I saw an article on WaukeshaNow.com today stating a Sloppy Joe diner is coming to downtown! So of course I have to read the article, and much to my surprise, the ice cream parlor sold to the owners of Divino Gelato and its only a matter of time until its another wonderful place. (If you haven't been to Divino Gelato yet, you must - Just west of the intersection of Main Street and Barstow, on Main - in downtown Waukesha!)
So read the article below and I will of course review the place once open!!!!

Miss Kim's, the seldom-open diner that forever occupied a prime corner on the Five Points, is gone.
Joe and Lois Lester, owners of the popular Divino Gelato Cafe on W. Main St., are opening a restaurant within a couple of weeks that will feature sloppy Joe's, real ice cream, a soda fountain and hot dogs.
Over the weekend, the Lesters began interior clean up and scrapped off the painted signs that Miss Kim had on the windows.
Miss Kim is okay. She just decided to let go of the business, Joe Lester said.
The name of the place, at this point, is Sloppy Joe's Featuring the Pink Poodle. Lois Lester said the place will have a 1950s feel to it and some of the staff will wear poodle skirts, which she is having made.
The new diner will be kitty-corner the posh Black Trumpet Restaurant.
