Well Hello Dolly! – UPDATED

By punk in drublic 24 September 2006 22

The popular food van Dollys near the ANU has been sold for more then a song…

Dollys food van went under the digital hammer last night at 8pm.

It ended up being sold for over $40,000 dollars, well just over.

UPDATE: A big hello to the Canberra Times’ Claire Low who’s picked up the story and spoken to the new owner Harry Nguyen, 26. Harry’s promising to bring back the glory days of Dolly’s with a return of the hot dog and some healthier choices (because when I’ve spent the night poisoning myself with liquor and second hand smoke I’m after a healthy bite to throw up minutes later?).

What’s Your opinion?

I believe “Dolly” was the nickname of the original owner of the business Graeme Dwyer. They were probably the goldern years of the establishment – it was a regular hang out for the plods who would gather around the back to drink Graeme’s scotch when they should have been patrolling Civic, and in the quite times you could just wander in the back door and make yourself a burger…

$40K wouldn’t be more then the cost of the second hand equipment in the van – the espresso machine was probably worth half of that.

2nd hand espresso machine worth 20 grand? What do you base that on?

Can I part some wisdom here?

If you had a huge night and you know you are going to throw up afterwards, have a Tim-Tams!
It will curtail the foul taste of the vomit. In fact, your vomit will taste like Tim-Tams!!

Oh god, that’s so disgusting – yet nevertheless well worth knowing.

On a thinly-related note … I once read an article about a fighter pilot who did occasional passenger entertainment/stunt/demo flights. The journo asked for a breakfast recommendation since it was considered normal on these rides to toss your cookies. Pilot responded, “bananas … they taste the some coming up as going down.”
