Cool Off This Summer With One Of These Monster Milkshakes In Portland
More than 15 years ago, an artist named Kelis released a song called "Milkshake" that still resonates with people today. One of the key lines from the song is "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard". While Kelis was talking about a much different kind of milkshake, there is a music venue/bar in Portland called The Yard and they're about to roll out some very serious milkshakes that you can actually devour.
Shared on Facebook by The Yard, take a look at these monsters and let yourself dream a little. Overflowing from the mason jars they're packed into, these four ice cream mountains should probably be on your summer bucket list if you're not counting calories.
So what exactly are you looking at here? Well, one of those beauties is a chocolate lovers milkshake, topped with decadent chocolate chips, whipped cream and a brownie. Maybe the sea salt caramel milkshake is more your jam, that one is topped with an upside down cone, a blondie and rimmed with pretzels. If that isn't enough for you, there will also be a strawberry cheesecake milkshake. All you need to know about this one is it will literally be topped with a slice of strawberry cheesecake. Come on, man.
The Yard has yet to announce their grand reopening date but when they do, there's likely to be a line of milkshake enthusiasts at their doorstep. The owners have been working on a redesign of their patio for maximum comfort. Sounds perfect for crushing one of these shakes. Cheers to summer and cheers to staying cool.
