Sippin’ on Shakes

“Down to the drugstore, to be with the crowd
A candy sodapop for cyrin’ out loud
All day long, sittin’ on a stool
Drinking milkshakes again, she giggles like a fool.”
– Jerry Lee Lewis, “Milkshake Mademoiselle”

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love milkshakes. This won’t be the last post I make about milkshakes, but let me tell you this is one of the best milkshakes I’ve ever enjoyed. I give to you A. Schwab.  This awesome place was founded way back in 1876 and we recently had the pleasure of sitting on a bar stool of the old soda shop to enjoy hand scooped milkshakes right there at the bar. You can’t go to Memphis without visiting this Beale Street staple. You just can’t argue with a milkshake in a glass jar and a candystripe straw.
