How to Celebrate a National Holiday

Happy National Chocolate Milkshake Day!

Learn about the medicinal value of milkshakes from one of Pittsburgh’s finest milkshake shops.

And while you’re doing that, make sure you’re having a milkshake of your own. It’ll keep you strong.

Chocolate Milkshake

1 c milk

1 to 2 scoops ice cream

2 tbsp chocolate syrup [more to taste]

optional:

1 banana

chocolate chips

Put it all in the blender, and blend. My mother taught me that there is only one way to drink a milkshake: in a giant cup, with a straw. Any other way is just not in the spirit of a national celebration. And a national celebration is what this is.

“Pick your piston.”
-Special Correspondent Perel

It’s high summer, which means that it’s time to accept the nonsense in life. Such nonsense includes heat, humidity, open fire hydrants, and – according to Perel – your choice of piston. Make sure you’ve got water and sunscreen at the ready, and enjoy the many types of pistons that life has to offer.
