National Vanilla Milkshake Day is June 20th, 2012
Before milkshakes were ordered at diners and malt shops across the country, they were ordered in bars. That's because the name "milkshake" was first given to an alcoholic concoction of whiskey and eggs (ew, by the way). We're not sure who decided to take out the whiskey and the eggs and add the ice cream and the milk, but thank you, whoever you are. So order yourself a milkshake today. And since it's specifically vanilla milkshake day, skip the crazy flavors and cookie chunks and keep it simple.
