Spent the afternoon in Pasadena with this handsome fella…

…since I was in the area, I swung by Great Harvest, hoping to pick up a loaf and snack on bread samples. But they had JUST closed. D’oh! (I mean, Dough!)

Checked my handy Yelp App to see what else was in the area, and noticed the Fair Oaks Pharmacy was down the street.

A real live drugstore, with nostalgia galore…

Grabbed a seat at the counter and ordered a milkshake to go.

The kid tried to talk me into a Peanut Butter concoction, but I was pretty adamant about the Chocolate Banana. (I call him “kid” because he kept calling me “ma’am.”)

This drink was #7 on LA Weekly’s list

…as you can see, it’s pretty thin, but highly delicious – with big chunks of banana going up the straw.

Crazy $$$, though. With tip, this little treat cost $10! I think if you order in, you get the overflow? I didn’t – even though I finished it while waiting for my credit card receipt.

Filling too – before bedtime, I snacked on a bowl of figs and frozen grapes.

What’s the most you would pay for a really good milkshake? And to think, all that hoopla over the $5 one in Pulp Fiction
