What do you do if you have some time to kill before dinner in Northern Liberties…you grab your pal Philly Jilli and head to the ironic, hipster mecca that is known as PYT Burgers for some milkshakes. If you never been to PYT it is like a living American Apparel add with burgers and milkshakes. Try to order a milkshake to go and you can wait up till 10 minutes before giving up. My mom vowed to only fall for that three times so we decided to drink our milkshakes on location. Best idea of the week and I will tell you why. PYT is always mail ordering some kind of prop. There have been kiddie pools, bull riding, and wacky water squirted but their latest infomercial find takes the cake. Picture a giant…(take what you are thinking x10) velvety,avocado beanbag chair in what seems to be the breezest section of Northern Liberties and you have a party in seconds.
The beanbag is on the side of PYT which for some reason is a crazy wind tunnel…normally annoying with all the furniture cushion blowing around it was the only place with a breeze on one of the hottest days ever. The giant bean bag was an amazing distraction while I was waiting for our order. Our server Brody brought out the yummiest milkshakes with whip cream and cherries. We drank out of the giant glasses until we were stuffed and then hit the road. I was so over my milkshake limit that I dropped the to go cup Brody put mine in on the ground as I was leaving. I was embarrassed but everyone was super cool about it. Sorry Brody…thank you for the memories.
