The Making of a Shamrock Shake Run

There’s more to getting your mitts on a Shamrock Shake on St. Patrick’s Day than simply driving to Grand Forks. Hot 103’s Ace Burpee coordinated an early morning run to a McDonald’s south of the border today.

Unlike last year, showing up and ordering a hundred shakes is a bit overwhelming for the restaurant. So, this year, they decided to call ahead.

The best part? The response from the Canadian border agent when a car full of frozen milkshakes pulls up.

While we’re on the topic … enjoy this Shamrock Shake commercial from 1983.
