A snowy day in Chicago can’t stop me. I have 4-wheel drive and no fear!

Shake23

February 21, 2013 (Shake #22 @ Restaurant #12184 – Palatine, IL)

A cold shake on a cold night. No matter the weather, the shake still tastes great.

Got my new shoes today. I do think the color is a pretty good match!

Shake20

February 18, 2013 (Shake #19 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

Is it too early to start thinking about a shake-a-day for a year? Probably.

Shake19

February 17, 2013 (Shake #18 @ Restaurant #12184 – Palatine, IL)

A nice relaxing Sunday evening with a chilled Shamrock Shake. And a warm chocolate chip cookie. Call me McCrazy.

Shake18

February 16, 2013 (Shake #17 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

The idea of having a Shamrock Shake during the marathon is gaining traction in my mind…

Shake17

February 15, 2013 (Shake #16 @ Restaurant #6941 – Prospect Heights, IL)

Sweet #16! And, let me tell you, I think this was the best one yet. Maybe it was the 9-mile run immediately before the shake? :)

Shake16

February 14, 2013 (Shake #15 @ Restaurant #12184 – Palatine, IL)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Shake15

February 13, 2013 (Shake #14 @ Restaurant #12184 – Palatine, IL)

Had what may have been the mintiest shake of the bunch today. Smooooooth!

Shake14

February 12, 2013 (Shake #13 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

Lucky #13!

Shake13

February 11, 2013 (Shake #12 @ Restaurant #12184 – Palatine, IL)

Officially more than 25% of the way there! Still minty delicious.

Shake12

February 10, 2013 (Shake #11 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

Went back to the fancy shake today, adding the whipped cream and cherry. Got to keep mixing it up over these 45 days. :)

Shake11

February 9, 2013 (Shake #10 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

Hit double digits with shake #10! I have to imagine I’m in a elite group having consumed this many shakes so early into Shamrock Shake Season. And many compliments on my fine shirt.

Shake10

February 8, 2013 (Shake #9 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

Friday night shake after work and a nice run. TGIF.

Shake9

February 7, 2013 (Shake #8 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

While ordering my shake, guy next to me says, “Forgot they were out.” How on earth do you forget the Shamrock Shake is here?!

Shake8

February 6, 2013 (Shake #7 @ Restaurant #17893 – Wheeling, IL)

One week anniversary shake. My oh my, how time flies.

Shake7

February 5, 2013 (Shake #6 @ Restaurant #12184- Palatine, IL)

Thanks to my wife for picking up the shake after her meeting. I’m thinking that I’ll need to try a breakfast shake one of these days. Thinking green shake and eggs?

Shake6

February 4, 2013 (Shake #5 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

Routine shake run. My helper held the sign, but I wouldn’t share the shake. :)

Shake5

February 3, 2013 (Shake #4 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

Was starting to sweat after first two locations were out of the shake. Back to trusty #1783 for a shake and an apple pie.

Shake4

February 2, 2013 (Shake #3 @ Restaurant #23475 – Frankfort, IL)

Nice to see the shake is popping up everywhere. And if anyone should need to know, this location rang up the sale as an eggnog shake. Not very befitting for a shake of this status.

Shake3

February 1, 2013 (Shake #2 @ Restaurant #1783 – Arlington Heights, IL)

Got this one for the road after a nice relaxing dinner. Nice location!

Shake #2

January 31, 2013 (Shake #1 @ Restaurant #3755 – Palatine, IL)

Giddy up! Thank you Christine for spotting the shake and letting us know! And it sure was delicious.

Shake 1

January 30, 2013

Okay, I’ll admit that I did check ShamrockShake.com. But, only like twice. Oh, and I did kind of check Twitter for any news. And slooowly drove by a McDonald’s or two. I’ll continue to wait patiently…

January 29, 2013

Hope is on the horizon — @McDonalds tweeted the Shamrock Shake is almost back. Not sure what “almost back” means to the good folks at McD’s. But, I’m going to go out on a limb and say the minty green shake will be in my hands within 7 short days. Hahahaha.

January 28, 2013

Another day with no success. I was fooled by two postings on ShamrockShake.com. I called one of the stores to only find they are still selling the egg nog shake. Really?!

January 27, 2013

Despite my efforts, still not a shake in sight. Maybe tomorrow will be my lucky day.

January 26, 2013

After successfully identifying the Shamrock Shake was available in Minnesota, I failed to find it in the Chicago area. For a minute, I thought the shake was released in Milwaukee, but a quick call proved ShamrockShake.com cannot be trusted. Although discouraged, I will continue my search tomorrow.

January 25, 2013

Lookin’ for Shamrock Shakes in all the wrong places! Checked everywhere, but no sign of it.

January 24, 2013

Game on! I’m on the hunt for the elusive Shamrock Shake. I hope ShamrockShake.com is for realz. I’m going to need it!
