5. Toothsome Milkshake Foundry opens in Philadelphia
Last weekend, we braved the elements and walked 1,000 miles to get some milkshakes in the show. Toothsome Milkshake Foundry opened at Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia, and we were there for the opening. While the menu is decidedly more limited than what we’re used to here in Orlando, the Foundry offers a sort of “greatest hits” menu for those fierce patrons who like it sweet while cheering on the 76ers or Flyers. We can’t help but wonder – where else could a Toothsome appear?
