The Hitman

For those waiting to find out the results of the Schnack team vs. The Hitman you'll have to wait til the end of the regular season. That game was not played due to weather. Remember, 150 cheese singles have been bet against 2 tubs of Uncle Louie G's Ice Cream.

Beer Milkshake

As much as we would like to take credit for inventing the Beer Milkshake, the first reference we have found is in Steinbeck's Cannery Row.

"Henri watches a pole skater hired by Holman's Department Store. Doc heads for La Jolla. Eats a hamburger at Herman's, then more at Gonzales, King City, Paso Robles, Santa Maria and Santa Barbara where he picks up a hitchhiker whom he throws out at Ventura where he has a beer milkshake."

Video Please

Schnack has really been in the media lately. A few weeks ago it was the burger eating down at the Red Hook Marine Terminal. This coming week we have ABC/Time Out and Discovery coming into Schnack to "film." Of course these days that means video.

Discovery is getting footage for a promo they will be using during the memorial day weekend. They will be shooting from 7am to 11:30am and our opening will be delayed this coming Monday (May 17th) until 12:15pm.

ABC/Time Out is filming coverage of our special offerings for kids including our coloring sheets and (we hope) local illustrator Eric Shawn Cherry. They will be filming Wednesday (May 19th) at 12:30 and we INVITE ALL parents with kids to come in and be on camera. Free fries and drinks! Please arrive promptly at noon.
