Extravagant Milkshakes Make Summertime Cool

BATON ROUGE, La. (THE LOUISIANA WEEKEND) - Today is May 4, 2023 a normal Thursday. For Star Wars fans, today is a day to remember all the lessons and triumphs of the Star Wars movies. The most popular phrase expressed in movie “may the force be with you,” is often said as a greeting and a goodbye between Star Wars fans. It’s no wonder that May the 4th is a day to send such greetings.

A local business, The Yard Milkshake Bar in Baton Rouge is offering May the 4th specialty milkshakes this weekend only. The shakes are offered May 4 – 7, 2023. Fans can indulge in three Star Wars themed milkshakes including That’s No Moon, Blue Milk, and Duel of the Fates. All the milkshakes have signature Star Wars edible decorations including the popular Duel of the Fates which is topped with Blue and Red Light Sabers made from Rock Candy.
