Late Shake is a milkshake pop-up that only comes around in the summer. With limited flavors and Instagram-worthy packaging, it’s no wonder the spot returned for a second year.

Leave it to McBee’s to provide tasty 16-ounce shakes topped with whipped cream and candies. The spot serves up classic chocolate, vanilla, and dreamsicle shakes, as well as mint chip, cookies and cream, chunky cookie dough, and so many other specialty flavors for less than $7.
