After trying a juice cleanse for a whole 23 minutes, I realized something quite remarkable: milkshakes taste a lot better. And though it may be wishful thinking to wait for a study that proves milkshake cleanses are healthy, I will most certainly do that waiting with a shake by my side. And what better time to enjoy one than during the summer when birds are chirping, kids are playing and you can be slurping. Here’s a list of some of our favorite spots for a treat that’ll make you question why juice cleanses are even a thing.

Top Chef runner-up Spike Mendelsohn is in town today for the grand opening of his Good Stuff Eatery. The 18th Street restaurant had a good crowd this afternoon but was doing an admirable job keeping up with curious first day eaters who lined up to the door.
The burger spot reflects Mendelsohn’s cocky persona with a painted wall stating “Food So Pure You’ll Think It’s Amish” to staff t-shirts thanking Shake Shack, Bobby’s Burger Palace and others while stating “we’ll take it from here.”
Mendelsohn himself, spent time working behind the counter, tossing trash away and also mingling with guests like you'd expect a celebrity to do.
And there was lunch »
It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn’s Good Stuff Eatery is finally getting ready to open the doors. The big day? Tuesday, June 24. There’ll be a bunch of press stuff (with his Spike-ness in attendance) starting at 10am, and then the doors officially open to the public at 11am for burgers, hand-cut fries and milkshakes.
There’ll be prizes, of course. The first 100 customers in line get a chance to win a pair of tickets for a Celebrity Cruises trip this summer (on which they’ll be joined by Spike, so…awesome?). And the first 1,000 customers will get to grab prizes out of a “Bowl Of Good Stuff.” You know, kind of like when you go to the dentist. Said Good Stuff includes tee shirts, signed copies of the Good Stuff cookbook, VIP cards, tickets to various sporting events and things like that.
But seriously, 1,000 customers? That's gonna be one helluva line.
