For whatever it matters: I was at Highland Park's McDonalds on 2nd Street last night. A friend ordered the Shamrock Shake only to learn they have stopped offering it for the season. We just looked back in disbelief, especially since St. Patrick's Day was the very next day. Could not get a clear explanation if this was a planned cessation or they ran out of Shamrock Shake mix. It just seemed odd not to continue through St. Patrick's Day.
FWIW,the Arctic Orange Shake is back at McDonald's. Not as good as the ones I made when I worked at DQ,but those days are long gone.
It’s more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use
long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like
“What about lunch?”

"... a good dinner is of great importance to good talk. One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well."
