Good Stuff Eatery Hosts Contest for BB&T Classic Milkshake
When one thinks of the "classic," it is something of the highest quality, class or rank. Two classics came together on Friday, Dec. 6 at Spike Mendelsohn's Good Stuff Eatery in Georgetown: the BB&T Classic basketball event and an all-time favorite treat — milkshakes.
Before the annual tourney got underway during the weekend, Paul Hewitt, the head coach for men's basketball at George Mason University, faced off with Mike Lonergan and Mark Turgeon, his counterparts at George Washington University and the University of Maryland, respectively, to create the best BB&T Classic Shake.
Good Stuff provided ingredients, chef's gear and the watchful eye of Chef Spike. Former Washington Redskins Derrick Dockery and Stephon Heyer, Guy Lambert of WPGC-FM were also on hand as judges, as each competitor vied for the BB&T Classic Shake championship.
Turgeon's "Turtle Shake" was ultimately picked as the best and will be offered at Good Stuff Eatery in Georgetown for the entire month of December. The winning shake includes caramel, chocolate chips, cookies and red sprinkles.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the BB&T Classic Shake will be donated to children's charities.
"The BB&T Classic brings the best basketball players and avid sports fans together in high spirits for a great purpose: to support children's charities," Mendelsohn said. "We're excited to take the talent off of the court and put it in the kitchen to see who can handle the heat.”
