As social media manager, we saw (and craved) the milkshakes that the Peached Tortilla created during SXSW. This weekend there is a second chance to let these milkshakes become the love of your life! The pre sale tickets are all sold out but they are allowing walk ins to buy these beauties and breakfast sandwiches al la carte. Just an example of what you can expect the menu includes the “Saturday Morning,”  made with strawberry milk ice cream, fruit loops, lucky charms, cinnamon toast crunch and a breakfast donut. Saturday Morning with “The Saturday Morning”…sounds like a dream come true.
