A new venue in Old Town dedicated to wild and colorful milkshakes is scheduled to open sometime in July, Alexandria Living Magazine reported.

The Crazy Mason is a self-described milkshake bar coming to 716 King Street and features not only a variety of standard and unique milkshakes but several vegan options. Some are claiming it’s better than yours.

The chain started in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, in 2020 and the Alexandria store will be the chain’s 10th location.

Alexandria Living Magazine reported that the opening is around six weeks away.
