We’re about all things green (well, technically Figo mint, a.k.a. our brand color) – but also because St. Patty’s Day is quickly approaching. It’s also one of our favorite holidays here in Chicago – I mean com’on, they dye the entire Chicago River green for the occasion, and not to mention there are three parades held in various of the City. You can’t help but get into the Irish spirit on St. Patrick’s Day around here.
In preparation (and always looking for any excuse to celebrate), we held an Irish toast with Guinness and Shamrock Shakes. Naturally, we had to include our pets in on the action by making them a pet-friendly version of the ever-famous Shamrock Shake. We encourage you to treat yo’self to the OG shake – but keep it healthy and minty for your pup.
Enjoy the St.Patty’s Day celebrations, and don’t forget to rock your (Figo) mint! Sláinte!
