Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer in New York City is on a mission to satisfy your sweet and savory cravings.

While the eatery is known for its burgers and beers (you know, in case the name didn’t tip you off), the Manhattan restaurant, with two locations, is garnering attention for its wide selection of ridiculously decadent milkshakes.

And you’ll have to believe us when we say Australia’s Pâtissez café, another concocter of whimsical milkshakes, has got nothing on these mile-high, calorie-packed beauties.

While they found a permanent home at Black Tap over a year ago, the shakes in question have taken over social media in recent weeks — with customers posting photos of the over-the-top creations, which include Birthday Cake, Cotton Candy, Cookie Dough and S’mores shakes, just to name a few.

What makes these shakes so striking, aside from the obvious (they’re milkshakes; they’re striking by nature — duh!) is the fact that each glass is packed with whole ingredients such as a slice of cake for the Birthday Cake concoction and a whole caramel apple for the Caramel Apple mixture. Keep scrolling to see the most memorable picks among the bunch.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
