Kid-tested and parent-approved, Milkshake is no ordinary tasty treat. It is, in fact, a popular kids rock band, born out of Baltimore and evolved from the indie-rock band Love Riot. Singer Lisa Mathews and guitarist Mikel Gehl, both members of Love Riot, formed the kids rock band about five years ago after having children. The band, which plays a concert at Beth Tfiloh Congregation on Sunday, has just enough kid appeal and rock 'n' roll spunk to please everyone. Songs, often about child-and-parent love or about life from a kid's-eye-view, are delivered with a rocking, spirited and fun edge.

At The Yard, the new sports pub located inside the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor at Camden Yards, sits a miracle; a modern marvel; a Holy Grail of sorts for beer aficionados: a milkshake … Made. With. Beer. Sweet Baby Jesus! Well yes, it does earn the exclamation but that's also the name of this 8th wonder of the world, officially: The Sweet Baby Jesus Adult Milkshake. It was an industry contest - not divine intervention - that inspired bartender Jeff Crawley to concoct this holy creation.

Maryland's favorite kiddie rock band, Milkshake, is back. “Got a Minute?” is the Grammy-nominated band's fifth album, and it's chock-full of sing-along melodies that rock more than the average kids' tune. Founding members Lisa Mathews and Mikel Gehl worked with a crew of talented musicians -- including their own kids, Eric (Gehl's 11-year-old son) and Jesse (Mathews' 12-year-old daughter), recording more than 30 feel-good songs. With positive messages and a range of styles, from the pop-inspired “Girls Wanna Dance” to the countrified “Workin' Kid,” Milkshake will keep you and your kids rocking in the minivan.

Now through Sunday, everyone who orders the special Ravens-inspired blueberry shake at BGR will be entered into a raffle for the chance to win the BGR nine-pound burger before Sunday's AFC conference final title game against the Patriots. Why, because it's purple. The shake, not the BGR nine-pound burger, which looks to be the approximate size of the old Lamar Hunt Trophy. There are three BGR locations in Md.

Where: 400 E. Saratoga St. When: 6 a.m.-4 p.m. every day of the week. Why: Nothing says retro date like a big, overflowing chocolate milkshake topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and sprinkles -- a milkshake that is so thick you need to eat it with a spoon. Happily, the Hollywood Diner in downtown Baltimore knows how to make them. One milkshake costs $2.60, and we recommend sharing one, no matter how hungry you are.

It's not too often you still hear the whirring and grinding noise produced by a milkshake machine.Every fast-food outlet sells something called a shake, but milk is not necessarily one of the ingredients. Fast-food shakes seem to have more to do with joint compound than what a cow provides.Milkshakes were a personal thing in the days when every corner seemed to have a drug store with a soda fountain. Some places made them to perfection, others served ones that were mediocre or flat. You either loved those made at Read's drug stores or detoured to places like Schwaab's, the fountain and sweet shop Waverly, or to Davidov's, a drug store in North Bend.

Originally, Milkshake came with an expiration date. Soon after singer Lisa Mathews founded the Baltimore-based children's band with guitarist Mikel Gehl, she drew up a 10-year plan. At the time, Mathews and Gehl each had young children, and Mathews wanted to release an album of children's music every two years. That way, their music would grow up as their kids did. If all went according to Mathews' time line, after 10 years, the kids would be too old for children's music, and Milkshake would be no more.

If there's one thing, one delicious decadent thing that Baltimore has done right for over 175 years, it's the Berger Cookie. A vanilla cookie coated in thick, delicious fudge, it's one of the richest and most satisfying treats that ever came out Baltimore, hands down. Bar none. And if there one way in this world to improve upon such a paramount dessert treat, I guess it would have to be converting it into a milkshake full of booze. Federal Hill's Abbey Burger Bistro has such a thing, appropriately enough dubbed the Berger Shake.

Summer arrives at 7:09 p.m on Wednesday. Hilariously, 98 degree weather is due to arrive at the exact same time. June 20 is National Vanilla Milkshake Day. It just is. How about an Abbey Burger Bistro shake made with Gifford's vanilla ice cream, Berger cookies, Stoli vanilla and Godiva liqueur? Or you could take on the six-pound milkshake Chick & Ruth's Delly in Annapolis, part of the restaurants Man Vs. Food Challenge . (There's a one-pound burger, too.) Pictures: Great Maryland milkshakes Or, you could head to a participating Rita's , where regular size Rita's Italian Ices are $2 all day long on June 20. Price does not include sales tax.

While Doug O'Neill has been able to enjoy everything Baltimore has to offer during the past week and a half, his time in town hasn't been devoid of controversy. The trainer of Kentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another has been accused of “milkshaking” his horses -- giving them an illegal mixture that makes them feel less tired -- four times in his career. His record has been the center of some attention on O'Neill this week, who said he will answer questions in greater detail once the Triple Crown ends and California racing officials, who have yet to announce their ruling on a 2010 incident (the most recent)

Timothy Dean may have finally found his niche - and it's at the mall. Last month, the chef, best known in Baltimore for his string of restaurants on Eastern Avenue (and his appearance on the seventh season of "Top Chef"), opened Timothy Dean Burger in the Boulevard at the Capital Centre. The vibe is fast food, but the food - burgers, fries and gourmet pizzas - is worthy of white tablecloths. Over the past few years, the celebrity chef has weathered a string of well-publicized setbacks.

When dining at Jimmy's, I often start with a foie gras appetizer, followed by a delicate seafood risotto. While I'm waiting for my first course, I tear off pieces of artisan bread and dip it in bowls of fruity deep-green olive oil. OK - I'm joking. As everyone who has ever been hungry in Fells Point surely knows, Jimmy's is not a foie gras place. Instead, the Fells Point landmark is where you'll satisfy that craving for an enormous egg-and-pork-product breakfast, a slab of homemade spinach pie or one of the best milkshakes around.

ALTHOUGH IT officially begins tomorrow, summer got started for me a couple of days ago when I sipped my first chocolate malt of the season. It happened at Hoffman's, a vintage ice-cream shop at 934 Washington Blvd. in Westminster. It was a hot Sunday afternoon, and a line of customers started at the counter and curled around to the self-service coolers that held the half gallons. The folks in line were patient. They knew the hand-dipped cones, the custom-made sundaes and the malts and shakes - two dips or three dips - would be worth the wait.

Baltimore artists registered significantly on the list of 2010 Grammy Award nominations announced Wednesday night. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's recording of Leonard Bernstein's epic, controversial music-theater piece "Mass" is up for Best Classical Album. And Milkshake, the Baltimore-based children's band, is among the nominees for Best Musical Album for Children. "I'm thrilled," BSO music director Marin Alsop said Wednesday from London. "Everyone involved did such a great job, from top to bottom, in terms of the commitment level, the quality of performance, quality of production and quality of recording."
