Did somebody say Squad Goals? We’ve partnered with The Golden Girls to celebrate Golden Girls Day in honor of our favorite ladies from the Sunshine State.
"Let me get the cheesecake and we'll talk." Some version of that line is repeated over and over on The Golden Girls — 147 times, according to Dorothy in one episode.
Cheesecake is such an integral part of the iconic TV series that it might as well be considered a main character. When Blanche, Rose, Dorothy, and Sophia have a problem they need to work out, they discuss it over cheesecake. When they have something to celebrate, they do it over cheesecake. If there's not already a cheesecake in the fridge, you can bet someone is running out to get one.
The two go hand in hand — so much so that Golden Girls Day and National Cheesecake Day both fall on July 30! This year, The Golden Girls took over Miami milkshake bar Vicky's House for a fabulous celebration of the beloved series, friendship, and, of course, cheesecake. More than 1,000 fans dropped everything to check out the one-day pop-up, lining up outside in the Florida sunshine to try a limited-edition cheesecake milkshake, snap a few pictures with the delightfully retro decor, and shop exclusive and limited edition Golden Girls-themed merchandise. Fans of all ages and backgrounds came to the event to share their love for the show. There were even a few matching outfits and Blanche costumes! Read on to see all the fun at the Golden Girls Day celebration, and find out how to recreate the over-the-top cheesecake milkshake at home. Stay golden!
