Kauai was ahead of the crowd back in the day! 1888.

[Found under: “LOCAL & GENERAL NEWS.”]

OUR old and esteemed friend Spitz returns to home to Nawiliwili, Kauai, this evening, after a stay of several days in the city. Mr. Spitz takes along a milkshake machine with him, and will hereafter treat the people of Nawiliwili to “shakes.”

[The first mention of milkshake machines in the newspapers seems to occur only a year earlier, in The Decatur Herald (Illinois), on 8/9/1887.]
