    I'm a transplant to Boston, so learn from my mistakes--there's some bizarre nomenclature here. The lowdown:

    1) If you order a milkshake, they'll give you milk mixed with flavored syrup.

    2) If you want what is called a "milkshake" in the rest of the civized world, order a "frappe."

    3) But you have to pronounce it "frap."

    Good luck!
