Shake Shack to Offer 5 Special-Edition Burgers (June 9-13)

Shake Shack is celebrating its 10-year anniversary next week by kicking off a five-day series of celebrity-chef-created burgers, with a different patty available each day of next week at the original Madison Square Park location. The lineup includes burgers by Daniel Boulud, David Chang, Andrew Zimmern, Daniel Humm (Eleven Madison Park, The Nomad) and April Bloomfield. The burgers will sell for $8.50 each, and Shake Shack will donate $1 from the sale of each to Madison Square Park Conservancy and NYC Parks.

Got stuck at work and gave up on this. No wait at Larb Ubol, but very happy to see them busy

Ziggy, head for Cull and Pistol as this weekend they are Celebrating Lobster Week or is it month and featuring a foot long Lobster Roll with a quarter pound of lobster! Worth battling tie crowds for if you are in the mood.

The lines today look massive. Don't think i will be getting anything with my usual strategy. I will try still.I guess i will be in line before Shake Shack opens tomorrow.

Also, wasn't into today's goat burger that much anyways.

Love this

"MIT-based long-line expert Richard Larson writes that the sight of lots and lots of people filing up hours in advance for a hamburger that costs $8.50 may seem weird and horrible, but it may be totally different for the line-waiters.

"People's willingness to wait is in some sense proportional to the perceived value of the service they are waiting for," he writes. "So the wait is not drudgery but a fun-filled life experience, most likely a life-memorable event. How many days in our lives have such events?"

So i went there at 8 pm and I was told that all the burgers were sold by 3:30. The lines started forming at 8 am. Let see what happens tomorrow. I am planning on going in early to stand in line. I really wanna try tomorrow's Humm burger.
