Get a Free Burger at Shake Shack Tomorrow — But…

T o celebrate the opening of location number 100 in the history of Shake Shack, the first 100 guests at each location worldwide — except at stadiums and ballparks — will receive free of charge what is known as a single ShackBurger starting at 10:30 in the morning in the United States on Tuesday, August 16, 2016.

Get a Free Burger at Shake Shack Tomorrow — But…

If a single ShackBurger is not available, guests will receive a burger of equal or lesser value — but this promotion apparently will be in effect for only 90 minutes, as it seems to end at noon; and some locations may be more crowded than others during that time tomorrow.

Brief History of Shake Shack

Here is a brief history of the company, according to its official press release:

The company sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan, created by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG) to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation “I ♥ Taxi.” The cart was quite the success, with Shack fans lined up daily for three summers.

Shake Shack was officially born in July 2004 when USHG won the bid to open a permanent kiosk in the Park. Its green architecture was designed to make it harmonious with the park and its surroundings. An instant neighborhood fixture, Shake Shack welcomed people from all over the city, country and world who gathered together to enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of classic American fare in a majestic setting.

Summary

Even though there is a location within driving distance of where I am based, I have never dined at a Shake Shack — nor do I have any innate desire to do so — so I cannot tell you whether or not this promotion is worth the potential trouble of participating in it.

I will leave that to the unofficial expert of hamburgers at BoardingArea: Michael W. of Michael W Travels… who has multiple reviews of experiences at Shake Shack locations — including this review in Brooklyn in 2011 where he scored a brief interview with Marty Markowitz, who was then its borough president.

At The General Muir restaurant in Atlanta, I had the pleasure of trying out a hamburger with pastrami with Michael, as reported in both my review and his review

…but in the meantime, I hope that you score that free burger at Shake Shack tomorrow.
