Want to be among the first to run on the soon-to-open Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk? On October 1st, Schuylkill River Development Corporation and Friends of Schuylkill Banks will be opening it up one day before its public debut to 200 lucky runners.
Ok, so people are saying that summer is winding down. Labor Day is right around the corner, the kids are all going back to school, the grocery stores are already full of Halloween candy. But the surest sign that we’re in the final throes of the season? Corn dogs are back at Shake Shack.
Just like they did last year, the Shake Shack crew will be adding corn dogs and a Peach Pie Oh My concrete to the menu, starting Friday. They will only be available (along with pints of Shack X IPA) through Monday, September 1. After that they, like summer 2014, will only be a memory…

Don your red, white and blue and head over to Shake Shack to celebrate America’s independence and the highly-anticipated return of July 4th Weekend at Shake Shack Philly.
Beginning today, July 3rd through July 6th Shake Shack in Center City, University City, and King of Prussia will be serving up fan favorites like the Shack Corn Dog, a Vienna all-beef hot dog dipped in Shack-made corn batter and served with Rick’s Picks sweet corn relish ($4.50). Don’t forget to finish off your meal with the oh so patriotic and oh so delicious Blueberry Pie Oh My Concrete. This blue and white dessert is a vanilla frozen custard blended with a slice of Shack-made blueberry pie (Single: $4.25/Double: $6.50).
Happy Birthday America and a happy 10 years to Shake Shack!

Actually, it’ll be two years tomorrow, which is why the Center City Shake Shack will be throwing itself a party, complete with a 1-day-only concrete made with pieces of its birthday cake from Termini Bros.
And lest you forget, tomorrow is also launch day for the Marc Vetri / Shake Shack collaboration burger–the Carbonara Burger–at all Philly-area locations.
The concretes are $4.25 for a half, $6.50 for full-size.

Shake Shack has announced their first ever chef collaboration burger and it is with Philadelphia’s own Marc Vetri.
In celebration of The Vetri Foundation’s upcoming Great Chefs Event on June 10th, the three local Shake Shack locations (Center City, University City, King of Prussia) will offer the Carbonara Burger from June 6th to June 15th.
The Carbonara Burger starts with the standard Shake Shack burger meat from Pat La Frieda and is topped with bacon, pecorino cheese, black pepper and a sunny side up egg.
The burger will cost $6.75 and a dollar of each Carbonara burger will be donated to the Vetri Foundation.
Vetri said “it is truly a privilege to be a part of Shake Shack’s first-ever burger collaboration, and the Vetri family is extremely honored at their generosity towards our foundation.”
Yeah, that’s right. Starting today, and running through Monday, May 26, area Shake Shacks are serving up deep-fried corn dogs with sweet corn relish and Pecan Pie Oh My concretes (vanilla frozen custard blended with a slice of house-made pecan pie). So it looks like summer is finally here at last.
Get ‘em while they last. And a happy long weekend to all.

Over on the Philadelphia magazine news blog, they’re talking about Ryne Sandberg‘s claim that he got food poisoning from eating at Shake Shack in New York. This, needless to say, got Jon Stewart a little steamed and, as the man is wont to do, he turned his giggly rage once more on Philly, cheesesteaks, Rocky, Philadelphia Cream Cheese and the Phanatic.
It’s a solid rant. I particularly like the part toward the end when he cracks up and mouths how much he really likes our signature sandwich of “beef scraps” and Whiz.
“Philadelphia Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg and New York Mets first baseman Lucas Duda both came down with food poisoning over the weekend at Citi Field, and both said Tuesday that they believe a hamburger from Shake Shack was the cause,” ESPN reports.
That would be the Shake Shack in New York, for the record. The restaurant jumped into damage control.
This is the third year of Shake Shack’s Great American Shake Sale and in 2012, raised $135,742 for No Kid Hungry. Last year raised $285,862 and this year the goal is $300,000.
Your post-Broad Street plans just got infinitely more awesome, runners. After you have your free beer at McFadden’s, head over to FDR Park, where Philadelphia Runner, Shake Shack, Philadelphia Brewing Co. and the Fairmount Park Conservancy are setting up a post-Broad Street Run tailgate party with—you guessed it—free beer.
