According to a story in The Courier Post, the zoning board of Evesham, New Jersey will consider an application for a freestanding building to be shared with a new Honeygrow and near a ShopRite supermarket at Marlton Commons. the intersection of routes 73 and 70.

That same day, we will find out if another Shake Shack will be opening at the Wells Fargo Center. Rumor has it, the stand will be behind Section 116 of the lower level. Take that Penguins fans.

At this time, neither Shake Shack nor the Wells Fargo Center are willing to confirm the openings. But we don’t have to deny them either. Watch this space.

The wonders of the Internet. Al Roker, NBC Today show weather guy became an Internet meme when he stuck to his guns in calling swimmer Ryan Lochte a liar as his co-hosts inexplicably defended the now disgraced swimmer. Perhaps the best part was Roker, tensely stirring his Caipirinha on air.

Well now you can keep the month of Al Roker going at least one more week as the Roker Burger is being served at Shake Shack. The Roker Burger is a patty of Shake Shack’s all-natural Angus meat, topped with Niman Ranch barbecue pulled pork, double American cheese, red-eye mayo and pickles. The burger is available now through Friday, August 26th for $7.49. A dollar from each Roker Burger sold will support No Kid Hungry in its effort to end childhood hunger in America, where one in five children are living in households without consistent access to food.
