Can’t make it to the beach but still want a taste of the boardwalk? Shake Shack has the answer. Hint: it’s golden, covered in corn batter, and it’s on a stick.
Well, vouchers for free beer and milkshakes that is. Here’s the deal: Yoga on the Banks will kick off their outdoor yoga season at 11 a.m. this Saturday with their first outdoor class of the year. And as if starting your weekend with pay-what-you-can yoga isn’t awesome enough, they’ll also have folks from Shake Shack on deck giving out vouchers to all the yogis for a free post-yoga drink — your pick of beer, wine, soda or a shake — from any Philly Shake Shack location. Pretty sweet, right? Read more »
It’s Last Call for the Shake Shack/Victory Brewing Co. collaboration, Shack Frost Ale. The weizenbock is now running on special till the beer runs out.
Pints are just $4 and pitchers (available in Center City and King of Prussia only) are $15.
Get there for a burger and beer before the flowers begin to bloom.
As they did last year, local Philly Shake Shacks are rolling out their When Irish Fries Are Smiling–crinkle-cut fries topped with horseradish cream, scallions, and bacon. $4.50 and they can be yours.
To go with those fries, the Shacks are also offering Mast Brothers chocolate-mint frozen custard (because, you know, mint is green or whatever). The fries are available starting tomorrow, and will be served through March 17. The custard is one the board from March 16 to the 22nd and will run you $3.50 for a single scoop.

Shake Shack’s 2nd Annual Winter Duathlon, hosted by the folks of Shack Track and Field, is headed our way February 18th, and you are going to want to reserve your spot right this second—trust us.
According to Shack Track and Field’s Facebook page, the event kicks off at 7:45 p.m. with a free Flywheel class in Center City. After getting your spin on, you’ll take a two-mile run to the University City Shack, where you’ll get your grub on—because hellooo, after all that spinning and running, you totally deserve some cheese fries. Oh, and did I mention your first drink is on them? I told you you were going to want to RSVP, stat.
The Shake Shack in University City is having an art contest and it works like this: from now until January 31st, anyone who feels touched by the cheeseburger muse can create an original work of Shake Shack inspired art, drop it off at the University City Shack (32nd and Chestnut) on any day of the week (and at any time except the lunch and dinner rushes, 11:30am-2pm and 6pm-8pm), and it’ll get hung on the walls.
So you guys know about the McRib, right? It’s some kind of mutant, boneless pork sandwich that McDonald’s releases on the world every now and then. People go nuts over it for a lot of reasons, but one of the big ones is that its not available all the time. It’s a limited release, and that makes the McRib special.
Shake Shack has been doing something similar for the past few months–putting their Shackmeister Burger (the first major, burger-based addition to their menu since 2012) onto menus in select locations, then pulling it off again, offering it as a special, then making it go away. But starting on January 1 of 2015, the Shackmeister (pictured above) is going to become a permanent addition to the menu of Shacks nationwide.
But there’s something special just for Philly, too.
From today, Tuesday October 28, through Friday, October 31, all Philly Shake Shack locations will be serving their Halloween specials: The Halloweenie and the Shack O’Lantern Shake.
Shake Shack’s Halloweenie is a Vienna all-beef hot dog wrapped in bacon and topped with pumpkin-maple mustard–and it’ll only cost you $4.50.
As for the Shack O’Lantern? That’s vanilla frozen custard topped with pumpkin, marshmallow and autumn spices. It’s $5.50 for one of those which, yes, means that you can score both for a ten-spot.

You’ll have to wait until you reach the end of the 50 miles to claim your free beer, but hey, totally worth it, right? And did I mention there will be free hot dogs, too? Yep: Free beer and hot dogs.
Here’s the deal: On November 1st, Shake Shack is teaming up with Breakaway Bikes for the first-ever Tour de Shack, a 50-mile bike ride that will take you to all three Shake Shacks in Philly. The ride will leave from the Center City Shake Shack, then, first stop: the King of Prussia Shake Shack. There, you can rest for a second (and refuel with a peanut butter milkshake, obviously), plus collect some sweet Shake Shack giveaways. From there you’ll go to the next and final stop, the University City Shake Shack, where you will be greeted with the beer and hot dogs mentioned above.
The muralist selected for this project is Philadelphia native David Guinn. Since 1998, Guinn has painted more than 35 murals throughout Philadelphia and other cities in North Americ,a including New York, Washington DC, and Montréal. His work has been shown in galleries and museums including The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Woodmere Art Museum, The Galleries at Moore College of Art and Design, and The Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery at University of the Arts.
The mural, titled Summer Rendezvous, “captures the whimsy and family-friendly spirit of the Shake Shack experience while paying homage to Philadelphia’s verdant parks and green spaces.”
