New Yorkers love standing in lines, and we never got that Rory Gilmore article about lines to figure out exactly why. One of the most famous lines is Shake Shack, the burger chain beloved by tourists that neither shakes nor is an actual shack (discuss). Now the company wants you to get out of line and get online, and they’ll give you a free burger for it.

DNAinfo reports Shake Shack is giving away free burgers to promote its new order-ahead app: Just download the Shack App, create an account and use the promo code “shackappy” and boom! artery clogging food without having to wait in a line. (more…)

For a borough that’s often mocked as a place where everyone is mainlining quinoa while looking up whether or not their tattoo ink is vegan, Brooklyn is also pretty into piling on reliable ways to kill ourselves with diet-related heart disease and hypertension. So while it’s true that Shack Shack began in Manhattan, it only makes sense that their fried chicken sandwich is only available in Brooklyn at the moment. After all, we understand that Manhattanites just eat money these days. (more…)

Shake Shack is suddenly valued at $746 million, $200 million more than they were worth last Tuesday, and a staggering amount of money for pretty good hamburgers. Fine by us though, because they’re using their newfound wealth to play Rich Uncle Meatbags, announcing they’ll be giving away breakfast sandwiches and hamburgers today in front of the New York Stock Exchange. Inside will be men screaming “BUY!” and “SELL” and things about capital gains. Outside it’ll be snowing and you’ll be waiting for a free hamburger. Advantage: You. (more…)

Yes, you can pay this man more than eight bucks an hour.

Despite the fact that Americans eat billions of dollars worth of it every year, the profits from fast food companies don’t seem to trickle down to their employees. The fast food industry insists they couldn’t possibly pay their employees more than $7.25/hour and keep their unfulfilling food cheap, but the New York Times checked in this weekend and found that, shockingly, fast food companies can pay their employees nine, even ten dollars per hour and still stay in business.

It can be hard, we know, so if you feel like you’re missing one or both of those things from your life, we’ve got good news: burger and long line providers Shake Shack are taking their production to DUMBO next year.

So your ex-boyfriend is coming to visit you in Brooklyn for a two-week trial period to “see if he could see himself actually living here” and while you believe it’s impossible to for him to really know in such a short, pressure-cooker of a visit, you miss him and you want him to move here, so you’re entertaining the idea that this trip could seal the deal.

You two dated three years — two spent together in New Orleans, one apart when you moved to New York — until the distance became too much and you had to break up. But it turns out you still care about each other and most of your problems resulted from being apart. You both are working off the premise he’s just not that into New York, but definitely still into you. So what makes up the perfect sales pitch?  (more…)
