Shake Shack now open year-round?

I'm very excited about this news. I've always wanted go there, but I only get back home to NY during the holidays when it's closed. I'm hoping that the lines won't be quite as long in the cold weather, but New Yorkers are a hardy bunch and the tourists will be out in full force at Christmastime as well. Either way, I'm planning to make a burger run when I'm home in December! Would love to read reports about the winter version of Shake Shack. I'm assuming the shakes will be replaced with variations of coffee and hot chocolate.

  1. Where did you hear this news?

    I've seen them have hot chocolate when it's colder out, but it's usually a special. Never seen them have coffee.

    They closed on December 1 in 2006. December 23 in 2005.

      my boyfriend had lunch here monday and he asked about when they closed for the season, the employee told him they weren't closing this year. i forgot to spread the good news.

    2. Please provide a reliable source for this otherwise-outlandish promise of cold-weather burger bliss.

        "Beginning Monday, November 5th, Shake Shack will be open daily from 11:30 AM-6:30PM"

          Is it possible though that that is just a change to their closing time?

          Rumor here:

            Ah, good point. Sometimes you see what you want to see...

          confirmed by asking last week when i was there. hummmm, maybe i should go by today, just to "confirm" again? ;-)

            They're going to be open year round with heat lamps to fight the cold weather.

              Yes, please! And if you can get it in writing, that would be nice, too. :)
