Speaking of long lines
From a press release:
“What’s shakin’ D.C.?! Shake Shack® is thrilled to announce it will open on Thursday, October 12th at 11 A.M. at The Wharf, the mixed-use housing, dining, shopping and entertainment developement along the District’s Southwest Waterfront. The Wharf Shack will be located at 975 Wharf St. SW, Washington, D.C.
In addition to the Shack classics, The Wharf Shack will be spinning up a selection of local frozen custard concretes: Chocolate & Chip (chocolate custard, peanut butter sauce, chocolate toffee and Route 11 potato chips), Strawberry Banana Crunchcake (vanilla custard, strawberry puree, Pollystyle shortbread and banana) and Pie Oh My (vanilla custard and slice of Livin’ The Pie Life featured pie).
What’s sweeter? The Wharf Shack will open with a one-day only burger collaboration with local favorite Gordy’s Pickle Jar. The Super Fry Frickle Burger will feature a cheeseburger topped with crispy marinated shallots, Gordy’s Thai basil pickled jalapeños, and ShackSauce – complimentary for the first 100 guests in line on opening day when doors open at 11 A.M.
Guests can wash their burgers down with local seasonal brews from DC Brau, plus brews from Angry Orchard, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Shake Shack’s exclusive Brooklyn Brewery ShackMeister® Ale. Wine lovers can enjoy a glass of Shack RedTM and Shack WhiteTM wine from Napa-based Frog’s Leap Winery.
The Shack will open with the Shack App, allowing guests to order Shake Shack exactly when they want it, right from their phone. With the Shack App, guests can select their food, choose an available pickup time and it will be cooked-to-order and timed to their arrival.
As part of Shake Shack’s mission to Stand For Something Good®, The Wharf Shack will donate 5% of sales from its Pie Oh My concrete to Casey Trees, whose mission is to restore, enhance and protect the tree canopy of Wasington, D.C. through planting, maintenance, monitoring and advocacy.
In keeping with Shake Shack’s commitment to green architecture and eco-friendly construction, The Wharf Shack’s tabletops will be made by CounterEvolution using reclaimed bowling alley lanes; chairs will be designed by Uhuru using sustainable materials; and booths will be crafted by Staach using lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.”
