Tuesday, Oct. 30, is the grand opening day at Minnesota’s second Shake Shack, this time in Edina.
The follow-up to the burger chain’s Mall of America location, located at 6630 France Av. S. – that’s the northwest corner of the Southdale shopping center parking lot – has a few nods to local tastes. The menu will feature a frozen vanilla custard “concrete” blended with a slice of pie from Cafe Latte in St. Paul; 5 percent of sales of the “Pie Oh My” will benefit the Autism Society of Minnesota.
A thoughtful touch on the green front: the restaurant’s wood tabletops are fashioned from reclaimed bowling alley lanes.
For a sneak peek, drop in for the restaurant’s soft opening on Monday, Oct. 29 (from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.). Not only will you get a taste of cheeseburgers, crinkle fries, crispy chicken sandwiches and frozen custard, but all proceeds will also benefit the Autism Society of Minnesota.
And here’s an ever-important freebie alert: those who show up in a Halloween costume on Oct. 30 will receive a free pumpkin frozen custard.
