More Burger News: While In N Out is trying to plant their flag in the great state of Colorado, Shake Shack is about to open their doors to the highly anticipated and long awaited Denver location. After going public roughly two years ago, the company started spreading their seed like Tiger Woods in his heyday. Their locations are littered all over the country, from Dallas to Detroit, From NY to A Whale’s Vagina … And finally they’re ready to unveil their newest location in the heart of the RiNo neighborhood of the 303.

Now this shouldn’t really be Hash Sports-worthy content, but seeing as the SS corporation have taken their sweet fucking time, getting our location ready and all their ducks in a row… They’re prepared to open their doors March 21st! FINALLY! We’ve seen this date get pushed back more times than a freshman offensive lineman, but NO MORE! The wait is about over. Some things that make this noteworthy for CO is buried deep in the Shake Shack philosophy.
When starting out in Chicago, they specifically sourced most of their meats n’ shit from local Illinois companies, and small businesses… And what’s neat, is that trend will stay true to CO. While they will obviously outsource their brats n’ burgers, they are gonna use some local flare and partnerships to help spread the love for CO companies. Glazed and Confused Donut Shop and The Long I Pie Shop will both contribute to the menu (in the custard department). In addition to the local support, Shake Shack has a CO-exclusive burger that will be stacked with in-seasoned green chilies. The only sad part is they won’t be using “Stinkin Hot Green Chili” (kidding, kinda)…
So in summation, not only am I stoked to go have another round of Shake Shack (since my trip to Chicago)… but I can say it will definitely be worth the wait. Speaking of wait, I may let the lines die down before I try and get over there for a burg, but hopefully while location 1 is ripping and roaring, DIA can get the Shake Shack up and going in a much quicker fashion. Here’s to hopin.
Smoke up and enjoy your meal! #StonedAppetit
