It's burgermania Shake Shack style as Danny Meyer's empire celebrate its 10th anniversary with a weeklong throwdown. Top culinary wonders including David Chang, Daniel Boulud and April Bloomfield have signed on to collaborate with Shake Shack to create special edition burgers. Each day throughout the festivities, a different chef's burger is available for purchase at the original Shake Shack in Madison Square Park. Feast on such creations as the Momofuko Shrimp Stack on Tuesday, or the AZ Cabrito Butter Burger on Wednesday. Come June 12th, the actual birthday of the burger palace, Madison Square Park plays host to live music by The Tall Pines, Ski Lodge and Miniature Tigers, and a special hot dog cart makes the rounds with complimentary "pay what you'd like" Shack-cago Dogs. And as no birthday is complete without a cake, Dominque Ansel is whipping one up and it will be given out in the early evening, while supplies last.
