Reports of the line at Citi Field’s Shake Shack have started coming in: “Incredibly long,” “stretched all the way to Jones Beach,” and “outrageous. If you wanted a burger from the Shake Shack in the first inning you might be eating it by the time the closer is warming up.” Actually, one of our commenters put the potential wait at two innings. A stadium rep tells us the wait doesn’t get much longer than twenty minutes, and dispenses a word of advice: Go after the fifth inning, when the crowds die down. In the meantime, there are plenty of other things to nosh on.
