It’s been seven hours and 15 days since we first heard about this blowout, week-long Shack Shack tenth anniversary thing, and, well, it’s been a strange five days of spectacular lines, goat meat, Champagne, ping-pong, pulled pork, free hot dogs, shrimp patties, and a giant cake the size of a subcompact car. Today marks the final day of festivities and the arrival of April Bloomfield’s “Breslin Burger,” which has custom-blend beef, applewood-smoked bacon, and Tickler English cheddar sauce. It looks good, and is probably almost sold out.

Shake Shack chefs can make us stand in line for hours for a burger, but they can’t really play ping pong. pic.twitter.com/bqs7MCCBdE— Ana Colón (@anavcolon) June 13, 2014
