Food Review: Shake Shack’s Shacktoberfest

shacktoberfest

Back in 2013, Kim, Lucas and I headed to Munich for Oktoberfest. We had a lot of fun jumping at the festival. With Lucas coming along, I answered the questions, should you take your toddler to Oktoberfest.

So, you can’t make it to Munich to celebrate Oktoberfest, why not celebrate at home?

My favorite fast- casual burger joint Shake Shack likes to celebrate by hosting their very own Shacktoberfest! Continue reading Food Review: Shake Shack’s Shacktoberfest

Shake Shack’s 9th Annual Shacktoberfest: Oct 3-12

If you couldn’t make it to Munich for Oktoberfest, why not celebrate at what I’d consider my favorite burger mini-chain in the country.

Shake Shack’s Shacktoberfest returns today, October 3rd through the 12th.

This will be the 9th annual Shacktoberfest. I’ve stopped by during the past two years. Find out about my experience: Shacktoberfest, An Alternative to Oktoberfest. Continue reading Shake Shack’s 9th Annual Shacktoberfest: Oct 3-12

Kim, Lucas and I had an amazing experience in Germany. (Check back for posts soon.) The main purpose for our visit was to finally get to experience Oktoberfest.

Last year we couldn’t get to Munich for the big event so we attended an event inspired by it- Shacktoberfest! Check out my post about it here.

Shacktoberfest is back at Shake Shack from today- October 4 through October 13 with a special Oktoberfest menu. It will be the 8th annual event.

Shacktoberfest, An Alternative to Oktoberfest

I do not have a bucket list- I actually hate the term and idea of them. However, there are some places, events and experiences that I’d love to do.

One of the top events I’d love to attend is Oktoberfest. I’ve been to Munich, got to experience the local beer scene and really enjoyed the city. I rarely return to a city or country I’ve already visited but for Oktoberfest I’d go back to Munich in a heartbeat.

This year I had a break from work coinciding with Oktoberfest. I found out about it pretty much last minute. I considered trying to get to Germany for Oktoberfest but there were a couple of problems with this plan- Kim was not off from work and flights were very expensive or not available with miles. After weighing my options, I gave up on the idea of going this year and figured that I would eventually get there.

Oktoberfest is a Munich event celebrated all around the world. There were various events going on in the New York area but they didn’t seem to fit our schedule. Then I read about a fun, little event at one of my favorite burger places- Shake Shack.
