NEW YORK, NY – This Valentine’s Day, head on down to the Love Shack! In a pairing for the ages, Shake Shack and famed music group The B-52s have teamed up to create the Love Shack Shake ($5.99): a strawberry blonde milkshake topped with whipped cream and glitter sprinkles. 

Inspired by The B-52s’ cult classic “Love Shack,” the Love Shack Shake will be available in select NYC, LA and Atlanta Shacks from Friday, February 9th—Sunday, February 18th

The sweetest part? The Love Shack Shake will help make a loving and life-changing match. For every Love Shack Shake sold, Shake Shack will Give a Dog a Job® by donating $2 to Canine Companions for Independence, a non-profit that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and a lifetime of support entirely free of charge. 

In NYC, the shakes will be available at the Upper East Side (154 East 86th St) and Upper West Side (366 Columbus Avenue) Shacks. In LA, the shakes will be available at the Hollywood (6201 Hollywood Blvd) and West Hollywood (8520 Santa Monica Blvd) Shacks. In Atlanta, the shakes will be available at the Buckhead (3035 Peachtree Road NE, Suite A146) and Perimeter Mall (4400 Ashford Dunwoody Road, Suite 3025) Shacks. Fun fact: the B-52s formed in Georgia in 1976 and performed their first concert on Valentine’s Day! 

“At Shake Shack, music is in our DNA—and The B-52’s ‘Love Shack’ holds a particularly special place in our hearts,” said Shake Shack Culinary Director Mark Rosati. “Between the band’s Georgia roots and the song’s many glitter references, there was no shortage of inspiration for the Love Shack Shake.” 

“We’re shakin’ with excitement to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the Love Shack Shake and even more excited to support the great work of Canine Companions for Independence,” said Kate Pierson of the B-52s.
