According to the Herald, the owner of NYC's Shake Shack has submitted a proposal to bring one to the Boston Common. His proposal is one of two that are competing for the space. Sounds exciting to me.
New York City’s beloved Shake Shack is angling for a spot in the heart of the Hub as the owner of the bustling Madison Square Park burger spot is one of two restaurateurs pitching the city on a much-needed new eatery on Boston Common.
That puts the Madison Square Park landmark in head-to-head competition with Boston-bartender-turned-Gotham-restaurant-mogul Jeffrey Mills, whose rival bid envisions an eatery called The Common House featuring “all the cheap eats synonymous with New England.”
I've never actually eaten at Shake Shack. Every time I happen to be close by, the line is ridiculous. So, I always end up leaving. I am however planning a trip down to NYC in early December. I'm thinking it may be time to bite the bullet, stand in line and give it a try. Especially since there's a chance it might be coming to Boston.

PS. Shake Shack is welcome in our beloved city. The rats though that are always in that area can stay in NYC. We have enough of those of our own.
