To celebrate the incredible World Series victory last night, Shake Shack is offering a free shake with a $20 or more purchase at all LA locations until October 30. Diners can use the code CHAMPS in the Shake Shack app or on the burger restaurant’s website when preordering to receive a free shake of their choice. Although Shake Shack isn’t from Los Angeles (it’s a transplant from New York City), this seems like a great way to curry favor with locals. LA Dodgers fans will have another reminder of the incredible season the world’s best baseball team had this past year.
