Re: early opening for shake shack

How late is it open today since it is a day earlier than website states? I tried looking at webcam but can't tell if it's just not busy or if it's closed. Thanks!

Finally tried pretzel croissant at City Bakery--disappointed

What's the big deal about it? It's nowhere near flaky enough and the novelty of the "pretzel" otuside did not make up for the doughy unflavored inside.
Did I just eat a bad one or did anyone else have the same experience?

$1000 pizza

never had it, but it looks cheap and unsophisticated. if i were to shell out 1k for a pizza, i'd like it to look at least somewhat appealing.
