The Party Line

March 21 marks the annual spring reopening of Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack (at Madison Square Park; 212-889-6600). What to do while you wait in line for a Shack Burger:

  1. 1. Order a Pizza

    You are technically within the delivery zone of Waldy’s Wood-fired Pizza and Penne.

  2. 2. Read a Book

    At 622 pages, New York contributing editor Kurt Andersen’s new Heyday is just right.

  3. 3. Make Dinner Reservations

    Per Se takes reservations up to two months in advance of the calendar date, and then there’s always Morandi.

  4. 4. Develop a Hobby

    The ancient art of ship-in-bottle building comes to mind.

  5. 5. Start a Petition

    Demand the return of the excellent spicy buffalo brats and the Shake Shack breakfast, at which there was never a line.
