P’unk Burger Celebrates Birthday with FREE Cake Shakes This Friday
P’unk Burger, at 1823 East Passyunk, will celebrate their first birthday by giving away FREE cake shakes on Friday, February 12, 2016, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.
Last year, on Valentine’s Weekend, Marlo and Jason Dilks (also owners of SliCE) opened East Passyunk’s organic burger, fries and shake BYO. One year later, the couple celebrate their first year in business by partnering with Sweet Box Cupcakes (339 S. 13th Street) for a free shake giveaway!
Customers will enjoy a free limited edition P’unk and Sweet Box collaboration – a Raspberry Red Velvet Spodee shake made with Sweet Box’s signature cupcakes. The shake will be free Friday, but you can also purchase this decadent option during the rest of Valentine’s Weekend.
“We love Sweet Box’s flavors and quality. We wanted a cake shake that was something out of the norm that could help celebrate our birthday but also appealing to our young couples during Valentine’s Weekend,” said Marlo Dilks.
P’unk Burger will also offer a “Birthday Cake Shake” with buttercream, candy pieces and cake batter ice cream. This alcohol-free cake shake is perfect for the mini-moos!Shakes are one per person, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm. Dine-in only. During the celebration, all organic build-your-own beef burgers will be $5.00 each and fries will be discounted to $1.00. All other items are one dollar off in honor of one year.
In addition to the Friday giveaway, P’unk Burger will also have other specials for Valentine’s Weekend, including Raspberry Red Velvet Spodee shakes available for sale on February 13–14th, plus Box of Chocolates shakes made with Little Babies Ice Cream. The new Alpine Burger will also debut with sauteed portobello, swiss cheese and house garlic mayo.
“Valentine’s Weekend holds a special place in our hearts,” said Marlo Dilks. “We went on our first date and fell in love over pizza, and went on to open up our first SliCE the day after Valentine’s Day in 2004. We opened the day after to have one more day to ourselves before our business and family started. So many years later, we opened P’unk Burger that same Valentine’s weekend. We want to thank the community for their support with our free shakes – and for allowing us to carry on our love of food for generations to come.”
Since opening, P’unk Burger has provided East Passyunk and South Philly with a healthier alternative for families that want to enjoy a burger and shake, but who also want to eat better and care about what they put into their bodies. Since opening, P’unk Burger has sold over 25,000 burgers, 10,000 shakes (including shakes made with Little Babies Ice Cream) and 10,000 lbs of fries.
