The rain has come at last, and it just so happens to be National Cheeseburger Day. Need to inhale some ShackBurgers and crinkle-cut fries to celebrate? A new Shake Shack outpost landed in University Village yesterday. And if you need a sweet treat to end your meal, the cookie shop Hello Robin has also opened a new location in the shopping center. In other burger-related news, a pop-up recreation of Tom Douglas’s sadly departed Palace Kitchen will serve the restaurant’s famous Palace Burger Royale in Ballard tonight, and the one and only Edouardo Jordan is planning a pop-up collaboration with Dick’s Drive-In. Read on for all that and more food-world updates.

NEW OPENINGS AND RETURNS
Get ready for even more Macklesm’ores: Robin Wehl Martin’s Capitol Hill cookie shop opened a location in University Village this week. The new shop will have the same 14 cookie flavors as the flagship store, and both are debuting a new salty-sweet “Back to School” flavor with dark chocolate chunks, sea salt, brown butter, pretzels, and potato chips.
