    New York-based Shake Shack, as famous for its lines and web cam as its burgers and shakes, is adding a second Chicago location before opening the first.

    The fast-casual chain makes its Second City debut late this year at the corner of Ohio and Rush streets. On Tuesday it announced another location to open next year on the ground floor of the new Chicago Athletic Association Hotel at Michigan and Madison.

    Both locations will serve the modern-day, “roadside” burger-stand staples Shake Shack is known for: burgers, flat-top dogs made with Chicago’s Vienna Beef, frozen custard, craft beer and wine.

    Until then, Shake Shack unveiled six life-size, interactive sliding puzzles on the first location's work site wall on Ohio Street. The puzzles feature artwork by artist Noah MacMillan, known in the city for the Chicago Loop District’s iconic “Float” mural.

    "In the spirit of Chicago’s vibrant public art collection and in homage to Shake Shack’s roots as a hot dog cart art installation in New York City," organizers said, "the puzzles invite the neighboring community to engage with them."
