SHACK ATTACK NEWS: At least two more outposts of the popular burger chain Shake Shack are planned for Denver. Shake Shack Highlands Ranch will open this summer in a yet-to-be-announced location. And Denver International Airport will get a Shake Shack by late 2018 or 2019, the Denver Business Journal reports. The new airport Shake Shack is part of a proposed Concourse B mezzanine overhaul, which also will include Denver restaurants Osteria Marco, Snooze, and Hacienda Colorado, among others. Denver’s first Shake Shack location will open at 2995 Larimer Street on March 21. [DBJ]

ON THE ROCKS NEWS: While expanding his Denver offerings to the airport (see Osteria Marco above) and the Dairy Block (see Milk Market in May), restaurateur Frank Bonanno will also pop-up at Red Rocks this concert season. The amphitheater will host a series of pop-up food events featuring local chefs inside the Ship Rock Grille, and Bonanno will be the first of them, according to 303. The magazine reports that other new food offerings are headed to Red Rocks this spring, including Biker Jim’s hot dogs and Rolling Smoke barbecue. Those stalls will be permanent fixtures, at least for this year, adding to the fries, funnel cakes, and chicken tenders also planned. [303]

CHERRY CRICKETS NEWS: A second location of the Cherry Creek burger staple is set to open in the Ballpark neighborhood on April 17. Late last year, Cherry Cricket took over the space formerly occupied by Breck on Blake at 2220 Blake Street. It will reopen in about a month after an overhaul involving a giant saltwater aquarium, The Know reports. The food menu will be the same as that of the first Cricket, with build-your-own burgers and toppings such as peanut butter, candied bacon, and corned beef. Last April, the original Cherry Cricket reopened after a four-month hiatus due to fire damage. [DP]
