We're stuck in that weird part of summer where it's still a billion degrees out every day, but pumpkin spice is being shoved down our throats more and more with each passing week.

Luckily, even in this weird time of seasonal limbo, there's something to rejoice over — Shake Shack is giving out free burgers on Tuesday, Aug. 16.

Totally, truly free. All you have to do is roll yourself out of bed and tear yourself from the AC early enough to be one of the first 100 people at your local Shake Shack. The freebies begin at 10:30 a.m., which is totally doable, and you have until noon to get there — though chances are, more than 100 people will have already stopped through by then. The early bird gets the burger, as any dumpster-diving seagull can tell you.

In this case, the burger is a single ShackBurger or any burger of equal or lesser value. With all that money you save, you should probably treat yourself to a shake too. After all, what better way to enjoy the final leg of summer than with a cold shake and a juicy burger?

The giveaway is to celebrate Shake Shack's 100th location, located in Boston. Here's hoping the chain has more to celebrate in the coming year — any occasion that involves free burgers is one I want to be a part of.
