Months ahead of Shake Shack's much-anticipated West Hollywood opening, the famed New York-based burger chain is doing a one-day pop-up later this month.

On Monday, January 25, Son of a Gun, the seafood hotspot from Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, will play host to the East Coast burger giant, according to Shake Shack. For the one night, they'll be serving up Shake Shack's original ShackBurger, their signature crinkle cut fries served with malt vinegar aioli and tabasco ketchup, and a whoopie pie-style Shackwich, stuffed with peanut butter frozen custard and toffee. Son of a Gun will also serve up a special tuna melt for the occasion.

They won't be taking reservations, so expect to wait in a (very) long line. Burger-hungry guests will be able to line-up before the 6 p.m. opening.

In addition to the spring opening in West Hollywood, there's also a Glendale location of Shake Shack scheduled to open later this year.

The Shake Shack pop-up will take place on Monday, January 25 and will run from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Son of a Gun is located at 8370 W 3rd St., Beverly Grove, (323) 782-9033

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story included a link to an Eater L.A. story that suggested additional pop-ups were planned ahead of the spring opening, but Shake Shake has since told LAist that no additional pop-ups are planned at this time. They also inform us that at the pop-up beer and wine will be available for purchase, along with three cocktails, the Gold Rush (Bourbon, honey, lemon), Citrus Rum Punch (Rum, orange, grapefruit), and Moscow Mule (Vodka, ginger, lime) for $8 each.
