The award-winning New York City burger joint Black Tap, which now has outlets in California, Nevada and internationally, has headed east for the summer and is offering a one-of-a-kind pop-up experience called “CrazyShake by Black Tap” at The Clubhouse at East Hampton Indoor Tennis. Beginning Friday, June 18, Black Tap owners and husband-and-wife team Chris Barish and Julie Mulligan offer a new dessert-only concept at The Clubhouse featuring their world-famous “CrazyShake” milkshakes, classic shakes and brand-new desserts including the “CrazySundae” and the “CrazyCone,” expanding Black Tap’s whimsical take on even more ice cream treats.
“We are so excited to bring ‘CrazyShake by Black Tap’ to the Hamptons this summer,” says Barish. “Julie and I grew up spending our summers out East, and are thrilled to test this new concept with our fans that know and love Black Tap, as well as those who haven’t tried us out yet.”
New menu additions will include the “S’mores CrazySundae,” which is made with vanilla soft serve, graham crackers, marshmallow fluff, hot fudge, chocolate chunks and a toasted s’mores sandwich served in a playful clear Chinese takeout box, and the “Pebbles CrazyCone” made with vanilla soft serve in a waffle cone with a vanilla icing and mochi rim and topped with a Fruity Pebbles-Rice Krispy treat and Fruity Pebbles sprinkled on top. The Black Tap team will put new spins on its flagship desserts as well like the “Vegan Black ’N White Cupcake Shake,” made with a vegan cupcake in lieu of a full slice of cake. In addition, “CrazyShake by Black Tap” will regularly feature special shakes and desserts throughout the summer. All menu items will be served in a to-go format.
Mulligan adds, “This is the first time we’ve introduced new desserts beyond our over-the-top ‘CrazyShakes,’ and we can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks. Summer in the Hamptons is all about spending time with friends and family, and what better way to do that than with an ice cream treat from Black Tap?”
“CrazyShake by Black Tap” will operate Friday to Sunday from June 18 through September 6. The Clubhouse at East Hampton Indoor Tennis is at 174 Daniel’s Hole Road in East Hampton. The pop-up is open Fridays and Saturdays 3 to 11 p.m. and Sundays 3 to 9 p.m. Visit blacktap.com for details.
