Glitter on the mattress, glitter on your milkshake… It’s the “Love Shack Shake,” baby, and it’s coming to a Shake Shack near you, just in time to get frothed and creamy for Valentine’s Day.

Inspired by the B-52’s and their late-80’s dance hit “Love Shack,” the Love Shack Shake is a sweet pink treat for Cupid’s day that’s bound to have you howlin’ with happiness—not just you, but your dog, too.

Because for every Love Shack Shake sold (with a $5.99 price tag), Shake Shack will be donating $2 to Canine Companions for Independence, a nonprofit that trains puppers to support people with disabilities.

Feelin’ the love yet?

The Love Shack Shake is a strawberry blonde milkshake, loaded with whipped cream and dusted with edible glitter, perfect for sippin’ while you’re sailin’ around in your whale-sized Chrystler on your way to Valentine’s Day dinner.

“We’re shakin’ with excitement to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the Love Shack Shake and even more excited to support the great work of Canine Companions for Independence,” said B-52’s vocalist Kate Pierson in a statement.

The limited-edition Love Shack Shake will be available from February 9th until the 18th at select Shake Shack locations in New York City, Los Angeles and Atlanta, Georgia where the B-52’s played their first-ever show back on Valentine’s Day 1976.

We’d call it full circle, but it seems more like a heart than a circle.
