Which is actually a pretty good idea in Malibu, where the end of the pier now boasts a sun-dappled ode to classic burgers and decadent milk shakes. Ruby's Shake Shack opens Sunday to pull you back from the brink.
You'll find the Guacamole Burgers and Peanut Butter Cup Shakes in a beacon of Americana perched directly over the waves—far past the agave margaritas at Malibu Pier Club. Where maybe you'll drop in on the way back.
There's a quick takeout window if you're in a hurry to fuel up and hit the waves, but the '40s landmark has plenty of outdoor seating and some retro red leather booths inside, if you came all this way to get out of the sun. (You're nothing if not unpredictable.)
In addition to other pre-cardiology-advancement fare like chili dogs and grilled-cheese sandwiches, they've also got some secret menu items like a Beach Burger and a Malibu Mud Pie Shake. So top secret, in fact…
