Last weekend Harlem Shake threw their Annual ‘Golden Cup Party’ at Harlem Shake right in the heart of Central Harlem, at 100 W. 124 Street. Be sure to stop by for their decadent burgers and shakes!
At the Golden Cup Party, we got to learn a little more about Mr. Harlem Shake, Marco Glorious Khare, who is the proud recipient of $1000, one year of free Harlem Shake burgers and generous donation to his favorite charity, Children’s Aid Society.
Here’s some fun facts about Marco:

Due to overwhelming public sentiment and an extremely close race, this year Harlem Shake honored second place winner Florence Edwards with a one-time honorary title, that of Harlem Classic, named after their best selling burger.
At 97, Florence Edwards is Harlem Shake’s most senior contestant EVER. Her very close second place and a lifetime of community contribution, led Harlem Shake to bestow this title.
Also in attendance were Ms. Harlem Shake 2016 Danielle Fontus and Ms. Harlem Shake 2015, Amanda Mobley.
Every year, Harlem Shake allows customers to decide who will be the new face of Harlem Shake through an annual competition, and customers vote in-store to decide on their favorite. It was only 2016, they also including men in addition to women. The winner receives their face on Harlem Shake’s Wall of Fame, representation of Harlem Shake on the African American Day Float, a generous cash prize to both the winner and their favorite Harlem charity, and a year of FREE burgers! The requirements are simple: Be a Harlem resident. Be between 18 and 98. And be yourself!
