The team of professional chauffeurs at Shack's Luxury Limousines could tell you some stories. But they don't because they're professional. Instead, they press their suits, buckle their seatbelts, and man a fleet of stretch vehicles that includes Town Cars, Escalades, Hummers, and Chrysler 300s. In the client's choice of vehicle, drivers spirit singles, groups, or demanding alien overlords wherever they'd like to go, from weddings and proms to parties and airports. Frequent rollers can sign up for membership in Shack's VIP Limo Club for regular pickups and drop-offs and access to the bar, which comes stocked with Grey Goose, Patron, champagne, or other select bottles.
