Commemorating the Declaration of Independence and the formation of the United States of America, the Fourth of July holiday is renowned for its lavish fireworks displays, street parades and family barbecues. These venues are pulling out all the stops in celebration of Independence Day in Dubai this year.
In celebration of the Fourth, Black Tap has transformed their famous CrazyShake into an all-American dream. The limited-edition shake features vanilla ice cream, a frosted vanilla rim with white and blue sprinkles, a slice of cake and a cherry on top. They will also offer a Wagyu Truffle Hot Dog for the celebrations, one foot-long and topped with truffle cheese sauce, hot cherry pepper relish, crispy onions and served with fries.
