Picture questions - where is this (if it's real), where is this burger sold, what font is in this graphic.

Identifont and Tineye didn't help much.

First one is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, Italy.

Ah! That was quick. I endorse 2bucksplus's answer about Milan.

Second one is Lunchbox Laboratory (Google: milkshakes in beakers)

Dear Lord in Heaven. I'm going to Seattle next week. Lunchbox Laboratory it is.

1.) Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery, glass dome, Milan, Italy (incidentally found through picture-googling "glass dome mall blue").

Argh. Too late. And now I want that burger.

3rd one is out of my area, but I will say that designer Jayson Weidel probably got it from FontSquirrel based on this blog entry. So I'd make an educated guess that it's "Franchise".

This is fun! do more do more.

the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan

But that blue lighting's relatively new, correct? Possibly Photoshopped.

(check the capital "G" in Franchise and compare it to "G" in Gothic on the poster)

Yeah they add lighting to the dome at Christmas.

This has the makings of being a rather neat game: "Internet Where is This?"

FWIW, I ended up at the Lunchbox Laboratory during my Seattle trip and enjoyed an Homage to Dick's Deluxe. It was every bit as delicious as the picture. I went with beer rather than a milkshake, so now I've a reason to return.
