Fellow children of the 90s, what are you doing this summer? Feel like meeting in Chicago for some AC Sliders and Belding Fries? What about a Preppy BLT or an order of Macaroni and Screech? Maybe we can wash it all down with a Lisa Turtle Milkshake, served to us by Max or Kelly.
Yeah, that’s right, this summer we can all relive our youth at Saved by the Max, a pop-up parody bar and diner inspired by the classic NBC sitcom Saved by the Bell.
For the month of June this summer, at a yet-to-be-determined location in Chicago‘s Wicker Park, a group is putting up an eatery replicating the gang’s favorite spot, The Max. Besides having a chance to take some pictures in the replica restaurant, they say there will be plenty of other fun events planned, including:
- A daily costume contest with a chance to win $100 dollars (You kept that over-sized cellphone in your basement all these years for this exact moment!)
- “Full bar with custom Bayside-inspired booze & cocktails“
- “Night time weekly events including themed karaoke, trivia, and 80s + 90s dance parties” (I consider myself a leading candidate to win “The Sprain” dance-off.)
- “Recreated scripts” and “hilarious tribute memorabilia”
This all sounds like a lot of fun, just as long as no one screws it up by opening up Saved by the Max: The New Pop Up.
What’s the best Saved by the Bell pun-related meal you can cook up? Serve it to us in the comments below.
