'Saved By The Bell' themed restaurant in the worksIf you're looking for a way to express your love for Saved By The Bell, look no further than Chicago. A bar and diner based on the popular TV series is scheduled to open there for one month starting June 1.
Saved By The Max is a self-described parody pop-up shop that has attracted a lot of attention from fans of Bayside High. The organizers, who prefer to remain anonymous until the shop opens, told MeTV they've been inspired to do this for a while.
"After attending a few Saved By The Bell themed events last year, I personally left unsatisfied and thought maybe I know what people are looking for," said one organizer.
Just what are these fans looking for? According to the shop's Facebook page, the space will be custom detailed to replicate the kids' favorite hangout, "The Max." The menu will include items such as "AC Sliders," "Macaroni & Screech," and "Belding Fries." In addition to food and drinks named after characters on the show, "Saved By The Max" will host daily costume contests, karaoke and trivia contests, and 1980s and 1990s dance parties.
"The reaction from fans has been insane, beyond what we could have even thought," said the organizer. Currently, over 16,000 people on Facebook have expressed interest in going to the shop.
"[It's] making us even more excited and stepping up what we can do to make sure everyone leaves happy."
For now, the organizers will only say the shop will be located in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. They plan to announce its location via their Facebook page about a week before it opens on June 1.
