Holy moly, a "Golden Girls"-themed café is opening in New York City and we could not be more excited.
Named Rue la Rue, the eatery's owner, Michael J. LaRue, was the best friend of the late Rue McClanahan, who played Blanche in the TV series. When she died in 2010, Rue bequeathed to LaRue (get the name now?) her personal belongings and show business memorabilia, which he says the café will be decorated with. Serving soups, wraps, salads, desserts, baked treats, and wine, it will also feature a piano for live music, DNAinfo reports. Located in Washington Heights, Rue la Rue will open its doors in September.
Though LaRue's café may be the only "Golden Girls" establishment we've heard of, plenty of other themed restaurants and bars have opened their doors in homage to iconic TV shows and films. Here are 7 other places we're dying to take our fandoms to new, delicious levels.
Join the Mad Hatter's tea party at Japan's Alice In a Labyrinth.
Playing card tables and a giant tea cup make this spot a particularly whimsical ode to Alice.
Or travel to Singapore to eat at the world's first "Orange Is the New Black"-themed restaurant, a questionable idea all around.
Taking fandom two steps too far is the OverEasy diner, which has been transformed into a Litchfield Penitentiary Cafeteria replica with "gourmet prison food" served on plastic trays. Seriously.
