Real eyes realize real lies, but the opening of a Tupac-themed pop-up restaurant is far from myth.
To honor the 20th anniversary of the rapper's untimely death, California burger joint Take 3 Burgers partnered up with Sam Hansen, a marketing director for the Grizzlies, the local minor league baseball team and a former merch designer for Kanye to roll out Tupac's vision for a musician-inspired cafe on Sept. 13.
The Powamekka Cafe, once captured by Tupac on a legal pad, was designed to be a culinary "hideout" for those hoping to escape the world's "cold reality." Featuring an ankh logo with a crown and a moon, the restaurant would have also incorporated recipes from fellow musicians.
Take 3's menu will include a "California Love" chicken sandwich, Hennessy apple-butter wings, a “Mac-and-Cheeseburger,” and Thug Passion Cake Pops, though we'd be most excited about using the restrooms for "playaz" and "divaz." Local artists will also be performing covers of the legend's music.
The pop-up will be around for one day only, so congratulations, Fresno residents. You get to enjoy all the fun this time.
