After giving us their special GWAR BBQ sauce and these yummy GWAR e-cigarette liquids, comedic metal outfit GWAR are taking the next step in conquering the world’s taste buds: they’ll soon be opening their very own restaurant.
Dubbed the GWARbar, it’s slated to open in their hometown of Richmond, VA later this summer. According to the band, the restaurant was “one of the last dreams of their fallen singer, Oderus Urungus”, who passed away back in March.
Though it was created in conjunction with Travis Croxton, one of the city’s famed restaurateurs, GWARbar is far from your run-of-the-mill food joint. A press release highlights the details that make it 100% GWAR-approved:
GWARbar will not merely be a place to gorge on delectable food-stuffs whilst hoisting endless flagons of liquid glee…it will not be just a shrine and showcase to the undeniable visual impact of the world’s most infamous metal band…the opening of the GWARbar will be the singularly most important culinary event to occur since the invention of the spoon! Because the GWARbar marks the first time in the history of humans eating stuff that they shall do so by ordering off a menu designed by a chef NOT OF THIS EARTH…that’s right, BalSac, the Jaws of Death, GWAR’s guitar player and also designer of the notoriously tasty “GWAR-B-Q Sauce”, is bringing his supreme knowledge of intergalactic cuisine to the GWARbar, and has designed a bill of fare that is sure to make man or aliens swoon with epicurean delight. Let the plates of mankind be filled with the food of the God’s…at a workingman’s price! “My mother taught me the endless secrets of intergalactic cooking,” said the hulking form of Balsac as he sat down to a heaping platter of GWAR-B-Q. “And then I ate her.”
GWAR have launched an IndieGoGo project to help fund GWARbar. Perks for generous donors include a cooking class with BalSac himself and the opportunity to name your own drink. Below, watch a video about the restaurant and the campaign:
