Jay and Silent Bob’s fictional fast-food restaurant Mooby’s lands in Orlando
Boochies Snoochie, all of you.
Kevin Smith, retrograde, heart attack victim and the man behind the Jay and Silent Bob franchise (as well as the epic True North trilogy), will bring his fictional fast food Mooby’s to life when it appears in the tourist sector on next month.
So while waiting Moose jaws, the third and final entry in this troika of pipe movies, to hit theaters – sorry, theaters – we’ll just have to gorge ourselves on Mooby’s Cocksmoker chicken sandwiches, Cow Tipper burgers and Hater Totz, among other items created by LA chef Royce Burke from Secret Lasagna.
And, no, don’t expect to see Gimli sliders from defense or a version of poutine that doesn’t give a damn about Guy Lapointe.
Expect to see vegan options using Beyond Meat as well as vegan sides and candy. (Smith, BTW, has been on a plant-based diet since he suffered a heart attack three years ago.)
Additionally, Mooby’s will work with Motorworks Brewing to create a “Fun lager“for the pop-up window.
Mooby’s first appeared in Smith’s controversial film Dogma as well as subsequent features Jay and Silent Bob strike back and Clerk II, for which he served as the main framework.
Orlando is the eighth stop on Mooby’s pop-up tour, having debuted in LA last summer before moving to Red Bank, NJ; Chicago, Toronto, Minneapolis, Phoenix and Vancouver.
We can’t give you the specific location or dates for the Mooby’s Orlando pop-up yet, but we’ll let you know next week when tickets go on sale. Until then, check out Kevin Smith’s official Instagram announcement below and be sure to subscribe to Mooby’s Orlando Mailer to get early access to tickets.
And in related news, Jason Mewes (the Jay in Jay and Silent Bob) will bring Jay Mewes and his A-Mewes-Ing stories at the Orlando Improv on February 25.
Snooch at the nooch.
