There's a 'Saved by the Bell' pop-up coming to L.A. this summer

Hold on to your hats, Bayside, a Saved By The Bell pop-up shop parody bar/diner is coming to Los Angeles, after a wildly-successful extended run in Chicago. 

The pop-up, aptly named "Saved by the Max," will feature a replica of Zack, Kelly, AC, Screech, Lisa and Jesse's favorite after-school hangout, complete with Bayside-inspired food and cocktails, including AC Sliders, Preppy BLT, Macaroni & Screech and a Kelly Kapowski monte cristo.

If the L.A. pop-up is anything like the Chicago version, we can expect full dinner service nightly along with select brunch services, and a variety of special ticketed events (think costume contents, karaoke, trivia and dance parties) including special guest appearances by folks like Dennis Haskins (Principal Belding), Ed Alonzo (Max himself) and even Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater, duh). 

The exact location, opening date and details on ticket sales have yet to be announced, but we'll keep you posted as we hear more, and in the meantime you can check out @savedbythemax to stay up to date. In the famous words of Jesse Spano, we're so excited, so excited!
