Springfield Mall shoppers were greeted this week by Marge Simpson outside the entrance to the Moe’s Tavern pop-up, writes Peg DeGrassa for the Daily Times.
The temporary bar opened last Friday on the upper level of the mall. It’s staying put until Sept. 26.
Inside, customers experience what it feels like to be in the iconic bar from the animated TV show—“The Simpsons.”
Moe’s Tavern pop-up was created by Joe McCullough at JMC Pop Ups LLC and is strictly a fan-based experience. JMC’s been at the Mall before, with its Galaxy Burger Pop Up.
The tavern features Duff D’oh! Beer brewed by Evil Genius Beer, a pool table, a Love Tester, a mock-up of Homer’s “office” and a “Simpsons”-themed menu.
Shelly Rollins of Wilmington, Del., came in honor of her late father, Sheldon, who died in December.
“My dad and I watched ‘The Simpsons’ on TV since I was in diapers,” Rollins explained. “It was ‘our’ show, one that we’d always laugh at and watch together, so I’m having a sentimental experience here. He would have loved coming to Moe’s. I’m here in his honor!”
