Remember the Game of Thrones PUB? Now they are going multi-dimensional with an homage to another TV favorite: Rick and Morty.
Drink Company’s Wubba Lubba Dub PUB features a fully immersive experience across all three adjacent Drink Company bars and will run Thursday, August 16 through Saturday, October 6.
The latest limited-run pop-up will include, among other thrills, their take on Anatomy Park, the Cromulons’ Cygnus-5 expanse, dimension 35-C Farmer Rick’s Mega Tree farm, a gang of life-sized Meeseeks that have lived entirely too long and, of course, Real Fake Doors.
There will be dozens of additional Rick and Morty Easter eggs for superfans to discover throughout the space, including a recreation of Rick’s garage-turned-lab, a reverse giraffe, and the iconic Space Cruiser. (There will also be a special entrance for costumed Ricks, who I guess, can bring their Morty.)
“We are passionate about this show,” says Drink Company CEO and mega-fan Angie Fetherston, who, with her PUB team. “The incredible artists working on this project wanted to build an altar to a show that’s brought them and countless others so much joy. You can see our fandom and our love for the series in every amazing detail.”
The team includes graffiti-artist Andrew Funk, sculptor (and robot master) Andrew Herndon, Meeseeks-maker Maria Aspiazu and Drink Company Special Projects team Matt Fox, Adriana Salame-Aspiazu and Alisa Wyman.
At the end of the PUB’s run, the custom Rick and Morty-inspired art will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to Destination Imagination. This local non-profit organization is dedicated to a hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage and curiosity through open-ended academic challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts and service learning.
