Holy puck! The famously fictional Stan Mikita’s Donuts restaurant from the iconic early 90s Wayne’s World film is being brought to life in Los Angeles this weekend, setting up a short run from January 27 to 29 at the LA Convention Center in Downtown.

The real life realization of the movie set is all thanks to Honda and the National Hockey League, with players and fans in town over the next few days for NHL All-Star Weekend. They’ll be bringing the coffee and doughnuts experience to Downtown starting Friday, January 27 and running through Sunday with giveaways, celebrity appearances, speaking panels, and more. They’ve even got Mike Myers talking about the comeback, so expect some big names to drop in over those few days.

Much like other one-off pop-culture restaurant attractions, the coffee and doughnuts will be free (while supplies last) — which means you should expect some mega-long lines. If you are able to get in though, it’s a fair bet to find some seriously nostalgic stuff inside, from actual Mikita memorabilia to set items from the movie Wayne’s World.

Hours for the Stan Mikita’s All-Star Cafe pop-up run 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. this coming Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
