“Good Burger” pop-up by the Saved by the Max Team

The team behind a popular Saved By The Bell-themed diner have announced a new forthcoming 1990s cultural phenom pop-up, and this time it’s for the fictional restaurant based off the comedy sketch and movie ”Good Burger. Not to be confused with the plant-based Monty’s Good Burger, this limited-run Good Burger pop-up is in anticipation for the revival of Nickelodeon’s sketch comedy show All That. It starts on July 10 on Santa Monica Boulevard slightly west of Highland, and tickets go on sale this Monday at 10 a.m. Expect Instagrammable displays, Ed’s sauce, and loyal servers repeating the key phrase, “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?”

The Good Luck Bar sign is back

Good Luck Bar’s neon sign has been returned, nearly three weeks after a group openly stole it from in front of the building early one morning. Good Luck’s former owners wanted the iconic sign back with no questions asked, and that’s exactly what happened yesterday. The bar’s former GM received an Instagram direct message from Glendale’s Museum of Neon Art indicating the sign was near LAmill Coffee in Silver Lake. The Good Luck sign was neatly wrapped and placed in a box like a present.

Coffee and kittens in West Hollywood

Has LA hit peak cat cafes? Some think not, as a new one opens today in West Hollywood. Crumbs & Whiskers is a self-described kitten and coffee lounge where Angelenos can pay between $20 and $35 to drink coffee and play with three to six-month-old old kittens for 30 or 70 minute increments. If love strikes, take a little one home.
