“We couldn’t be more excited to host the Mooby’s pop-up at The Depot Tavern. We’ve loved working with Kevin Smith in the past and are really looking forward to this next event. It is pretty cool to bring Mooby’s to life for fans, especially now, when we could all use a little levity,” says First Avenue General Manager, Nate Kranz.
All guests will receive a pre-ordered “Mooby’s Pick-Up Experience” which includes their choice of one Moo Main (Cow Tipper or Cow Tipper with Beyond Burger, Cock Smoker Chicken Sandwich, Cow Dong Vegan Sriracha Brat, Egga Mooby Muffin, available vegan as well) plus a Salt Lick Side (Hater Totz or Onion Rings to rule them all).
Add-ons like desserts and beverages abound, including a limited edition Mooby’s Pilsner from Indeed Brewing Company. Orders will feature timed pick-up, which ensures social distancing at The Depot Tavern.
The pop-up experience features a Jay and Silent Bob’s Merch pop-up shop with an exclusive collection of both Jay & Silent Bob and Mooby’s merchandise, including Mooby’s non-medical masks that can be pre-ordered for pick-up.
