-Thank You For Being a Friend
If you know me at all, you know that I.LOVE.GOLDEN.GIRLS. For me, Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose are absolutely, 100% #SquadGoals. I have all the seasons on DVD and dream about having late-night cheesecake rendezvous with the gals while listening to “Picture This…” stories from Sophia. It is —- that I must impress upon you the seriousness of this news: There is a GG-themed cafe opening in Manhattan! THIS IS NOT A DRILL
It is called Rue’s Cafe (a homage to Rue McClanahan, who played Blanche in the series), and was started by a friend of the actresses. Here are some additional details about it. This comes on the heels of another VERY important announcement about a Saved by the Bell-themed pop-up restaurant in Chicago. So basically….BYE GOING ON SOME TRIPS
