Muppet bar opens in San Francisco's Mission District

muppet barWakka, wakka, wakka (sorry, I couldn't resist). SFist reports that San Francisco's much-anticipated muppet-themed bar, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, has at last opened its doors. Located in the hipsterfied but culturally diverse Mission District, the bar is owned by the same group responsible for several other popular City watering holes.

"Mayhem" will serve infantilized pub-style food (Sample item: fried chicken with a jelly doughnut, although there's allegedly a burger garnished with ghost pepper--the world's hottest--as well, which would be pretty messed up to serve to a kid, in retrospect...).

The bar had a soft opening last week ("It's a nice place to sit and have a can of Bud on a Wednesday night," reports neighborhood daily Mission Mission). The interior is apparently a work in progress; there's a distinct lack of Muppet memorabilia, but word is there's more decor to be done and Jameson on tap is coming soon.

While I'm not sure how the Muppet's correlate with drinking your face off, like most people, I have a deep fondness for the show (especially those chickens!). Whether or not that encourages patronage is anyone's guess, but the Mission embraces quirkiness. Here's looking at you, Dr. Teeth.
