A “Pop-Up” Diner Is Coming To St Louis And ‘Karen’s’ Can Now Rejoice!
The term "Karen" is now associated with a woman who behaves or is perceived as entitled, or demanding beyond the scope of what is normal. You may have seen this in a retail store or a restaurant, and it seems to be happening more and more, especially during the pandemic. The women tend to be white, and it is a way for them to use their 'White Privilege'.
Well now you will get a chance to act that way, and not get into trouble for it. Karen's Diner is coming to a secret location on Gravois Avenue in St Louis this September. According to their Facebook page, “With every insult, roast, and rude name, I can feel the huge, gaping hole in my heart grow a little smaller.”
The idea, is you can complain all you want, and the staff there couldn't care less. It is a performance for sure. You will have singing waitresses and waiters, frequent manager visits, etc. If any of you have ever heard of Ed Debevic's in Chicago, I suspect this will be a similar situation. As for those manager visits, they are described as the most "Karen, Karen" ever. Do not incur her wrath!
If you are interested, and this looks like a lot of fun, you will need to book in advance. You can click HERE to get more info and reserve your spot. There will be a fee, but it will be taken off of the bill. Your meal could include burgers, fries, shakes, cocktails, and more. There are also options for vegetarians, vegans, and non-alcoholics. Menu is below.
I would recommend booking ahead of time. As a performer myself, I think this could be a whole lot of fun. If you like the nostalgia of a 50's diner this also might be a very unique experience. If you go, take a lot of pictures, and embrace the theater of it all!
