When you think of musical acts least likely to open a hot dog joint, ironic metal weirdos GWAR would have to be at the top of your list. After all, the group is known for spraying fake blood on the entire audience (and that’s the least offensive thing they do.) Well, guess what? GWAR are opening a hot dog joint for discerning foodies.
Richmond, Virginia’s appropriately named GWARbar will serve house-made dogs, burgers and all manner of expertly prepared bar food. This is no downscale joint, either. The menu is being prepared by GWAR member ‘BalSac, the Jaws of Death’ who, in addition to liking scrotum-based puns, counts a few known chefs as his friends.
The food may not be disgusting, but the decor is sure to be. It’ll be made up of GWAR memorabilia, including costumes, suits of armor and, of course, original sculptures. Let’s hope they ixnay the fake blood.
