First Avenue is partnering with renaissance man Kevin Smith for a nostalgic pop-up at The Depot Tavern. Mooby’s, the fictional fast food joint featured in Dogma, Clerks II, and the Jay and Silent Bob franchise will open for takeout only in December. Pre-orders go on sale November 24.

The Depot Tavern, which is owned by First Avenue, has been closed since March.

The menu is all pre-ordered. The Mooby’s Pick-Up Experience includes a choice of ridiculously named fast food dishes like a cow tipper, cock smoker chicken sandwich, hater totz and more. Add-ons like desserts and beverages abound. 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.
