Gwar is known throughout the Universe for their outrageous stage show, irreverent humor and head pounding music, but now they have turned their demented eye to the food service industry and plan to open a restaurant later this summer in Richmond, VA.
The band has joined forces with Travis Croxton, Richmond's restaurateur of the year 2013, to bring to life one of the last dreams of their fallen singer, Oderus Urungus, the GWARbar!
According to sources: GWARbar will not merely be a place to gorge on delectable food-stuffs whilst hoisting endless flagons of liquid glee...it will not be just a shrine and showcase to the undeniable visual impact of the world's most infamous metal band...the opening of the GWARbar will be the singularly most important culinary event to occur since the invention of the spoon!
BalSac, the Jaws of Death, Gwar's guitar player and also designer of the notoriously tasty "GWAR-B-Q Sauce", is bringing his supreme knowledge of intergalactic cuisine to the GWARbar, and has designed a bill of fare. Gwar has also solicited help and advice from many of their friends in the restaurant industry including Top Chef master Bryan Voltaggio, who said, "Obviously this place is going to be awesome! I can't wait for it to open!"
An indiegogo campaign has been launched to help raise funds for the renovation of the current building into the wonderland of food and beverage that will be known as the GWARbar. By contributing, you can earn anything from Gwar's undying scorn ($1) to a bar stool with your name on it at the bar ($1000)!
