Kevin Smith to Launch Vegan-Friendly Real Life Mooby’s
Filmmaker Kevin Smith is planning to open a vegan-friendly real life version of Mooby’s—a fast food chain featured in his films, Dogma, Clerks 2, and the Jay and Silent Bob franchise.
The eatery is set to open in Los Angeles later this year, but as a preview, a pop-up version of it will be launching on April 19 and running until April 25. Menu items will be available exclusively through Postmates for the LA area, as well as via pickup.
The preview menu’s sole item (besides beer and wine) is the “Mooby Meal,” which includes Mooby’s Messy Lasagnawich (available in a vegan version), plus vegan as-is sides of Hater Totz and Chocolate Covered Pretzels. Additionally, each meal comes with an autographed card from Kevin Smith, which also entitles the customer front row slots when the eatery officially opens to the public.
Proceeds from the pop-up will be donated to No Us Without You, an organization dedicated to providing food for families of undocumented back of the house staff in need.
Supplies are limited and all is offered on a first come, first served basis. The pop-up will be operating from noon-8pm through its run.
