Filmmaker and geek icon Kevin Smith is bringing Mooby's, the fictional fast-food chain from the "Askewniverse," to Comic Con International in San Diego next month. The pop-up will take place at the Tin Roof (401 G Street in San Diego), and will offer both standard and vegan options for fast-food aficionados. The joint will be open from July 21-24 (11am-7pm daily Thursday-Saturday; 11am-3pm on Sunday), and Smith has tapped Thrillist's #1 plant-based meat, Unreal Deli, to provide the vegan options all week long. Smith himself has also created a mystery vegan menu item, which will be on the menu alongside options like burgers and cheesesteak.
The Mooby's pop-up, which has already appeared in numerous cities and even been able to order via food kits by Goldbelly, features theming to mimic the film version of the restaurant and allows fans to buy exclusive Mooby's merch onsite.
If you're going to be at Comic Con (or just live nearby and are willing to brave the crowds), you can book your timeslot now for $30. Each ticket includes a Mooby's Meal with your selections of a Moo Main + Salt Lick Side. Mooby's Soda, Mooby's Chronic Con Beer, additional salt lick side items, desserts, and new merchandise will also be available for purchase at the pop-up.
Fans can purchase up to four tickets online, but if you've got a bigger group, that's not a dealbreaker: walk-ins will also be welcome at the con.
Tickets are also available now for several live podcast recordings the week of the convention, which will be taking place in the evenings at the Mooby's Pop-Up at Tin Roof. The Unofficial SDCC Blog did a great job of rounding up the official write-ups of each, as well as links for tickets, which you can see below. Tickets will be limited, as the venue has about a 150-200 seat capacity.
