New Simpsons Theme Park Will Feature All Your Favorite Foods From Springfield

Posted By on Fri, May 24, 2013 at 1:30 PM


We didn't realize how much we wished we could drink at Moe's, eat a Krusty Burger, visit the Duff Brewery, get a Squishee at the Kwik-E-Mart, and have all manner of Simpsons adventures until we read on Eater this morning that Universal Studios plans to open a real-life Springfield this summer. There will be real-life Duff Beer brewed exclusively for the park, as well as all the iconic Simpsons culinary adventures. Per the press release:

For the first time ever - anywhere - fans will be able to walk down Fast Food Boulevard and visit the places that helped Springfield stake its claim as "Shelbyville by the Sea." They will be able to grab a Krusty-certified meat sandwich at Krusty Burger, snatch the catch of the day at the Frying Dutchman, get a slice at Luigi's Pizza, go nuts for donuts at Lard Lad, enjoy a "Taco Fresho" with Bumblebee Man and imbibe at Moe's Tavern.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
