Long live Tupac Shakur. In honor of 2Pac’s 20th anniversary of his passing, a restaurant has announced a pop-up eatery themed after the iconic hip-hop artist.
According to reports, the Pac-inspired spot will open September 13th in Fresno, California.
Now the Powamekka Cafe will open thanks to the efforts of Fresno burger shop, Take 3, and Sam Hansen, a foodie and marketing director for the minor league baseball team, the Fresno Grizzlies. Along with menu items culled from Tupac’s original sketches, the Powamekka Cafe will also serve some of their own original Tupac-themed dishes. (Rolling Stone)
Various restaurant items stem from Pac influences and song titles.
The one-day affair will include culinary choices like the California Love Chicken Sandwich, Hennessey Apple Butter chicken wings, a Mac-and-Cheeseburger and Thug Passion cake pops (champagne cake with Alize-flavored frosting). “Working on Powamekka Café makes me feel like I’m bringing Pac’s vision to life,” Hansen says via statement.

A few months ago, West Coast rapper Game co-signed the upcoming 2Pac biopic All Eyez On Me.
“Eh, I’m proud of the homie Benny Boom. I’m proud for Pac – I’m proud for being from the West Coast,” Game said. “That 2Pac movie is the real deal. Sh*t make that Biggie movie look like a cartoon. I don’t mean no [disrespect] but hey. That’s what it is, homie.”
Earlier this year, “Walking Dead” actresses Danai Gurira and Lauren Cohan joined the star-studded 2Pac biopic cast.
Earlier this week Danai Gurira signed on to play Afeni Shakur in the film, and now she’ll be joined by Lauren Cohan, who’s best known for her role as Maggie on AMC’s hit zombie show. Cohan will portray Leila Steinberg, an early mentor of Tupac. Benny Boom is directing All Eyez, which stars Demetrius Shipp Jr. as the influential hip-hop artist. Production is underway on the movie, which does not yet have a release date. (Entertainment Weekly)
