GWAR to Open Their First Restaurant and Bar

GWAR is going into the restaurant business.

The band has joined with Travis Croxton, the man who was voted Richmond, Virginia's restaurateur of the year for 2013, to open GWARbar, what is called one of the "last dreams of their fallen singer, Oderus Urungus." Urungus was the character of Dave Brockie, the only member of GWAR throughout their existence, who died on March 23.

According to the press release:
But 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! Because the GWARbar marks the first time in the history of humans eating stuff that they shall do so by ordering off a menu designed by a chef NOT OF THIS EARTH…that’s right, 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 that is sure to make man or aliens swoon with epicurean delight. Let the plates of mankind be filled with the food of the God’s…at a workingman’s price! “My mother taught me the endless secrets of intergalactic cooking,” said the hulking form of Balsac as he sat down to a heaping platter of GWAR-B-Q. “And then I ate her.”
The band has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the building renovation where you can "earn anything from GWAR’s undying scorn ($1) to a bar stool with your name on it at the bar ($1000)!" Contributions can be made at Indiegogo.
