Minnapolis' the Bachelor Farmer and its downstairs Marvel Bar are going as two iconic '80s establishments for Halloween: According to a Facebook announcement, the Bachelor Farmer will be modeled after the fictional space Dorsia from American Psycho, while the bar will be in costume as the bar in the Tom Cruise classic Cocktail ? hopefully with lots of flair involved. In addition to a one-night restaurant transformation — complete with full on-menu planning, wine choices, decor changes — the team also prepped a hot Cocktail-inspired photo shoot for the occasion.
Eater Minneapolis has a look at the theme menus, which are packed with '80s throwbacks (rosettes of cured salmon; a baked sole with "lobster bisque sauce"; Fuzzy Navel and Sex on the Beach cocktails) in curly cursive ("It wouldn't be the 80s without fussy calligraphy!") But co-owner Eric Dayton tells the Minneapolis City Pages that things won't get too out of hand: "We'll still be taking the food seriously, but more '80s, more over-the-top."
