Restaurant Tupac Always Wanted To Open Comes To Life On 20th Anniversary Of His Death

September 13, 2016 marks the 20-year anniversary of Tupac Shakur‘s passing and one Fresno cafe has plans on bringing the late rapper’s dream of opening Powamekka Café to life in the form of a one-day pop-up diner.

Tupac’s vision for Powamekka Café will take will take over Take 3 Burger’s space and will be based on inspiration from sketches and menu ideas that he wrote down before his death.

There will Tupac-themed artwork decorated throughout the spot and an entirely new menu consisting of the California Love Chicken Sandwich, Hennessy Apple Butter chicken wings, a Mac-and-Cheese Burger 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 like I used to do for Kanye,” Sam Hansen, the creative mind behind Kanye West’s earlier designs and merchandising who will be partnering with Take 3 Burgers to make Powamekka Cafe happen, says in a press release.

Hansen is also responsible for turning the Fresno Grizzlies concessions stand into a modern day version of Goodburger and previously hosted a tribute breakfast for The Notorious B.I.G. on his birthday this year where they took inspiration from Biggie’s 1994 hit single  “Big Poppa” and served T-bone steaks with cheesy eggs and Welch’s grape juice.
