Tupac pop-up café commemorates the twentieth anniversary of his death

The Fresno, California restaurant is open for today (September 13) only

A Californian pop up café has opened for one day only to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the death of Tupac Shakur.

The rapper was killed in a drive-by shooting on this day in 1996 when his car stopped at an intersection in Las Vegas. He was 25.

As Stereogum reports, Shakur had designs on opening a restaurant in California with the name Powamekka Café. That vision was made a reality today as Fresno restaurant Take 3 Burgers became the Powamekka for one day only, using logo designs that the rapper had designed before his death, as well as taking his ideas on what the menu should contain.


See pictures of the Café below.

Items said to be on the menu will include a California Love Chicken Sandwich, Hennessy Apple Butter chicken wings, mac-and-cheeseburger and Thug Passion cake pops featuring champagne cake with Alize liqueur-flavoured frosting.

A host of local musicians will also perform a series of Tupac songs later tonight. You can read more about the Café on its Facebook page.

Earlier today, a new trailer for the Tupac biopic, All Eyez On Me, was released, which you can watch here.

It was also recently announced that Johnny Depp is set to play a detective who tries to solve the murders of Shakur and Notorious BIG in a new film based on their killings.
