A pop-up bar is on its way to Boston, and it will pay tribute to an actor and comedian who is known in part for his role as a scotch-loving news anchor.
Eater Boston is reporting (via the Metro) that a Will Farrell-themed bar will be setting up shop at Umbria on Franklin Street in the Financial District from April 14 to April 23, with the place having seating for 250 (and standing room for an additional 150) and offering drinks such as the Glass Case Of Emotion and You're My Boy Blue while also offering food options such as Ma's Meatloaf. The bar--which goes by the name "Stay Classy"--is run by Zach Neil and Brian Link of Beetle House, a Tim Burton-inspired bar in New York, and while Ferrell is not directly connected with the upcoming Boston bar, Stay Classy did help raise money for his Cancer for College charity when it popped up in Los Angeles in December, according to the Metro. (Stay Classy got its start in New York.)
Will Farrell has been in such movies as Anchorman, Elf, Wedding Crashers, and Old School, while also being a cast member of Saturday Night Live.
