William Hallet on 30th Avenue is dressed up as Bob’s Burgers, the burger joint from the popular Fox TV show of the same name, for a Halloween party this weekend.
As of Wednesday morning the restaurant, located at 36-10 30th Ave., had a Bob’s Burgers sign hanging outside and was partially decked out in green like the cartoon restaurant; chef/owner George Rallis said he will finish decorations by Thursday evening.
On Saturday starting at 8 p.m., the restaurant will host a Bob’s Burgers-themed Halloween party.
Rallis put together a burger menu based on the pun-heavy burger specials from the TV show, such as the Parma Parma Parma Chameleon with Parmesan cheese, the Final Krautdown with sauerkraut and the I’ve Created A Muenster with Muenster cheese. There will also be drink specials, and the restaurant’s regular menu will be available.
The William Hallet bartenders will be dressed as Bob and his wife Linda, the waitresses and bar back will be dressed as their kids, and Rallis will be the eccentric landlord Mr. Fischoeder.
Rallis said he was drawn to the “Bob’s Burgers” theme because of the show’s “distinctive characters” and devoted fans.
“The people who know [‘Bob’s Burgers’] love it to death,” he said.
Prizes will be given out for best costume on Saturday.
