Get ready to treat yo self with Donna Marie Meagle, Leslie Knope and the entire gang at a Parks and Recreation pop-up at Replay Lincoln Park. Beginning Friday, August 30, guests are invited to hang with all of their favorite Pawneeans in the small Indiana town known for the Boone Bread Factory, Rent-A-Swag, Cozy’s Bar and more, and remember what is important in life: “friends, waffles, work or waffles, friends, work - it doesn’t matter, but work is third.”
The Parks and Recreation pop-up will feature custom artwork and several photo opportunities at Pawnee destinations including the Department of Parks and Recreation, Shoe Shine Stand, Li’l Sebastian’s Stable, Eagleton Fence, the Pit and the World’s Smallest Park. Featured in “Pawnee, Indiana” – Replay Lincoln Park - will include themed bingo, trivia and more. Those looking to attend the Harvest Festival can celebrate with miniature horse and celebrity, Li’l Sebastian. Breakfast lovers may indulge in Ron Swanson’s favorite buffet happy hour at the Glitter Factory complete with all the bacon and eggs. Additionally, individuals looking to treat themselves like Donna Marie Meagle, Ben Wyatt and swag-obsessed, Tom Haverford, can do so on Treat Yo Self day, the day to pamper and indulge in the most extravagant whims. Pop-up visitors will attend a Mouse Rat rock concert and a tenor saxophone performance by The Duke Silver, Ron Swanson’s alias.
In tribute to the Glitter Factory’s breakfast buffet, JJ’s Diner and sweet manufacturer, Sweetums, Replay Lincoln Park has partnered with Zizi’s Cafe to serve a variety of snacks, like The Paunch Burger, Paunch Chili Cheese Fries, Waffles with Whipped Cream and Treat Yo Self Cakes.
