ASTORIA — A bar in Queens is getting into the Halloween spirit with a "Bob's Burgers" costume party this weekend — even decorating its storefront to look like the animated eatery.
The staff at William Hallet, on 30th Avenue between 36th and 37th streets, will dress up as the main characters from the hit Fox TV show, which follows a quirky cartoon family as they run a struggling burger joint.
The restaurant itself will also be in costume, with a "Bob's Burgers" sign hanging outside and bright green paper covering its facade to match the look of the fictional hamburger restaurant. The Astoria Post first reported on the makeover.
"We're trying to emulate the look of the place as closely as we can," said William Hallet co-owner Craig Davis, who will be decorating the bar inside to look like the counter on the show.
The menu that night will include special hamburgers like the ones featured on the cartoon, which uses puns to name a burger-of-the day in every episode.
Favorites will include the "I've Created a Muenster" burger and "The Final Kraut Down" burger (topped with muenster cheese and sauerkraut, respectively.)
"Come down, have some fun, order some weirdly named burgers," Davis said.
William Hallet is no stranger to TV-themed Halloween parties — last year's was based on the FX comedy "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."
The "Bob's Burgers" party will start Saturday at 8 p.m. and will also include a costume contest and drink specials, according to Davis. For more information visit the Facebook event page.
