Moxy University’s Mean Girls Themed Pop-up Bar

Mia Bustillos

Throughout July, Moxy University is hosting a Mean Girls themed pop-up bar at Zombie Taco located in West Campus. The bar opens at 2 P.M and offers a sweet selection of themed drinks. 

This Bar Is so Fetch

Not only are the drinks themed but so is the surrounding area and furniture. They have cute pink couches with a neon sign above it that says, “You can’t sit with us.” Along with several sections of the bar dedicated to scenes from the movie.

One room has couches inside with pink fairy lights hanging on one wall with the iconic “Burn book” from the movie. A stage is set up towards the back of the bar stage decorated as the backdrop for the winter talent show. It even includes a sleigh where guests can take pictures in.

One seating area is decorated as Ms. Norburry’s classroom with a large map of the cafeteria hung on one wall. The bar also has a big screen where they have the movie playing. 

The environment was super relaxing, I sat in the area that was decorated as Ms. Norburry’s classroom where I got to enjoy food from Zombie Taco. Zombie Taco is open 24/7 and is located inside near the bar. They have self-ordering kiosks and a large menu with a lot of great stuff.

Zombie Taco 

I ordered the Korean steak taco, the brisket and cheese taquitos with tomatillo salsa, chips and queso, and lastly, some Bavarian crème filled churros. The taco was extremely flavorful, the steak was juicy and the cucumber and shishitos combination was both refreshing and spicy. 

The taquitos came rolled in red fried tortillas with tomatillo and avocado salsa on the side. The bar fills the taquitos with brisket and six different cheeses. They were crunchy and savory, the addition of the tomatillo and avocado salsa was so delicious. This was definitely my favorite salsa that they had, its perfect for a hot day because it’s so refreshing. 

The Bavarian crème filled churros completed my meal. They were served warm and were incredibly soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. The Bavarian crème was light and sweet without overpowering the sugar and cinnamon on the breading. 

The Drinks 

The bar offers a selection of specialty themed drinks all inspired by the movie. I ordered the “On Wednesdays we Drink Pink” it has Rum, DiSaronno, pineapple, strawberry and lemon juices. This was a fruity and refreshing drink that tasted like a summer vacation. Garnished with a pineapple, and pink in color this drink was an excellent take on the movie. (image of the drink)

In addition to this drink, they also had drinks by the name of You go Glen Coco, I’m a fun Mom and The Plastics. For an extra $10 they have a themed glass that you can keep too. Their special The Plastics is a tequila flight of Altos Plata, Reposado and Anejo. 

The Mean Girls themed bar is only being offered throughout July, so check it out while you can. For more Mean Girls inspired cocktails check out this DIY recipe.
