'Saved By The Bell' Pop-Up Diner Announces L.A. Location (In A Mall, Obviously)

Good news, Bayside High fans; Saved By The Max, the Saved By The Bell-themed pop-up diner that took Chicago by storm last year, has finally revealed its Los Angeles location.

No less an authority than Principal Belding himself took to Youtube on Tuesday to announce Saved By The Max's L.A. whereabouts. (Way to pivot to video, Principal B!) The pop-up diner will be at the West Hollywood Gateway at 7100 Santa Monica Boulevard, which feels all too appropriate if you remember season 3, episode 16 of Saved By The Bell, titled "All In The Mall." No? Just me? Cool.

Soon, visitors to Saved By The Max will be able to dine on a veritable feast of early-'90s sitcom-inspired cuisine, including "A.C. Sliders," "Mac & Screech" and the "Kelly Kapowski Montecristo." (The lighthearted name "Mac & Screech" almost makes you forget that Dustin Diamond, a.k.a. Screech, went to jail for stabbing a guy.)

An opening date has yet to be announced for Saved By The Max's West Hollywood location, but while we wait, let's all enjoy this historic video of Jessie Spano absolutely losing her mind on caffeine pills:
