The Australian-based restaurant that takes the Karen trope and makes it the main selling point is heading stateside with a pop-up in Las Vegas. At Karen’s Diner, customers who act as “Karens” — the insult meant to describe primarily white women who are demeaning or overly demanding toward service workers — are met with equal contempt, with servers dishing out sass and attitude along with your food. Even customers who are perfectly nice can expect to get chewed out.

If you like going out to eat but find yourself wishing that your server would throw your food at your table, embarrass you in front of the entire restaurant, or just generally treat you terribly, then I guess this pop-up is for you. The pop-up will take place at an undisclosed location on Las Vegas Boulevard for two days only, on October 7th and 8th. Tickets are $47 per person and include a burger, fries, and a drink — and awful service. The ticket does not include a tip, but would you want to leave one anyway? Tickets are available online.

A Lobster Shack Opens at New York-New York

Adults-Only Pool Opens at the Rouge Room
