A Biggie Pop-Up Café Will Open On The 20th Anniversary Of His Death


(TIML NEWS) We’ll always love Big Poppa.

Back in September of last year, a Tupac themed restaraunt  was opened up in honor of the 20th anniversary of the rapper’s untimely death. And now, it’s Biggie’s turn.

On March 9th, 2017, Sam Hansen (the mind behind FTK and director of marketing for the Fresno Grizzlies) and Desirae Washington-Reed (co-owner of Take 3 Burgers) will celebrate the life and music of Christopher Wallace by transforming Take 3 Burgers at Fresno’s Fulton Mall into the official Big Poppa’s Pop-Up Café.

“After seeing the response the community had to the Tupac event,” Washington-Reed says, “We thought it was only right that we paid tribute to Biggie by reviving this idea.”

Inspired by The Notorious B.I.G’s lyrics, the pop-up cafe will open at 5:46am (because “Warning”) and will serve a breakfast of T-bone steak, cheese eggs and Welch’s grape juice (because “Big Poppa”).


Take 3 will also be serving 5:46 Cereal Treats, a Peanut Butter Crunch/Frosted Flakes marshmallow treat (inspired by the “Warning” video).



Limited to 100 customers, Big Poppa’s Pop-Up Café will serve 20 people every hour from 5:46am to 10:46am. Reservations are available here, with expectations of a quick sell out.

On top of the café, there will also be a tribute concert and art show later that night at Full Circle Brewing Co. in Downtown Fresno. There, fans will also have the option of purchasing custom champagne flutes inscribed with, “We sip champagne when we thirsty.”

Doors open at 7pm There’s a $7 cover.
