In London a new 1980’s themed night club named Maggie’s recently opened. The owners of the club hope that the late night eatery will become popular with those who want to, for whatever obscure reason, relieve the 1980’s, or perhaps offer a cultural glimpse of the decade for those who don’t actually remember the 1980’s. Named after Britain’s Margaret Thatcher, a variety of celebrities likenesses can be found inside the club. Listed below are the top ten 1980’s themed menu items from the club:
1. Gorbachev pizza. This pizza shaped like the symbol on the Soviet Union’s Flag, a hammer and sickle, and topped with vegetables grown in socialist communes in Europe helps patrons recall the heyday of communism.
2. Dan Quayle’s “Potatoe”. This dish of four blends of cheddar melted over thinly sliced potatoes is a crowd pleaser and comes with napkins that have some favorite Dan Quayle’s quotes on them.
3. Michael Jackson’s White Glove Cake. Shaped like a white glove, this cake is a homage to the late King of Pop, and has silvery sparkles added in an attempt to imitate the Gloved’s One’s favorite fashion accessory.
4. Valdez Oil Spill Chocolate Cake. Chocolate cake smothered in rich melted dark chocolate along with miniature fish “drowning” in the goo.
5. Ronald Reagan’s Hamburger and Mushroom Lasagna. Served just the way the Gipper liked it, slow roasted with flavorful herbs this meal is a perfect dinner after a long day mending fences on the ranch.
6. Ronald Reagan’s Jelly Bean Sunday. A second menu item added in tribute to America’s 40th president. The Sunday is topped with a hearty serving of jelly beans, a favorite treat that Ronnie always kept on his desk in the Oval Office.
7. Nancy Reagan’s summer ice tea jar with astrology straw. Guests are asked their “sign” and given a tall cup of Nancy’s favorite iced tea along with a special glowing novelty straw shaped like their astrological sign. Relive your fond memories of the astrology scandal in the White House which broke when it was learned that Nancy regularly consulted an astrologer.
8. Twisted Sister Spaghetti. Recalls one of the 1980’s more bizarre music groups.
9. Prince Charles and Princess Diana wedding cake. This desert item exactly reproduces the wedding cake eaten at the fairy tale wedding of the decade, which sadly didn’t last.
10. Rubik’s cube of meat chef’s salad. Turkey, ham and roast beef, cut up into square and died red, yellow, blue, white and red pay homage to this popular, but difficult to solve novelty toy that was popular in the 1980’s.
