The Max, the diner frequented by the gang on tv's Saved By The Bell, has become a real thing. Earlier this year, the Max opened on the near north side of Chicago.
My bud Eugene Cresto beat me to it again. Not only did he visit the Max, he met Dennis Haskins (aka Mr. Belding)) there. How cool is that?
Okay, I am a bit old to have actually been a huge fan of the show, but I appreciated it for what it was. It was big back in the day and the Max is an iconic place, similar to Arnold's (Happy Days).
I think I either need to spy on Eugene or to hire him for the Johngy's Beat crew. He is everywhere, meeting everyone.
