Saved By The Max is L.A.’s Hottest New Pop-Up Restaurant

You have to check out Los Angeles’ hottest new pop-up, Saved By the Max, which is a nod to 1990s TV show Saved By the Bell.

The restaurant is modeled after the hit show, and is totally bringing us back to the days of Zack, Slater, Screech, Lisa, Kelly and Jessie.

Diners can make a reservation to eat at either The Max (the hip diner from the show) or in Mr. Belding’s office.

Inside the pop-up, which was created by Derek Berry, Zack Eastman, and Steve Harris, there’s a wall full of real props and memorabilia from the show like dolls, pillows and lunchboxes!

You can also check out the characters’ lockers, and the attention to detail is unbelievable! Zack Morris’ locker has a bulky 80s cell phone, while Kelly Kapowski’s locker has makeup and a cheerleading outfit and Jessie Spano’s locker has books and appropriately, caffeine pill bottles (from THAT famous episode!) In addition, Lisa Turtle’s locker has crutches from the “dance off” episode where she breaks her leg, while Screech’s locker has a pair of rainbow suspenders, and AC Slater’s locker has a football and hilariously, hairspray!

Even the bathrooms have been given such amazing detail. They’re gender specific and show pictures of Zack Morris for boys and Kelly Kapowski, Jessie Spano and Lisa Turtle for girls. The men’s bathroom even has funny graffiti poking fun of the school’s principal that reads, “Belding stinks!”

Be sure to make a reservation to get your chance to bring you back to your childhood!

If you don’t know, Saved By the Bell’s first episode aired in 1989 and starred Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski), Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater), Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano), Dustin Diamond (Samuel ‘Screech’ Powers), and Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle).

Dustin Diamond (aka Screech) Wasn't Invited to the 'Saved By the Bell' Reunion

Earlier this month, Jimmy Fallon reunited the leads from Saved By the Bell for a hilarious reunion sketch – but many wondered why Dustin Diamond (aka Screech) wasn’t involved.

Turns out, the 38-year-old actor wasn’t invited to participate. Dustin said he found out a few days before, when a friend of his girlfriend’s texted him about it.

“It would have been fun, but I don’t see it as a personal insult,” Dustin told Fox. “Here’s the way I look at it. I walk a very honest and humble path, and I know what kind of person I am. I’m very comfortable where I fit in life. I want to have a family. I want to have kids and I want to raise them right. I’m playing comedy clubs. I’m not rich, but I make a living. I’ve tripped and fallen many times in my life. If you don’t, how do you learn?”

Five of the cast members – Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Dennis Haskins – were able to make it onto the show for the hilarious skit.

Also missing from the reunion was Lark Voorhies, whose rep said she could not attend due to a heavy work schedule.

Where is Screech?! Dustin Diamond Misses 'Saved By the Bell' Reunion

Dustin Diamond was noticeably missing when the cast of Saved By the Bell reunited for a special skit on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (February 4) in Los Angeles.

Five of the cast members – Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, and Dennis Haskins – got back into character and onto the Bayside High set for a fun new skit.

Dustin, who played the role of Samuel “Screech” Powers in the 90s sitcom, has had some legal trouble lately, which may have led to his absence. He was arrested back in December for allegedly stabbing a man, which actually happened days after he did a Saved By the Bell spoof.

Also missing from the reunion was Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle and was Screech’s love interest.
