What is it about the 鈥80s that keeps us all coming back for more? It seems like no matter where you turn these days, everyone鈥檚 got some vintage love to share 鈥 just check out these old-school fashion essentials or the resurgence of聽Lisa Frank聽for proof.


There鈥檚 also TV faves, like聽the鈥80s cult sitcom聽The Golden Girls, whichtook place in a house shared by four senior women: Dorothy, her mother Sophia, Rose, and sexy Blanche. Rumors聽have been swirling about an opening date聽for a cafe celebrating these four ladies for a while now, and the shop has finally opened this weekend in New York, elevating our #SquadGoals to a whole new聽level.

The restaurant, created by the son of Rue McClanahan and her longtime friend Michael LaRue, features bathrooms painstakingly recreated to look like the one on the show, memorabilia, and even a table set to look like the famous kitchen from the show. With walls dedicated to each of the four ladies, owner Michael hopes that the last surviving golden girl, icon Betty White, will make it into the cafe for some cheesecake and chats.


Though聽lines are sure to be long for a while, with people coming back more than once this opening weekend, we foresee the cafe (properly called Rue La Rue) in the Washington Heights neighborhood to be around for quite a聽while. That doesn鈥檛 mean you shouldn鈥檛 plan your trip sooner rather than later, though: Once Betty White goes through聽those doors, it鈥檒l probably be next to impossible to get into the cafe!
