By now, most of you have certainly made you way through the entire third season of Stranger Things. For those of you who haven’t, prepare for a small and mostly-insignificant spoiler: Steve Harrington works at an ice cream parlor. Yes, the teenage heartthrob—expertly played by occasional Cactus Club visitor Joe Keery—spends his first summer after graduation toiling away at Scoops Ahoy, an ice cream shop in the brand new Starcourt Mall.

Even though the food court hot spot where Steve and Robin served sundaes and cracked Russian codes is fictional, one Milwaukee bar will temporarily turn into a Scoops Ahoy and offer boozy takes on items served up in the latest season of the Netflix series. On Thursday, July 18, Don’s Diner (home of “The 10-cent Martini Lunch!”) will celebrate the new season of Stranger Things by hosting a Scoops Ahoy Pop-Up in the Walker’s Point restaurant’s Naughty Angel Back-Bar. There, costumed staff members will serve fans of sci-fi shows and boozy desserts alike floats, shakes, and cocktails based on the show from 5-9 p.m.

As you anxiously wait for season four to drop, Don’s Diner can help you set sail on an ocean of flavor. At least for one night. Ahoy!
