Everyone's favorite metal-meets-humor-meets-grossness band, GWAR, just announced plans to open a restaurant in Richmond, Virginia. Patrons can expect to see GWARbar later this summer. With the help of Travis Croxton, Richmond's restaurateur of 2013, the guys are hoping to fulfill one of the late Oderus Urungus' dreams.

A press release heralds GWARbar as "the singularly most important culinary event to occur since the invention of the spoon!" Strong words! BalSac the Jaws of Death—also known as GWAR's rhythm guitarist and creator of their GWAR-B-Q sauce—will craft the menu. "My mother taught me the endless secrets of intergalactic cooking," the musician explained. "Then I ate her."

The band has yet to divulge what the restaurant will actually serve, but we're fairly confident there will be meat... and lots of it. 

Despite Dave Brockie's tragic death, GWAR are slated to play their annual GWAR-B-Q and this year's Riot Fest, possibly with their former bassist on vocals.
