Before his untimely death in 1996, Tupac had sketched up some ideas for a restaurant in his native California. And coming up on the 20th anniversary of his death, a clever entrepreneur is making those dreams come to life.

Take 3 Burgers is teaming with a foodie named Sam Hansen to create Powamekka Cafe, which will include some of Tupac's vision into their existing Fulton Mall pop-up restaurant. They created a logo based off Tupac's ideas, which now exist on a piece of paper in the Grammy Museum.

"The event will begin at 7pm on 9/13 and will also feature a 2pac themed art show and performances by local musicians doing covers of their favorite Pac tracks," the Facebook event reads.

As for the menu, they'll be cooking up versions of 'Pac's tasty ideas: California Love Chicken Sandwich, Hennessey Apple Butter chicken wings, a Mac-and-Cheeseburger and Thug Passion cake pops (champagne cake with Alize-flavored frosting).

"Working on Powamekka Café makes me feel like I'm bringing Pac’s vision to life," Hansen said in a statement.
