Speaking of, there will be a Treat Yo Self day to pamper yourself like Donna Marie Meagle, Ben Wyatt and swag-obsessed, Tom Haverford. 

And if that's not enough for you, there will be a Mouse Rat rock concert and a tenor saxophone performance by The Duke Silver, Ron Swanson’s alias.

Now that we've got your attention, they're also creating a themed specialty cocktail menu including Give Me All the Bacon, a bacon-infused bourbon and maple syrup old fashioned; Treat Yo Self mixed with lemonade, Luardo Maraschino and Tito’s Vodka; Galentine’s Day with passion fruit orange juice and champagne; The Ron Swanson made with two fingers of Lagavulin 16; The Reasonabilist’s Nectar of a Thought Sorrows combining red wine and root beer; and Snake Juice. 

And we can't forget about the fan-favorite: The Tammy 2, a frozen rosé and vodka cocktail and The Leslie Knopf, a whipped cream vodka concoction garnished with a waffle, of course.

There's no cover to check out the pop-up.
