Like inside-jokes, booze and Will Ferrell movies? You’re in luck.

The first ever Will Ferrell-themed bar — that’s right, a bar inspired by the comedic actor — opened October 1st in New York City’s Lower East Side neighborhood.

The new spot, called Stay Classy New York, offers an impressive list of artisanal cocktails, all based on jokes from Ferrell roles in Saturday Night Live, Anchorman, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Old School and more.

Zach Neil and his business partner, Brian Link, had always wanted to open a bar together … and a Will Ferrell-theme just made perfect sense.

“In business, there’s always a chance that you lose your money and fail, so we said we might as well do something that we think is funny and represents what we love that way if we lose we can still laugh about it,” Neil tells PEOPLE. “Will Ferrell movies are our favorite — we love the man and his work — so it was easy for us to create this landscape of ridiculous things and theme it accordingly.”

For example: A Whale’s Vagina ($12), comprised of vodka, triple sec, orange juice and gin, is a nod to the scene in Anchorman when Ron Burgundy tells love interest Veronica Corningstone that “San Diego” comes from the German word for “a whale’s vagina.”

All of the cocktails — like Milk Was a Bad Choice, You’re My Boy Blue! and Smelly Pirate Hooker — span Ferrell’s lengthy career. (We should also add that the bathrooms are labeled “F-Shack 1” and “F-Shack 2,” a nod to his film with Mark Wahlburg, The Other Guys)

There’s even a whole wall devoted to Ferrell-inspired art.

“There is an entire proper art gallery commissioned my local and national artists whom have painted sculpted and drawn custom art for the Will Ferrell character theme gallery,” Neil tells PEOPLE.

We’re personally dying to try the Did We Just Become Best Friends? ($10), described as “two house shots, one for you and one for a friend. You can also leave a shot for a friend to redeem at a later date.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
