‘Riverdale’ Brings Milkshakes to Your Local Pop’s Chock’Lit Shoppe

Death, seduction, and suspense, Riverdale’s highly anticipated Season 2 premiered last night on the CW. Ratings were high as expected, but they nearly doubled from last season’s 1.38 million to an astounding 2.3 million, despite the change to a different night. Fans can’t get enough of the dynamic foursome, Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica. Continuing directly after the end of Season 1, you were struck with suspense… will Fred Andrews survive? After, the drama continued with the blossoming romances to some new and unsure faces.

What’s the name of the diner the gang always goes to? Pop’s Chock’Lit Shoppe. You probably wish you could get the chance to hang out there with your squad. Maybe you’ll find your very own Archie or Betty in a booth there? Well that fantasy can come true because across Canada, for one day only, the famous diner will be opening near you. There are eight different locations across the major cities in Canada, I bet you’re wondering if one of them is opening near you.

Vancouver lucked out, probably because Riverdale is filmed here. You have two options. Tonight you can go to the original Rocko’s Family Diner (32786 Lougheed Hwy, Mission, BC V2V 1A7) where the pilot of Riverdale was filmed. The first 200 guests will be getting them for free. The event starts at 7PM until 11PM. Based on the amount of love Riverdale has received, I suggest going early because it will be packed.

The second location is in the heart of Downtown Vancouver at the Templeton (1087 Granville St, Vancouver, BC V6Z 1L2) which is a lot smaller than Rocko’s, so get there early! This one will be open Friday from 7PM to 11PM. You never know, the cast might even pop up at the Pop Shoppes.
