If you're in the mood for cheesecake, I know just the place, a place you'll to go many, many times.
Michael J. LaRue (no relation), a longtime friend of the late Rue McClanahan's, is the mastermind behind Rue La Rue Café, which will soon open in Washington Heights, an area of NYC.
The place will be littered with imagery from the show, culled from McClanahan's personal collection.
See you there whenever they open! (Soon, they promise.)
All 180 episodes of The Golden Girls will drop on Hulu February 13, marking the first time you can stream the entire series in one place.

Picture it: Your living room, late at night, Grindr's buzzing but you're blissfully unaware. Why? Because you just got a book, a book so good they named it.
If you love The Golden Girls—and let's face it, if you don't, maybe you're on the wrong site?—you will love Golden Girls Forever: An Unauthorized Look Behind the Lanai (Harper Design, $35) by Jim Colucci, and you will absolutely never regret devoting many quiet evenings to committing it to memory.
Colucci authored the already indispensable The Q Guide to the Golden Girls (Alyson, 2006)—which was specifically targeted at fancy men everywhere—but has taken a more encyclopedic approach this time around, offering 368 pages filled with internal memos; stills; on-set personal candids; interviews with “the show's creators, actors, guest stars, producers, writers, and crew members”; and even a section of tributes from famous fans like Zachary Quinto and Laverne Cox.
As the expert on the series, Colucci was able to interview Rue McClanahan and Bea Arthur in the years prior to their deaths, and also delivers a new Q&A with Betty White.
The book's greatest use is its inclusion of exhaustive summaries of every episode, which do a lot more than regurgitate IMDb factoids. Colucci offers original comments from the creatives on the making-of that serve as incredible oral histories, the likes of which few if any other TV series have ever received.
Golden Girls Forever also faithfully documents fan art and fan-appreciation events/plays, making it not just a memento of the series, but a breathlessly faithful chronicle of its impact on the greater culture.
On a more superficial level, the book is also beautifully designed, as pretty as Blanche's perky bosoms.
Take a lesson, Rose, Golden Girls Forever is how you tell a story.
Some of RuPaul's favorite queens will be sitting in as the Golden Girls characters in Logo's upcoming salute to the 30th anniversary of the series.
