CHICAGO — The “Saved by the Bell” tribute diner coming to Chicago is once again upping the authenticity factor by putting Max in “The Max.”

Saved By The Max, which opens June 1st in Wicker Park, will have Ed Alonzo, who played Max on the show, on hand for the first few nights for table side service and magic.  Yes, magic.

The eatery also announced a schedule of late night events they’re calling Bayside After Dark:

  •  Sundays: The Zack Attack Variety Show
  •  Mondays: Mondays at The Max
  •   Tuesdays: Trivia Night
  •  Wednesdays: TV-Oke night
  •   Thursdays: School Spirit Night
  •   Fridays/Saturdays: 80’s vs. 90’s Night

Saved By The Max will open at 1941 North Ave and will be open until 2 a.m. Monday – Sunday and 3 a.m. on Saturdays.

They open June 1st and will remain open just until August 31st.

Dinner reservation tickets are nearly sold out but the restaurant says some individual meal tickets remains.  Limited walk-ins will also be welcome on a nightly basis.  Brunch and late night service is a first come first serve basis.

Saved By The Max’s kitchen will be overseen by Chef Brian Fisher, who previous work included chef de cuisine at the Michelin starred Schwa.  You’ll be able to dine on items like A.C> Sliders, Mac & Screech and Miss Bliss Candied Bacon.
