Great news if you a) are currently suffering from a major sugar hankering, b) hate caffeine, and c) are heavily in favor of burping: There's about to be a store on the Bowery that literally sells nothing besides Sprite.
But much like that all-M&Ms store, now open in Soho, this one's temporary, too. Bowery Boogie reports that the bodega-style "Sprite Corner," which opens officially on Sunday, will only last for about a month or so, sprinkled with events like a cooking class with chef and TV producer Eddie Huang and a performance by rapper Vince Staples. No word if there's Diet Sprite, but we'll keep you posted.
Update: Bedford + Bowery reports that the pop-up is a promotion for the film Straight Outta Compton, with in-store events taking place through the film's release on August 14th.
