The Pop Shop USA Hosts Week Long Dr. Suess Celebration

“Do you like green eggs and ham? I like them, like the Sam I am!” Dr. Seuss fans — both young and old — are invited to attend the annual Dining with Dr. Seuss Week celebration Monday, February 27 through Friday, March 3, 2017 at The Pop Shops in Collingswood and Medford.

The Pop Shop has created a kid’s menu of wild and wacky Seuss-inspired fare including Daisy-Head Mayzie Burgers, Grinch’s Roast Beast, Pink Yink Ink Drink, and, of course — Green Eggs and Ham! The special Seuss menu will be available every day beginning at 12:00pm for lunch and dinner. There are also two Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast celebrations!

The Pop Shop event is inspired by “Read Across America,” a nationwide reading celebration which takes place each year near March 2, the birthday of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss. To encourage literacy, customers are encouraged to donate a book for either a child or teen. Books will be donated to a local shelter.
