"Pompeii Fast Food Restaurant to Open After 2,000 Years"

In what may be the longest refurbishment period in history, the Pompeii-based snack bar owned by Vetutius Placidus is to re-open. Its last customers left in a hurry 1,921 years ago, but, this time around, the high profile launch promises to be a much more casual affair.

Three hundred specially invited guests will taste the delights of Roman fast food in the thermopolium (aka, "snack bar"), in a special ceremony that will mark the reopening of the ancient restaurant. Now, after a long period of excavation and preservation, visitors will be able to once again sample the house specialty -- baked cheese with lashings of honey.

Sounds tasty! Anyone know how I can get an invite? :)

How about trying not to get in there? I have heard that it is still a bit of a hot spot:)
