The San Francisco Dungeon Theater is offering their clientele a new experience this summer in the form of a pop-up rat cafe.

Upon entering the theater, guests will get coffee and a snack, followed by a chance to interact with the domestic rats.

"It's a story that we tell here at the dungeon, and we wanted to combine that story of plague and rats with something new and exciting," said supervisor Matthew Gunter. "We thought what better way than to experience rats in person with some coffee and a Danish before they see the dungeon show in person."

The theater works in partnership with Rattie Ratz of Northern California, which is an organization dedicated to finding a home for wayward rats.
