Sure the Showtime premiere of Twin Peaks revival aired last night, but there’s still plenty of Lynchian excitement in store this week. Avalon International Breads kicked off a week of Twin Peaks-themed events and specials on Sunday complete with a life-sized Log Lady, a framed picture of Laura Palmer, and wanted signs for the still-creepy Bob.

All week long, fans can find Twin Peaks-themed temporary tattoos at the Willis Street location and will receive a free cookie on their next visit if they wear it (or show off a real life Twin Peaks tattoo). Then, from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, the shop will host a flea market selling local art inspired by the series and a costume contest. Patrons can also look out for menu items like The Dale Cooper Special — pie and coffee — and the Black Lodge Chocolate Cake that comes decorated with an owl symbol.

This isn’t the first time Avalon has transformed into TV show diner. Last fall, the Willis cafe hosted a Gilmore Girls-themed Luke’s Diner pop-up in honor of the show’s Netflix revival. Unlike that event, Avalon’s Twin Peaks Week isn’t a promotion developed by Showtime but rather something the Detroit-based bakery came up with on its own.

Come downtown tonight at 9 for the premiere of the new #twinpeaks!!#welcometotwinpeaks #avalon #eatwelldogood #premiere

Of course, there are plenty of other ways to celebrate the return of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s surreal detective series. Try making the Double R’s specialty cherry pie recipe or go all out with a Twin Peaks party.
