Comedy Central’s second SF Clusterfest already released its food lineup last week (featuring Johnny Doughnuts, Little Star Pizza, and more) — but now organizers are laying out some new fan experiences in which to partake. Beyond getting trashy at Paddy’s Pub of Always Sunny fame (“where nobody knows your name... and the rum ham will flow like ham”), they’ll have some experiences devoted to Arrested Development lovers, including a stair car you can hop on and a recreation of the Bluths’ famous Banana Stand.

There’s always money in the banana stand — at least there will be at the festival from June 1 to June 3 — and there’s also dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, and peanut butter dipped bananas for sale. And get out those jorts you’ve literally never taken off, because in a display of “never nude” pride, you can expect an “energetic and affirming” never nude parade.

Organizers are also adding more details on this year’s Paddy’s Pub, includng a menu with food like “Bagged Spaghetti with Medicine Balls,” which is spaghetti and meatballs out of a plastic zipper bag, and “Vitamin Balls with Rat Trap Cheese” (which are meatballs with parmesan cheese on skewers).” And ‘90s kids will delight in a live recreation of Nickelodeon’s Double Dare with original host Marc Summers. That’s to feature a Mountain Dew sponsored/themed obstacle course — and perhaps getting Mountain Dew slimed as well.

Clusterfest runs from Friday, June 1 to Sunday, June 3 and includes headliners Amy Schumer, Jon Stewart, The Lonely Island, Wu-Tang Clan, Trevor Noah, and more acts. Tickets are for sale here online .
