A sex shop/restaurant hybrid is set to open in Manhattan, which is good news for those of you who have always yearned to buy lube and eat a hamburger at the same place.

“It’s straight, it’s gay, it’s everything,” Splash Sexy Boutique (and soon to be bistro/cafe/bar) manager Dumesh Kanamalage tells the New York Daily News. “There’s nothing like it in the country. It’s one place to eat, drink, shop and do everything.”

The place is set to open in mid-December, so you may want to call and make your family's holiday dinner reservations now.
