New Mexico Steakhouse To Hold ‘Funeral’ For Walter White
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque steakhouse plans to hold a make-believe funeral for Walter White, the chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin on the popular AMC drama “Breaking Bad” that was filmed in the city.
Vernon’s Hidden Valley Steakhouse says it will hold the service on Saturday afternoon for White, who was killed in the September series finale.
It will take place at Sunset Memorial Park, with “Breaking Bad” set decorator Michael Flowers delivering the eulogy. A Saturday night reception will follow.
But fans will have to pay to attend, with proceeds going to an endowment for substance abuse prevention programs in Albuquerque.
Packages for tickets to the funeral and reception start at $20 and go to $5,000. Fans can also purchase baby blue silicone Walter White bracelets for $10.
