Time to grab the girls and head to Manhattan for a cheesecake roundtable.

Rue La Rue Café, which celebrates the popular TV series that starred Betty White, Bea Arthur, Estelle Getty and Rue McClanahan, has opened in New York City.

The café features memorabilia ranging from McClanahan's 1987 Emmy Award to a colorful collection of costumes, photographs and kitsch.

Michael LaRue was a close friend of McClanahan prior to her death in 2010. He now manages McClanahan's estate, which includes 220 "Golden Girls" pieces that he will rotate through the café to be shared with the public.

The cafe is still in its testing period but New York fans of the classic sitcom, which recently made its way in its entirety to Hulu, can hang out with a bunch of fellow G-Girls fanatics, not to be confused with Gossip Girl or Gilmore Girls fans.

The cafe is located at 4394 Broadway, just north of West 187th Street in Washington Heights.
