Yelp users are still warming up to Electric Pussycat, which currently holds 3.5 stars out of 14 reviews on the site.

Yelper Julie H., who reviewed Electric Pussycat on May 5, wrote, "All of the staff was super friendly. They had only two actors that day being on Wednesday. They had a fem-bot, and they had Mini-Me there. Mini-Me is named Gabriel, and we sat and talked with him for a bit- really cool dude. They said they only have Austin Powers on Saturdays."

Yelper Kedar D. wrote, "Electric Pussycat is an amusing, detail-oriented Austin Powers pop-up bar. It also happens to have two vegan items on the food and drinks menu. I got the vegan oreo milkshake ($16). This thing is huge and a spectacle when it's served to you. "

Electric Pussycat is open from 6 p.m.-2 a.m. on Wednesday-Sunday. (It's closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.)

Rolling Factory is a new spot to score ice cream and frozen yogurt and more, with a focus on rolled ice cream.

"With every order, you get a base flavor, a mix-in, one topping and one drizzling," as we covered earlier this month. "Base options include vanilla, chocolate, taro, coffee and cheesecake, and mix-in choices include various nuts, fruits and candies, which are complemented by more than two dozen toppings and drizzles."

Yelp users are excited about Rolling Factory, which currently holds 4.5 stars out of 23 reviews on the site.

Yelper Ver S., who reviewed Rolling Factory on April 4, wrote, "This is a hidden gem in the area. If you have not had Thai Rolled Ice Cream, this is a great intro place."

Yelper Joey T. wrote, "I finally got to try some rolled ice cream that I've been seeing all over social media, and let me tell ya it lived up to the hype. Pick a base for the cream, something to mix in it, something to put on top, and then something to drizzle on. Oodles of combinations are possible."

Rolling Factory is open from 1 p.m.-10:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday and 1 p.m.-11:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
