The myth surrounding Elden Ring’s Let Me Solo Her has become larger than the game itself in many ways, encompassing many cooperative experiences players have shared and taking on a life of its own in fan art and other commemorations for the renowned player. Let Me Solo Her, of course, is the display name of a player who is famous for how prolifically they have felled Malenia, Blade of Miquella, as one of Elden Ring‘s cooperative summons.
Let Me Solo Her’s legend is ubiquitously known for their skill and their particular aesthetic, donning only a Jar and their preferred armaments. Let Me Solo Her has since divulged their character’s build, and their legacy continues onward. Recently, an Elden Ring fan noticed a “humbling tribute to our hero” among a series of numbered drink orders at a restaurant they were dining at.
Redditor SLYRaccoon6 shared a photograph of a shot menu from Dice and Fork in Auckland, New Zealand. At this particular eatery, a menu comes associated with random shots, and customers roll a 20-sided die to determine which shot they will take. It appears as if the sixth shot on this list is a tribute to Elden Ring dubbed “Let me Solo Her,” featuring the tagline “Blade of Miquella… Pathetic.” The drink itself is only described as having red wine and Kahlua, which many Elden Ring fans believe sounds like the embodiment of Malenia’s Scarlet Rot.
This is certainly a quirky and inventive iteration of Elden Ring’s most popular player, but it is not the first time fans have discovered references to Elden Ring while out at a restaurant or a bar. Redditor OdnarDominus had previously shared their own photographic evidence of a restaurant featuring an entire list of cocktails named after references to Elden Ring, such as Volcano Manor or Tarnished Currency.
This will likely not be the last time an Elden Ring reference is found within a menu, as an abundance of trendy bars often like to include references to popular culture. Let Me Solo Her, as well as many other references to Elden Ring, are certainly popular in today’s video game culture with how much of an impact Elden Ring has had, from widespread memes to real-life references such as these.
It will be interesting to see how the reception to Elden Ring continues to blossom in the near future, as well as how honored Let Me Solo Her will be as a player. In the meantime, fans can enjoy these drinks and other creative items celebrating Elden Ring’s popular influence.
Elden Ring is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
