ver wished you could step into the world of Stranger Things? And, more specifically, that you could step into the world of Stranger Things while drinking?
Well, if you live in the Chicago area, then your dreams became a reality in at the end of August when a Stranger Things-themed pop-up bar and arcade opened in Logan Square.
However, once the producers got wind of the bar, they sent the unauthorized establishment a letter that's both hilarious and slightly terrifying.
Stranger Things has turned into a bit of a phenomenon since it first appeared on Netflix in July of 2016.
The mix of nostalgia with a seriously binge-worthy plot made it must-see TV, and the show has since inspired everything from Halloween costumes to SNL spoofs.
So when a Stranger Things-themed pop-up bar opened in Chicago, people were psyched.
The pop-up bar, called The Upside Down, was located within the Emporium Arcade in the Logan Square area.
Based on photos from the Instagram account, entering the bar really was like stepping onto the Stranger Things set.
It offered patrons everything from Joyce's crazy blinking Christmas lights to missing Barb posters to an Eleven-inspired drink (and yes, it has an Eggo waffle in it).
Other drink selections included Schlitz beer, a Demogorgun slushie, and a concoction called a Snack Pack, which includes Mezcal, passion fruit, lemon, chocolate syrup and creme de cacao.
And while fans loved the bar's authentic atmosphere and fun drinks, a few other people were less than thrilled about it.
Those people were the show’s producers and legal team.
And when they found out, they sent Jared Saul, the bar’s owner, a cease-and-desist letter that is so amazing it should probably be framed and hung up in Saul’s house.
That is, if he isn’t killed by Demogorgon first.
The full letter is as follows:
“Danny and Doug,
My walkie talkie is busted so I had to write this note instead.”
