A pop up bar that opened up somewhere in Logan Square, inspired by the Netflix show Stranger Things has been sent a cease and desist letter by Netflix. However, the language is not like some suit sending an insensitive message. The message has several Stranger Things references, and just maybe, the owners of the pop up bar might close down the bar just in deference to the letter.

The letter coolly reminds the owners that Netflix didn’t make a deal with them for this pop up. The letter further says that while the owners might be creative people, Netflix would like to hold some sway about how fans encounter worlds that they build.

Its ends on a positive note, telling the owners to ask Netflix permission if they intend to start something else like this.
