Netflix found out there was a Stranger Things pop-up bar operating in Chicago and very kindly asked them to stop it...one of these days. They decided to reach out to them with this letter:
“Look, I don’t want you to think I’m a total wastoid, and I love how much you guys love the show. (Just wait until you see Season 2!) But unless I’m living in the Upside Down, I don’t think we did a deal with you for this pop-up. You’re obviously creative types, so I’m sure you can appreciate that it’s important to us to have a say in how our fans encounter the worlds we build. We’re not going to go full Dr. Brenner on you, but we ask that you please (1) not extend the pop-up beyond its 6 week run ending in September, and (2) reach out to us for permission if you plan to do something like this again.”
Stranger Things season 2 arrives on Netflix on Oct. 27.
