New Popup Venue Upstairs at Checker Bar

If you haven't checked out the tasty popups that have been POPPING UP around town, then you need to get with it! There is a new popup in town and it's actually a popup venue, not just one dinner or a series of dinners over a weekend.  You can go to a different pop up every Thursday upstairs at Checker Bar.  The owners of Grand Trunk Pub downtown purchased Checker Bar last year and converted the upstairs into a dining room called POP.

The first popup to come to POP was by NOODL, which is simple: four pastas and four sauces.  NOODL has also done popups at Motor City Wine, my personal favorite wine bar.

Below is the most recent menu from the NOODL popup last week and photo by Joe Hakim taken from the NOODL facebook page.
