Festive pop-up tavern opens in Detroit 

Blitzen’s on Bagley, located in Southwest Detroit, opened on November 10 for the holiday season. Blitzen’s will feature select seasonal libations and plenty of tasty feasting fare from neighbors, Shell Shock’d Tacos and Goblin Sushi. Delectable Christmas cookies are being prepared by Anna Bolz, former pastry chef of per se and a baker at Warda. “For the next two months, when you want to meet someone for a holiday hello, Blitzen’s will be the place to be,” said Nick Austin, popular WDET music host and manager of the pop-up. “We’ll have special holiday-themed drinks, over-the-top decorations, and the coolest seasonal music around. Mistletoe is optional.” InLaws Hospitality, owner of Green Dot Stables, Johnny Noodle King, Yellow Light Coffee and Donuts and Goblin, is behind the project. “We want every Cindy Lou Who or Kris Kringle with a need to celebrate to feel welcome here,” said InLaws owner Christine Driscoll. “Detroiters deserve to cut loose this season in an environment complete with twinkling lights, Christmas cookies and the best holiday music. We’ll be all that and more.” Hours for the tavern are Thursday-Sunday 5pm -12am, with the addition of Wednesday, November 23 for Thanksgiving Eve. 2545 Bagley Street
