Netflix Sends a Cease and Desist to a Stranger Things Pop Up and It’s Probably The Most Entertaining Legal Notice You’ll Read

For 21 and over fans of the cult hit show, Stranger Things, Chicago-based Emporium Arcade Bar’s “end of summer” pop-up is the stuff Netflix (and chill?) dreams are made of. But the same cannot be said for Netflix. According to Variety , Netflix issued a cease-and-desist letter to the bar’s owners, albeit one that was worthy of a true Stranger Things enthusiast.

A Plant & Vintage-Filled Chicago Garden Unit — House Tour

Name: Courtney Frederick, and her cats Bruce and Pete
Location: Humboldt Park — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,100 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, renting

Courtney found her apartment by chance five years ago. It was a cold and snowy Chicago night when a friend called her to come check out the apartment. She drove there in the middle of the night, barely making it on time after her car got stuck in the snow. The apartment had been vacant for a year, so the windows were covered with newspaper and the kitchen cabinets were in terrible shape. Because it was empty for so long, the electricity was shut off, so Courtney used her phone’s flashlight to look around. “Have you ever looked at an apartment in the pitch black without heat? It’s not great,” she says. Despite that, Courtney took a chance and moved in, transforming it into a warm and beautiful space she now shares with her two cats, rescued plants, and her favorite possessions.

A Renovated Industrial Modern Chicago Condo — House Tour

Name: Darcy Young & Mike Putizger with dog Moose
Location: West Town — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,000 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, owned

When Darcy and Mike arrived at a building in the West Town neighborhood of Chicago for a condo showing two years ago, another unit owner in the building happened to be moving out at the same time. The door was open and they popped their heads in. It had high ceilings, an unbeatable view from the rooftop deck, and a dedicated space for the office…but it needed a ton of work. Far more inspired by this wild card option than the cookie-cutter condos they had toured — though in a rough shape — they turned to each other in the car ride home and immediately started scheming ways to fix up the space.

Location: Lincoln Park — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 400 square feet
Years lived in: 8 months, renting

When asked about the limitations of entertaining in her 400-square-foot Lincoln Park studio, Emily Krutz just shrugs, “None really. I’m actually going to be hosting brunch here later today.” That easygoing attitude is how she managed to create a very amenable kitchen, living room, dining room (albeit, an intimate one), and bedroom out of one single small room.

A “Golden Girls” Meets “Mary Tyler Moore” Chicago Apartment — House Tour

Name: Bridget McCullagh
Location: Lakeview — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 750 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, renting

If Mary Tyler Moore moved in with the Golden Girls, their home might look something like Bridget’s vintage-inspired Chicago apartment. “I love the natural wood and plant-heavy look of the 1970s,” she says. Luckily, Bridget inherited a lot of decor and furniture from her mother and grandmother. These elements play right into her retro style and make her apartment feel a bit like a time capsule!

A 1950s Chicago Home’s Ever-Evolving Renovation — House Tour

Name: Carly and Brad Moeller
Location: Ravenswood Manor — Chicago, Illinois
Size: 1,800 square feet
Years lived in: 3.5 years, owned

For all you design-loving storage fanatics, this home is for you. Carly and Brad each have architectural backgrounds, and they were able to bring style and function to their 1950s Chicago home when they updated it. (Like a bold color palette that creates a playful atmosphere in every room.) But their very favorite part of the house is the custom-designed, three-sided, built-in wall of cabinets that divides the living area and kitchen on their first floor. Carly says, “It’s the best thing we did in the renovation and one of the things that truly brings me joy daily, and not just because it’s filled with booze. Although that helps.”
