I hope the coin blocks and bricks are durable, and securely attached to the ceiling.


Nintendo is pretty notorious for how aggressively they protect their IP and the “family-friendliness” of their brand . . . short-term pop-up or not, I’d be surprised if there weren’t some C&D letters already en route.


Durable enough to last a couple weeks,anyway. Popups are temporary by design.


What exactly is a pop-up bar? Because I do not believe the District has pop-up liquor licensing.


I dunno, maybe it’s like your local bar dresses up for Halloween?


It’s just a skin applied to an existing bar.


Everything is cosmetic these days.
