'National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation' pop-up bar opens this week in Royal Oak

A pop-up bar dedicated to "National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation" opens this week in Royal Oak.

Griswold’s Hideaway was first announced earlier this month. The pop-up will be in the basement of the newly opened Bandit Tavern.

Late last month, Jolly Pumpkin in Downtown Royal Oak closed briefly and reopened as Bandit, a southern-style restaurant that also features favorites from previous establishments.
