January 10, 2018
By: Nathan Vicar (AMP) -- Many Eminem fans lined up and braved the cold last month to participate in a unique experience that celebrated the release of the Detroit rapper's latest album Revival. The basement of St. Andrew's Hall in Detroit - formally known as The Shelter - was transformed into Mom's Spaghetti pop-up shop. According to Eminem's website, the selection of The Shelter was the inspiration for the setting of the battle scenes in 8 Mile, right down to the opening scene in the bathroom where nerves get the best of Jimmy Smith Jr.'s homemade pasta. Inside The Shelter, Clarkston, MI -based Union Joints transformed the space into a trailer park inspired bistro vibe packed with some pretty neat details. A simple menu of spaghetti with marinara sauce (with or without meatballs) served in a Chinese food style take-out container along with a big hunk of homemade garlic bread OR a unique ‘Sghetti Sandwich (literally spaghetti with sauce in a panini pressed garlic bread sandwich with cheese) was the edible fare. In addition to the pasta, fans could purchase our remaining stock of 8 Mile 15th Anniversary Carhartt gear and exclusive Revival merchandise, as well as the newly minted Revival CD. On the store's opening day, a large group of lucky fans even got to meet Em and get their CDs signed as well. Eminem shared a video and photos of his pop-up shop for his fans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fF-MRY7ILhQ To see photos of Mom's Spaghetti, click here.
