Pop’s Bar & Grill holiday attraction causes buzz

By Thomas Sellers Jr.Pop's tree

Pop’s Bar and Grill bartender Wayne Loerch and patron Larry Cooper stand underneath the upside-down Christmas Tree. Cooper said out of his 63 years of life, he has never seen an upside-down Christmas Tree. A custumer of Pop’s since it opened two and half years ago, Cooper said he has always enjoyed the great food featuring burgers, wings and a loaded breakfast menu. And since the tree was bolted to the roof Dec. 6, Cooper said the atmosphere has been more festive.

Pop’s Bar and Grill owner is Jeanne Beckman who used to co-own the eatery with her husband the late Pops Beckman. She said the tree has been the talk of the town at the  6365 Navy Road location.  The tree was decorated by the trio of Donna Ankebrant, Rhonda Ledbette and Terri Strauser.

It took a few hours to decorate the tree after it was bolted to the roof. The six-foot tree was covered in colorful ribbons starting from the top to the bottom.

“Everybody who has seen it loves it,” Ankebrant said. “It does validate our hard work. And we didn’t take up any floor space in Pop’s.”

The tree also serves another purpose. The fully decorated tree will be raffled off with tickets being sold for a $1 until Dec. 23. The winner of the raffle will receive the tree in full decoration. The money raised will go to two needy families in Millington. Pop’s is involved in charitibable activities year around with Pops being a veteran having served in the U.S. Navy. Pop’s donated to veteran causes like donating $400 to Wounded Warriors. For more information, call 872-0353.
