After purchasing the Como’s space at 22812 Woodward Avenue at Nine Mile Road in Ferndale, its new owners, the Peas and Carrots Hospitality Group, knew it would be a long time before they would be able to open the restaurant again. So they decided to start FOMO, a patio bar pop-up which began August 3. “We thought this would be a good opportunity to inject a little energy in to it, keep people talking about us, and also introduce ourselves to the community,” said Michael Gray, Peas & Carrots’ regional manager and Ferndale resident. The FOMO (slang for “fear of missing out”) events will take place Thursday-Saturday from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. and have live music, outdoor games, and different non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages. Gray said they won’t be serving food and hope to continue this through the end of September.
