The shop, named after a famous line in Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself” from “8 Mile,” served spaghetti with garlic bread for $5 or $8 with meatballs, and a $5 s’ghetti sandwich.

Just as Eminem promised in a tweet announcing the shop, there was also merchandise available for fans. The Detroit News reported that the “Revival” album was being sold for $13.

It wasn’t just music and food being sold, though. T-shirts and hats were being sold for $25-$35 and hoodies and jackets were sold for $75 and $160, according to the newspaper.

The shop was set up at music venue The Shelter in St. Andrew’s Hall. 

Lines were out the door for the event, which ran from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday.
