The term “pop-up” is usually associated with random, unplanned events. Honestly, Hai Poké’s style is about as non-random as it gets. […]

Poke hit Columbus hard in 2016, or “poked” it, rather. First there were pop-up pokeries. Then right at the end of the year, a couple of dedicated poke places opened up on the North side.
