The phrase "home invasion" generally inspires more fear than anticipation. Perhaps that's because the invaders don't generally cook you a meal. That's the concept behind traveling, real estate-obsessed pop-up PlaceInvaders, which is planning a stop in Detroit next week.

The dining series founded by chef Hagan Blount and Katie Smith-Adair got its start New York in 2014 but has since expanded to Los Angeles, Seattle, and Chicago. Each event is hosted in an intimate home setting with past invasions popping up in abandoned 1950s penthouses, Shanghai opium den-inspired condos, and more. In Detroit, the pair intend to set up in an as-of-yet unidentified Boston-Edison mansion teaming with Public House chef Brandon Zarb.

Tickets are now available for brunch and dinner seatings on April 29, April 30, and May 1, and they're selling out fast. PlaceInvaders reveals the location to attendees 24 hours ahead of the meal. The meal comes with a cocktail and unlimited wine with proceeds from Sunday's dinner benefitting WriteAHouse. Check out the menus below:
