Like that one time when Wonderland had a line?

The Wonderland, home of our favorite beer garden for weekends like these, is still trying to figure out how to keep the crowd and neighborhood happy all at the same time.

Last night they had a beer garden monitor who kept telling people it was "over capacity." He didn't seem to have an actual calculus for determining "capacity" and he couldn't control people going out the front door to smoke, but it was a little annoying, if understandable. Like that one time when the Wonderland had a line. A line!

It will be interesting to see how the attempts at control and balance with the neighbors develop with new night spots coming.

We heard from Room 11 that they should be opening within weeks.

It hurts to be popular. Girls want to be with you, kind of lame guys from the 'burbs want to be you. Whatever, it's our neighborhood bar, we live in the neighborhood, we make it what it is. The lines and capacity warnings on the weekends are really just a compliment on our coolness.

I find this to be an excellent coping strategy when I'm waiting in line to get a f***ing beer.
