Wonder's Pub - closed?

Postby lukpac » Sun Jan 06, 2008 10:20 pm

What the? This is up on Legistar (just search for 'Alchemy'):

Public Hearing - New License Alchemy Cafe, LLC • Alchemy Cafe • 50% alcohol, 50% food 1980 Atwood Avenue • Agent: Michael T. Randall • Est. Capacity: 99 Class B Combination Liquor & Beer Aldermanic District 6 (Alder Rummel) • Police Sector 410


That's the address of Wonder's, the license application clearly states it used to be Wonder's and has a copy of the floor plan. Signed 12/21. What happened? What of the regular music there?

Word on the street is that the owner put the bar up for sale a couple months ago or so. A couple weeks ago, I heard that there was a buyer, but this is the first real evidence I've seen that this is true.

No more details yet, but it looks like Wonder's may not be closed quite yet.

just what the east side needs...another "cafe" :roll:

I would have totally bought Wonders...we had great plans for that place everytime we drank there.

How come no one told me?

Where am I going to buy my beerfest tickets now?

Is it going to be another gay bar?

OK, I admit it, I'm dense - does the PBR @ Wonder's mean the place is sold?

(sorry - i'm slow in catching on sometimes :cry: )

The beer of 2008 at Wonders is the 16oz PBR.

I thought maybe SB was trying to say Wonder's is/was a gay bar...
