Despite their really amazing website and the promise of a State Fair/Carnival atmosphere, I just couldn’t justify to myself that $15 is what it would take to get inside the Atlas District’s newest bar/attraction, Palace of Wonders. I love Americana, and the sideshow carnival is absolutely a core and interesting part of that subcultural interest. Even though Trixie Little was there to stamp her approval on this pseudo-burlesque outfit, I just couldn’t do it.
I just can’t get excited enough to pay that much money to make it through the front door. Call me when the crowds subside, and I’ll make it my own.
Besides. I need more exercise before I can handle a corndog.
