Homeless had never been there. I hadn't been there in many moons (that equals a couple of years). The weather had been getting silly and it was time to hit up a real Friday night freak show.
So I figured, why not take the trip out to H Street in NE and check out the Palace?
If you live close to Washington DC and you haven't been to Palace of Wonders (or POW as the kids call it) you're missing out on a truly twisted saloon in the heart of the district.
It is essentially a Vaudevillian carnival side-show style bar. It was once owned by Jeremy Pollock and Bernie Bernstrom of Tonic (my current part-time employers). They threw a kick-ass Tonic Holiday Party at POW once upon a time. The twist was that this "holiday party" was at the end of January.
These fools dug out all of the Christmas decorations, costumes, and music that had been out only a month before. It was as if you had walked into Tim Burton's A Nightmare Before Christmas.
This was where Tyler Fyre was truly impressive. Or truly crazy.
