The first Biergarten of the season after a winter of brainstorming paid off in tiny details that made some huge differences. To the casual observer they were probably insignificant but I think they had big implications. The fence that used to surround the lot was gone. Not only did it make the space feel more free, I think it took down a barrier to the neighborhood.
Like Walnut Hills is ok, AS LONG AS YOU'RE INSIDE THIS FENCE!
Maybe I'm reading too much into that little change. Maybe not.
The other subtle change, spreading the pile of architectural stone around the lot for seating. People were seated all over in informal groups. Also the awnings from what will soon be Angst Coffee into the alley space connecting them together. All together positive changes for Five Points Alley, and Walnut Hills.
