Editorial Review

Back before Wonderland was a hangout for hipsters from Columbia Heights and beyond, it was a gay bar called Nob Hill with dancers and a primarily African-American audience. As Wonderland's popularity grew, that history faded, but it could change a bit with the launch of Pink Sock, a new monthly gay dance party that's promising "everything from Grace Jones to Prince, Madonna to Lady Gaga, Miss Kittin to MSTRKRFT," according to founder Ryan Duncan. He's bringing DJ Rad down from Boston for the debut. And hey, it's at Wonderland, so the party is free, and there are $5 beer-and-a-shot specials.
