      ...keeping North Park gay
      Used to be, North Park rivaled Hillcrest in the number of gay bars and restaurants, but one by one, places like Bacchus House, Shooters, and the never-duplicated Wolf's were replaced with not unwelcome heterosexual microbrew lounges (i.e. True North) where gays can be found, but not significantly. The few stalwart LGBT survivors were similar neighborhood hangouts Redwing and The Eagle. Then along came the younger brother of the legendary Palm Springs asian-cuisine-with-overflowing-happy-hour. Although Wang's has a large, inviting bar, it's dwarfed by the gigantic restaurant area which used to house Big Lots. The food is PF Wang's, which isn't a bad thing, and besides, the atmosphere is what really sells this place. It's not nearly as gay as the original, and the bar hasn't yet attracted the shoulder-to-shoulder happy hour crowds navigated in Palm Springs, yet Wang's North Park is an overdue alternative to the mostly-straight urbanization of good ol' 30th and University.

      Great place
      Happy hour is great! Reasonably priced appetizers and beer! Food is pretty darn good, a lot of it is spicy.
