Thomas Street Warehouse feels like a reality where Applebee’s is extreme winter sports-themed and has no order or rules. Most of the cocktails are awful, and it’ll take a long time to identify and/or get the attention of any bartender. But this place is fun to make fun of - you can get tipsy on syrupy-but-acceptable sangria, laugh at the bad music, and stare at the wall art of Peanuts comic strip characters saying, “B*tch better have my money.”
