I got a sneak peek inside the new Pony last night. It's unbelievable how much it doesn't look anything like that little flower shop that lived near 12th and Madison for I dunno know how many years. There's custom bar being built, some converted church pew seating (!!), a special nook for the big gay air hockey table, and a brand new patio. Also of note, um, the bartenders?! Whaaat? HOT.
