John Wasserman from Windsor Terrace says:
Pardon me, but I'm not sure that their happy hour policy can be described as very effective. Also, the artwork makes it extremely difficult to distinguish what is indoors and what is outdoors. I'm sorry, but this just won't do.

Sara from Park Slope says:
Great comic Bill! Bro-tastic is an understatement, the place is over run with a bridge and tunnel type crowd at night. Bros love beer gardens apparently. It's a shame because it's a really nice addition to the neighborhood otherwise.

It won't do WHAT?

Tim P from Wash Hgts says:
It's very clear what is outdoor and what is indoor. Perhaps John Wasserman needs to take a remedial course on how to read comic?

Also, it won't do what? Mr. Wasserman, if you are going to offer criticism, please learn how to complete sentences and thoughts so we know exactly what you mean when you say something won't do. Other wise, what's the point of saying anything if it just makes you sound like a brat?

Unless you want everyone to think you are a brat. Then you have accomplished your goal.

That's an awesome comic (again) Bill! I can tell what's inside and outside, but I don't have a pole shoved up my ass.

John Wasserman from Windsor Terrace says:
Pardon me, again. I just noticed that the children in the final panel are drawn breaking out of the confines of that panel! I for one do not want cartoon children all over the other pages of my Brooklyn Paper. I will be shutting down my computer and unplugging it promptly. Will someone please let me know when this problem is resolved?

I'm sorry if I've offended anybody here on this board. Having said that, these are just my opinions. I certianly didn't mean to make resort to profanity to express themselves. I wish our Bill Roundy all the best. I just believe he has a lot of work to do as a Bartoonist.

Brookboy from Park Slope says:
Thank you, Mr. Roundy, for another entertaining and informative comic. And thank you, Mr. Wasserman (although you probably can't read this if your computer isn't plugged in) for your dry wit.

(Note to those wondering about the phrase "It won't do." That is an idiomatic phrase that generally means it isn't good enough, or it won't work. For example, if I call my boss and say, "Sorry I didn't show up yesterday or call you, but I'll come in later and work overtime..." He/she might reply, "Sorry, but that just won't do. You are fired." HTH...)

Have not yet been to Greenwood Park, and pretty much had decided to give it a pass, as I've heard it has become swamped with strollers. But Mr. Roundy's comments offer misanthropes like me some encouragement, so maybe I'll drop in after all.

Z from Bay Ridge says:
I was there this passed weekend. Having never been to a beer garden before and having read this comic beforehand, I thought the place wasn't bad. Yes there were kids and people with strollers, but even for a Saturday night there was enough room to move away from them and have a pleasant conversation with friends. Overall I thought it wasn't bad.
