Welcome to the neighborhood, Commonwealth

I had the chance to attend a tasting at Fremont East newcomer Commonwealth last night and, though one could wax poetic forever about the flourishes and character of the joint (and oh, I will), it all boils down to one thing: This is a very worthy addition to the popular downtown bar district.

Signs of life at Neonopolis

Signs of life at Neonopolis

When I first heard of Neonopolis several years ago, I assumed they were talking about a day-glo Greek temple where toga-clad philosopher types hung out a few thousand years ago and talked about math and logic and such.
