Love The Best Jukebox in Town

The other night I found myself hanging out in Wedgwood with some friends who were home for Christmas. After hitting up trivia night at the Wedgwood Broiler we found ourselves at the bar in Wong’s Kitchen, a Chinese restaurant on 95th St and 35th Ave. It’s a small bar, thirty people there would feel like a flood, but the drinks were cheap and the atmosphere was real. What surprised me most about Wong’s Kitchen was that they have what might be the one of the best jukeboxes in town. It was one of those jukeboxes where I put in a dollar and didn’t even make it make it a third of the way through the list before I had to put in more money. They had all my favorite timeless classics – Fleetwood Mac’s “You Make Loving Fun,” Roy Orbison’s “Cryin’,” The Smiths’ “This Charming Man,” America’s “Ventura Highway,” and most importantly, Hall & Oates and Soundgarden, my two rekindled burning loves of 2007. I am now smitten with Wong’s Kitchen.
Linda’s has got a great selection of local bands and more modern indie stuff, and before I went to Wong’s had probably been my favorite. What do you think is the best Jukebox in town?
