Yep, it’s already sort of a scene down at the corner of 14th and S Streets NW. Y&H counted at least 20 folks waiting outside Standard at 4:57 p.m. Precisely three minutes later, when the gates swung open as scheduled to usher in the new spring season at the popular barbecue joint and beer garden, the crowd had expanded by another dozen or so. If you’re heading down now for a seat on the patio, well, good luck!
