things i never expected to learn at apple

While eating dinner at work today, one of the engineers mentioned there was a secret club at Disney Land called “Club 33” that was accessible only to members who paid exorbitant fees. Confident it was an urban myth, I fired up my web browser and went to snopes.com and then wikipedia, where I found the following:

Club 33 is a private club located in the heart of the New Orleans Square section of Disneyland. Officially maintained as a “secret” feature of the theme park, the entrance of the club is located next to the Blue Bayou Restaurant at “33 Royal Street” with the entrance recognizable by an ornate address plate with the number 33 engraved on it.

Members enjoy access to the club’s exclusive restaurant and full bar. It is the only location within Disneyland to offer alcoholic beverages, though Disneyland has a park wide liquor license and has set up bars throughout the park for private events. Club 33’s wine list includes vintages priced at $200.
