So it's exciting to hear that the Wynwood hangout could be getting an OK from the City of Miami Department of Fire-Rescue to unshutter "the outside part of Wood" before the end of this week.
Last Thursday, the tavern posted the bad news to its Facebook page.
"The Fire Inspector came and told us," owner Cesar Morales wrote, "that we could NOT open the back part of Wood."
On Friday evening, Morales and Wood were still waiting on their appointment with the inspector.
