We know wo things for sure about Casa Bonita right now… They’re going to reopen sometime in May, and when they do the line to get in will be crazy long. However, one guy has started an online line and it’s long too!

Jesse Vogel started the Facebook group titled “The Great Wait in Line Event to eat the first night at Casa Bonita opening night!“ It has gained more than 10,000 people marked as interested, with more than 900 people saying they will join the line.

“Everyone! This is far better than sleeping outside of BestBuy for a TV. This is sleeping outside for a once-in-a-lifetime historic event! Gather outside Casa Bonita to get in line for the opening night we’ve all been waiting for. It’s only three months away; and a couple hundred feet from west Colfax… What could go wrong? lol. But seriously, have fun, be safe, come to us if you need help; we will need to band together as a respectful family to pull this one off and be the first people to eat at the new restaurant on opening day,” Vogel posted.

Vogel has reportedly spoken with all of the managers of establishments that neighbor Casa Bonita to make them aware of the event.

Vogel has established a list of rules for “line waiters” that will help foster a positive experience for the people participating and neighboring business. These including camping rules.

For example: “Line Waiters cannot arrive before 7 PM (except on event day Sundays.) On Sundays, Line Waiters can arrive at or just before the event time begins. They cannot camp until after 10 pm and must be fully engaged with the events or spending money as a patron at an establishment if there before 7 PM. At 7 PM, Line Waiters can lay a spread opposite of the eateries on the west of Casa Bonita and sit peacefully and chill but no tents until after 10 PM.”

The full set of rules can be found on the event Facebook page.
