'The bar on the edge of space!' ... 'Home of the renowned space lime!' ... 'The-'
What's a space lime? What corner of the galaxy have you been hiding in?Our limes are grown in zero gravity, giving them a ... psychedelic kick.Here, I'll make you a Lime Punch, it's our most famous cocktail.Perfect for beginners.
So, tell me, what species are you? Human? We don't get many of those passing through since the fall. Well, whatever your reason for travelling this far, you're safe.I only ask you to abide by House Rules and share a story or two.I love stories.They're the perfect accompaniment to any space lime cocktail, don't you think? I'm actually working on archiving a few- let future generations know what went down in this crazy bar of mine over the years.Let me know if you're interested.
Anyway, enjoy your drink and enjoy your stay. Feel free to look around- our notice board is down the hall. But watch your back, you never know who- or what- you might bump into.
