Don't cut limes or reuse glassware. All of your answers are here. You need only to search with Google. We can fill in the blanks.

Thanks for the sort of answer Ratty :)
What's google?
I definitely didn't search there first.
I'm too patient for that.

I'm giving this a nudge over to Food & Drink, since that's a better fit.

You don't need to have a permit in order to run a playa bar, but as Ratty hinted depending on what you're serving there may be food permit implications. if you stick to shelf-stable mixers (bottled cranberry juice and OJ instead of frozen or stuff that requires refrigeration), you won't need it unless the camp you're starting is going to be a big operation (if you'll be preparing food for 125 or more people, a permit is required). All the food permit stuff can be found here.

What you should do is spend some time surfing around the Food & Drink board, as there are a few different threads that talk about best practices for running a playa bar. Good luck!
