The Bar 2016 Edition

Post by trilobyte » Thu Dec 31, 2015 5:03 pm

Since the clock's been striking midnight in a few different timezones already, I'm kicking open the doors on the shiny new 2016 Bar thread. For those who don't know what this is... this is what's called a banter thread. Friendly conversation as you would have with friends (old, new, and not yet acquainted with) at a neighborhood bar.

Black Rock City has lots and lots (and lots) of bars, and while the art and spectacle are amazing... the people and the interactions are pretty amazing too. Everyone is welcome to join in. The more the merrier, and this place never runs out of barstools, booths, or never-ending blanket (NEB) to cuddle under.

For those interested in catching up, the 2015 bar thread started here, and the last post is here. If you've really got a lot of time on your hands or are feeling nostalgic, the original bar thread can be found here.

Drinks all round (whatever your beverage of choice, and regardless of whether you're drinking alcohol)! Cheers!

Ooof, pant, pant, hark.... Oh, hey there! Sorry 'bout the mess. But I think I got the new roof done in time for this here new Bar.
I mean... in this neighborhood, come Midnight, there will be such a hail of bullets going straight up -- and coming straight down... last New Year's Eve my water-bed turned into a fountain. But no such worries with this Bar!

This will do nicely. flops on the dusty couch and pulls out a giant bottle of champagne. A toast. May all your wishes come true. Happy New Year.
