She polishes the last of the glasses, hung in neat little rows over the bar. Checks the bottles lined up behind her, hundreds of them in all shapes, sizes, and planet of origin. Makes sure the taps are fresh and ready to go, and that the blood warmer is set to body temperature (cuz those pesky Vamps hate cold blood).
She looks at the clocks on the wall, set to every time zone (plus a few of the most well-traveled planets and alternate realities). Almost time to open.
Plenty of places to sit. Plenty of food to share. She hopes that all writers of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Spec Fic (plus anyone else who happens to swing by from time to time) feels at home. Able to let their hair down, talk about their day, and just chill. Support each other.
A bell dings. Opening Time!
So there ya have it, folks! YA has their Random Musings thread. TIO has the Landfill. They've got Sunshine Cafe's and Comedy Cabaret's, but now there's....um....this new little unnamed corner of the world.
The "must pertain to the writing of SF/F" rule doesn't apply here. It's a place for folks to be folks. Chat about your WIP, your awful day at work, how much you want a light saber of your very own. I may occasionally merge OT threads here, but for the most part, it's a safe haven for Off Topic conversation.
As for the name, I'm taking suggestions. And then there will be a poll. So far, we've got:
CALLAHAN'S CROSSTIME SALOON
COWBOY FENG'S SPACE BAR & GRILL
MOS EISLEY CANTINA
The Prancing Pony
C.H.A.O.S. - Cantina for the Haven of Aliens and Other Species

The Black Hole
The Restaurant at The End of [The Universe] [Cyberspace] [The Interwebs] [The Internets]
Al Gore's House

Light Sabers & Magic Wands

Mix and match 'em, or come up with something new. Let's give this new hangout a name!
