**Walks in to the tones of Sgt. Pepper playing from the jukebox...**

It was twenty years ago today...

Well, not twenty years alright, but...


Oh, the good old days of The Octagon bar - can't believe I've been comming in here for a year now! LOL!

Tim and Digs for your sweet posts!

And many more s to all the wonderful and funny people I've "met" here (and to the one 'Goner I've met in real life - really wishes that a big Octagon get-together in The real life Octagon will come true some day! ) over the last year!

I'm sitting here and getting all nostalgic, thinking about all the crazy things that have happend over the last year here in the bar...

Well, off with the horns on with the show - asa wise man once said!

**Goes behind bar desk and fixes a triple Jameson-something drink**

Cheers! To all the Octagoners - thanks for everything!


**Jumps out on dancefloor**

Most of you know what has happened next. The Octagon Bar was created and is still running, albeit on life support.

My question was answered a year ago tomorrow. On that day, U2bonogirl walked in to see what all the hubbub was about. So thanks to Interference and all the Octagoners who made this place interesting enough to revisit thousands of times over the last year.

And I also hope that all the other young lovers who met here have as much success as we've had and that the friends that have been made will continue on.

** Raises a glass to the entire cast of lovers, misfits, regulars and passerbys **

As usual drinks are on the house, and your choices are only limited by your imagination. May a new group of folks add to today's regulars and build the bar back up to it's former glory.

*** Begins to walk out the door and looks back into the bar ***

I think this place could hop again with a fresh coat of paint and a little effort. It was at it's best when it captured your imagination and you saw the hole in the wall to the new addition, hammocks, hot tubs, construction workers, back rooms and bar stools. I think those things are what attracted the romantics and the dreamers.

*** Vertigo begins playing ***

Ahhh good times!

*raises her glass*
Cheers!

To many a good time, more sleepless nights then I care to count, and good friends.

s


And of course, I'll raise another glass to you and Tara. The original Octagon couple!



Now, who thinks we should party?



Get up off of that thang
and dance til you feel better
get up offa that thang...

**Runs into storage room and finds the cardboard guitar tech**



**Puts "Hothouse Flowers" on the jukebox, jumps out on dancefloor with cardboard guitar tech and starts dancing close... **

Merc, my dear, I don't think I've ever had the pleasure of properly conversing with you before!

Nice to meet you.


Can I buy you a drink?

Honestly, I can't remember either if we've talked before... I mix a lot of the Octagon-names together!

It's nice meeting you too, BS!


Well, you can buy my any kind of drink, as long as it's something including Jameson!
