Welcome to the Clocktower
« on: March 05, 2009, 12:41:19 am »
With all the virtual drinking (usually based on actual drinking in our separate locales) in other threads, I decided to open a virtual pub.



Welcome and enjoy your stay.

The waitstaff is friendly...
Spoiler: ShowHide

So order up your favorite beverage, socialize with your fellow steamfolk and enjoy the show!

The nice thing about a virtual pub:  The answer is usually "whatever kind you would like"

Nice place you have here.  I do like leather club chairs, books on the wall, a nice fire in a marble fireplace, and congenial company.

I think I will have... a Belhaven's. 


Thanks, mate!


Cheers!

Looks around, nods to the assembled gentry, takes a leather wing chair by the fireplace and orders...

The best scotch youve got, neat.
Now to find somewhere to sit, aha, there by the fireplace looks nice.
