After Miranda’s visit Joe had gone about with all the final touches to make the place presentable. One of which beside the drink bar was actual food. Joe had brought a nice supply with him. Along with this he had had three non-flame cookers. He was finally ready to t open the place up formally in the next few hours. After he had everything plugged in, polished and ready to go Joe placed the open sign up.
Now Open the Fantail Dragon mixed drinks cocktails, and beers. Fresh food: Tonight's offering, Beer battered fish, home fried potatoes and salad.
Joe being all set up sat and waited lest someone should notice the place on his first opening and decide to stop in. He sat at the bar sipping a cranapple juice and reading the latest news.
Ade had heard about the changes at the Fantail Lounge… er, Fantail Dragon. He hadn’t made it to the Green Dragon on Deep Space - K5 as he had been too involved in a big Poker game with the Auditors Department down on the lower levels of the station. he regretted that now, as from what he had heard, it sounded like a good night. So, he was very interested in what Joe had made of the old Lounge on the limited budget the Captain would have given him.
When he arrived he initially couldn’t see anyone else there yet, then he saw Joe at the bar with a drink. Ah! Well! If Joe has a drink then it must be open, he thought.
“I wouldn’t want to see you have to drink alone!” Ade told Joe.
