Was my first time. I kinda like the place already. Chill music at the right volume enabled us to chit chat freely.

Was with Suzanne,

Jason and Jolynn, who is born with cheeks made for pinching.

They all had mugs after mugs of snow beer (total 12 mugs) while I took

milo
(cause I had stomach discomfort. It’s not bo steady, Jolynn. You know, on any given normal day, I would have joined you)

and the bottomless groundnuts.

I think the place is kinda cool to hang out with friends as the price of beer is really cheap and you can also entertain yourself with darts

and pool.
