Luke looked at the plaque. It was very nice. It was silver with the words engraved by a diamond blade. He had bought it and had it engraved today, the first anniversary of the opening of the original bar. As he looked at it, he almost cried.
Of course, that was because of the large pile of onions next to him.
He put the onions on the cart and pushed it into the storage room. The storage room was nearly a square mile. It had everything a bar could need, from cherries to Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters, from spare light conductors to salt shakers. Luke dumped the onions in a corner and went into the main room.
The main room was the largest of the 103 rooms. Besides the storage room, there were 100 hotel rooms upstairs and two huge, top-quality, state-of-the-art bathrooms. The main room was almost seven square miles. It had a closed-off acid pit in the corner for executions, a huge library in one corner, a duck-racing track, an Olympic-sized swimming pool with several slides and diving boards, hundreds of tables, a huge electronic message board, dozens of huge Holo-Vid TV projectors, a few huge flat-screen TVs, and an incredibly long bar with hundreds of stools. Thousands of brand-new iMacs were on various tables. About fifty robotic bar-keepers were behind the bar waiting for customers. More janitorial robots took care of the rest of the bar, and a bunch of security droids roamed around, waiting for the bar to open and the inevitable fights to begin. There was even a wormhole which could connect to two alternate universes, one in the EV:O galaxy and one in the EV:N galaxy. There were also various other very nice things. On the electronic message board Luke posted:

The bar was, of course, on Evildrome. However, it was not owned by the pirates. After some discussions, Luke was granted permission to make the bar and the surrounding grounds an independent nation, officially titled the Nation of Boozerama. It had a very nice landing strip and parking lot (with another wormhole capable of admitting ships from other EV universes in) which could accommodate thousands of ships of all types, from all three EV universes. Luke even had landing docks for Alien cruisers and fighters, Wraith, hyperiods, Krypt pods, strange asteroids, and an odd-looking one which Luke hoped could accommodate TCTLIDS.
Luke got out his personal electronic key to the bar, seen below,
and opened up the door from the inside. Next to the door was a bright orange sign reading: Notice: Feel free to blow up this bar as many times as you want. It and everything in it can regenerate. Luke proudly sat on the first bar stool, right next to another plaque proclaiming that the bar stools had been bought in memory of Insano. Then he frowned. One piece of equipment hadnt arrived yet.
The soda machine.
Luke gulped and quickly locked the door again. He waited for hours. Finally, a small scoutship landed outside the bar. A group of workers walked out and unloaded the machine. The carried it over to the door, which Luke opened, and they set it in the soda machines designated area. Luke nervously asked, Youre sure it has water and every soda and juice type ever made, right?
And the Pepsi dispenser...
...is invisible to Pepsi-haters, just like you requested, sir.
Luke paid them and they left. After sighing with relief, Luke turned on the OPEN sign again.
The Boozerama Bar New Era has begun.
