SAW Through The Mask

Blitz Bar, the hottest new joint in town, is positively popping tonight as all the Halcyon locals charge in for the “wasted in 5 minutes or less” promotion.

SAW– SAW PUSH.

Lance– Exactly, so what’s the occasion?

SAW– SAW LIKE PATRONIZE LOCAL BUSINESS, KEEP BIG INDUSTRY FROM SATURATE MARKET WITH COOKIE CUTTER CRAP.
