In remembrance of Neon Cactus - A Grand Prix Story

Neon Cactus, famous for cheap drinks, a big dance floor, and Bruce Barker the Piano Man, will close its doors for good effective immediately.

Treasures are not always shiny. Sometimes they aren’t pure or safe for children. Sometimes they take away as memories as they provide.
