One of my favorite things about 16-bit is their drink menu! They are named after people like ‘Billy Nye’ and ‘Kevin Bacon’ and Winnie Cooper’ – adding to the nostalgia of the arcade. This is the “Carrie Fisher” – BACARDI COCONUT RUM + BLUEBERRY VODKA + PINEAPPLE JUICE + LIME JUICE + BLUE CURACAO + PURPLE ROCK CANDY. You get to keep the cup, too!
