Pam and Clint come into the saloon almost every night. I'd probably go out of business if they stopped coming. So make sure you don't drive them away!”

Salmon Dinner Dear (Player),

Here's a recipe from my saloon. I only share this with my good friends!

Four Hearts

Four Hearts.png

Enter the Saloon during open hours.

Note: Only occurs if your friendship with Pam is at 2 hearts or more.

Details 
When you enter the bar, Gus will be sitting at one of the tables looking dejected. When you ask what's wrong, he'll tell you that the saloon is having hard times financially. He'll admit that at least one problem is that Pam isn't paying off her tab and he's afraid to confront her because they are friends. Pam will then enter and ask for a drink. Gus will be flustered and concede, but you will get the choice to either say:
• "You need to pay your tab right now!" -50 friendship points.
• "The saloon isn't doing well, financially" +15 friendship points. Pam will be somewhat upset but she will pay her tab off and Gus will give her the drink she asked for.
  • Your relationship with Pam will not be affected either way

Seven Hearts
