"It's the summer of 1990. Five childhood friends met after a long time in The City they grew up. Recalling all the good times they had as kids, the mischiefs, the early love sparks, even the fights, they decided that they shouldn't let life split their paths again. They decided to meet every year in summertime, get together and also bring all the young people of their home town close to each other. To do that, they created a bar, and the name of that bar was La Luna.
For six summers La Luna was the meeting place for all the young people of The City. In its wooden walls people became lovers in trance, under its cherry tree lovers kissed for the first time, on its stone floor they danced all night long, its only roof was the sky and the stars and the moon would smile down on them until daylight came. Boys would use smooth moves to get the girls, they in turn would play hard to get, spirits were high and cocktails were plenty. It was a great time to be there!
As time flows though, people grow and change, just like the music that played in La Luna. Life caught up with everyone and put different priorities in their paths. The five childhood friends were not young anymore. Some of them got married, others moved too far away, no one had time to be in The City for the whole summer.
It's June of 1997. Five childhood friends met in midday outside La Luna. They took a final look at her and started slowly taking down the wooden walls.
La Luna was an idea that grew out of love and became a reality. That reality in turn became a sweet memory that will live in the minds of all who had the chance to walk and dance on its floor, under the smiling stars and Moon."
