(Owner, Tristen)
The press release states: "The time has finally arrived! The Pit Bar will be opening Wednesday, August 1st at 7pm SLT featuring the soothing vocals of Criss Covers, that will touch your heart and leave you wanting more. 
(Musician Criss Covers)
The retro old neighborhood bar feel will make you right at home.  It's a perfect place for chilling to some of the best music of SL.  If you haven't seen it yet.. you won't be disappointed."

I stopped in early to visit with my good friend Emma Portilo.  I also grabbed a photo of the still empty and not quite open bar and owner Tris10 otherwise known as Tristen.  This bar promises to be a cool hang out and Tristen even built in a classic theater in the back room and up a very cool elevator.  We watched a movie there a short time back before the bar was ready for opening.  I asked if I could snaps a pic of Criss doing pre-set up.  Criss Covers, or Criss Fredriksson, is a Chilean singer.  His genres including 70;s, 80;s, Rcoki, Pop, Easy Listening and Country.  He also performs on occasion acoustic set with guest guitarists.  His press release states he creates intimate and mesmerizing rendition of 70;s and 80;s and contemporary songs that will fill your heart and soul.  "Criss' artistry and obsession for music comes through in his performances.  Performing since childhood, his well honed voice draws crowds both in RL and SL.
