I'm a bit of a young gopher myself, we're a bit of hobbits at heart
It's no surprise that opposums take a liking in gathering in the Midnight. The small alley  hosts a members of the opposum society of Nightfall City, and since a few month, they've been seen casually enjoying beverages in the lounge, near the fireplace, between Brewed's table  and brightblue's corner.
But another animal has made its way into the pub. The Gopher. These little rodents are very polite and always ask bartender for specific cocktails such as:
What's fascinating is that they access the pub through a completely different entrance. It's still located in the small alley, but it's much smaller, much simpler. It's an entrance that all patrons can now take, should they want to:

I've only had good experiences with gophers, myself. I once rented a tree stump from one to stay in for the winter. He was a kind fellow, a widow after his wife had passed away the previous spring. Each spring after, I think of his kindess to let me stay less than a year after his wife's departure. I wonder if his home had felt lonely.
I think that if my loved ones died, I'd pay strangers to fill their space too. Breath their air, eat their food, mess up our home.
Gophers are polite. I will have to take their small alley passage sometime. I bet they have some delicious garbage back there, full of life and stories. Thanks for the tip.
