I’m tellin’ ya, I’d be slapping the rent money in my whiny ol’ Landlord’s grasping hands right now iffn I didn’t need to buy a tavern. I figured out that iffn I own the tavern, they can’t throw me out with a No shirt-No service sign like I’m used to getting thrown out. So, it’s No shirt - we’re cool with that, service, is standard at MY Tavern in #MyGCG, iffn I use the rent money to acquisition one. Now all’s I need is a tavern name. I’d ask my Landlord, he’s got that artsy word thing in his brain but he’s all focused on 2 years, 7 months, no rent paid. And I say “yet!”
I tried Tavern Shopping from the inside. I visited a total of several to get the feel of the places, ambiantly stuff, y’know, critical to the successful operation of a Tavern. That No shirt, we’re cool vibe - I mighta come close a few times - the average place has lots of lights and professional sound systems. Very shirty, really.
I live under a rock, so’s I figured finding just the right rock building might make for a pretty good: And That’s No Shirt! Tavern. (jes workin’ onna name).
I decided I need a cave tavern. Cave places don’t shout “Get a shirt!, ya dirty [ha ha funny word]!”
So the next obvious thing to do was to build another cave. Just like my cave, so’s I drew up my cave into a No Shirt Bar & ... It’s rockin’, with a swanky drinks bar and a grog bar and a roaring fireplace and an outdoor patio. BAM! One tiny cave-building event and I’m done!!
I have one rock in inventory. New plan: landmarks, shopping, borrow some MC$, a bit of rent money, what’s the concern?
I started by considering where I started, at the GCG Welcome pub. Cuz that's pretty poplar place. Got to have "it" going on. Stood there a while considerin' stuff.
Here’s where I’m gonna save you lots of time. I went through plenty of pubs and bars and taverns and licensed places and bootleg places and a noody place to find the place what suited my needs: welcome to the shirtless. I think by now, we all know that “shirtless” is a youthanisim, means something else but you say shirtless, when you mean something else, like extreme casual styling. [Reminds me, need to vacuum my hair again soon.] Sort of a come as you are sort of place.
Success was all an accident, you know, when stumbling around randomly meets results. I found The Perfect Thing in Falconrose. #MYGCG ROCKS!
Falconrose: I was there because a landmark says: Tea room. I’m not sayin’ I threw logic at this project. This Falconrose tea room place is totally a swankest place, one of those places you have to pick things up while stickin’ out a pinky. Kind of place yur Mum whacks you on the back of the head and says “Spit it out! That’s for the cat.”
“She’s a NEKO, Mum.”
That kind of swank. So, didn’t feel shirtless. But Hey! I’m a sign reader, if not a follower and this Falconrose sign says we got buildings fer sure. So after a peek inside (full-on out of my league nice furniture and other decoratin’) I went over to the Tearoom bridge and I saw: a big rock.
Well dang these camera limits - there must be a pretty cool place setting up on a rock like that! I am flying over to that rock and looking at the cool building! Flying, flying, flying, and landing, and empty. Not expected, but I wandered over the the edge and saw the ichthyosaurs. Or swimming brontyosaurs, or Cecil as I think of ‘em. They looked chill, gotta join 'em.
I made my way down from the big rock.
I found this pub, this Fox tavern/pub place. Pretty nice, yep, too nice for the unshirted waters I am tryin’ to navimcircumgate.
So’s off to the ichthyosaurs and I’m yelling and they still seemed chill - and I notice a light in the distance - drawn like the proverbial moth, like another youthanism but meybe older, or something, oh yeah, proverbial.
It’s perfect! See what I’m seeing? Shirtless.
Full circle back to the Landlord: “Yur gonna laugh! I’d be slapping yur rent money into yur hand right now iffn I didn’t need to buy a tavern!”
He did that thing where he says nothing, includin' not laughin'. Works for me. I bought the Wretched Tavern, already named too, simple-peasy, and it’s all set up. (Comes with instructions.)
The Wretched Raven at home in #MyGCG. Come as you are, topless.
