*Wanders back to the Bar from the Dartboard*
As I feared, my talent for darts hasn't magically improved. But, as I've said in the past, while I may play with little skill, I make up for it with great enthusiasm!
Barkeep, a round for the house on my tab, please!

You've been promoted to a barmaid? Ummm.. congrats?
Yeah..... that wasn't quite what I had in mind, but now I've tried the uniform, I can see an upside.......  :-[

I have to confess, you do look rather fetching in it. I was going to say dashing, but that doesn't quite fit

Right, lets see... I'll have a tall black russian, please. I would challenge someone to a game of bar billiards, but there doesn't seem to be a table here..?

Oh, carbon filament! I nearly tripped over someone's dodo!
You, sir! Make an effort!

*Wanders in and sits at the bar*

"Ma'am, a pint of cider if you please."

*Pays for cider and drinks whilst looking around the patrons.

Nice place, I think I could hang here for a bit.

*Begins rolling a cigarette.*

Is there a smoking section? Go forbid I'd want to break any rules.

*twiddles her thumbs by the door waiting for the 23rd*
damn close now!

*Enters and leaves hat, cloak with the cloakroom maid, walks to bar and says to Miss Heber*:-
Ahem...! I think that you ought to know Miss, that as this is a "Virtual Pub", you can drink no matter you where you are. :)
*To the barperson*:- 2 pints of Brains SA in dimpled glasses please and put it on my account thank you. There you go Miss Heber enjoy, but do take it easy though.

Oh, my, how kind of you good sir.

*orders half a dozen shots of vodka*

This is going to be interesting  ;D

*downs a shot*

Agreed, we also haven't established a location or national jurisdiction (do we need to?) and here in the UK anyone of any age can enter a pub if they serve food and they don't approach the bar. If no fodd then entry at sixteen (just no alcohol), and alcohol at eighteen.
So come on in and enjoy yourself (in moderation of course) just stay in the UK zones ;)

the actual law states that alcohol is available at 16 when accompanied by a meal, but only if it is a single pint or equivalent, having to study it for my door license (im a licensed bouncer)

* Pnakotus returns from searching under the tables ...
I found your feet for you.
* Pnakotus looks kinda befuddled for a moment ...
Um, how exactly did you loose your feet to a dodo anyway? Do I sense some weird lovecraftian dodo in our midst with a foot fetish?

    No, dodo's steal feet because they aren't very inteligent...they don't realize that they really need to be stealing flying machines to get themselves off the ground.
