Sameth's wiping his face with his shirt as he's just come from the forge. Milliways means he can get something to eat and drink without having to properly clean up. At the counter, he gets a napkin and shifts behind the counter where first he cleans off a little more at the sink then pulls out the cocktail book.

Specials
Spiced Wine
Ginger Fire
Iron Dream
What projects are you working on?


Then he sits down with a spiced wine and some bread and cheese to see who's around. He's been so busy with the Southerlings and then his work that he feels like its been a while since he's been in.

(OOC: Open until the next Happy Hour goes up or it scrolls. Slightly inspired by my discovering Forged in Fire and creative smiths.)

When William comes in from the back, he's shaking off his hat, the storm from last night hasn't fully left. All he wants is to get something warm, when Bar asks him to bartend and he starts by getting a big bowl of chili and some cornbread along with coffee as he sets up the specials.

Specials
Hot tea or coffee
Chili
Whiskey
Beer
Free hot drink if you're coughing.


Then he digs into his food and looks around, he's hearing a lot of sneezing and coughing which is never a good sign.

Quentin loves living in San Francisco most of the time, but today he hates all the hills and having to wrestle with other people to do the grocery shopping. He knows its an important chore but it sucks and when he finds Milliways instead of the cafe he was looking for, he relaxes. When he goes up to the counter and asks Bar to hold his groceries and gets a napkin he shrugs, its an easier thing to do.

Specials
Beer
Wine
Anything fizzy is half off.


Then he pours himself a soda and opens a box of cookies as he looks to see who's around. He hasn't remembered to take off his disguise off yet so he looks human with rounded ears and ash blond hair.

Sameth enters carrying various lists for helping the Southerlings and adjusts his surcoat. There's so much to do, but there's always a lot to do, it would be strange if there wasn't anything. When he sits down at the counter and shifts his sword from habit, a napkin appears and he says, "Yes, I'd be happy to."

Then he goes behind the counter and pulls out the cocktail book as he considers recipes.

Specials
Spiced Wine
Promised Land Martini
Crown Float


Once they're up, he makes himself a spiced wine and as he watches the counter, starts making some sketches on the back of one of his lists for improving Lirael's hand.

(OOC: This week, I read the newest book of Sam's canon. Help me share the happy new canon feeling.)

Wilford's feeling pretty good today, despite appearances. He comes in today with the stiff gait of someone who's probably hiding a broken rib or two. He's not wearing his glasses today, but the cut across the bridge of his nose and the bruising on his face is probably a good indicator of why.

He doesn't even have to wonder why he's served with a napkin this week. But as far as reprimands go, he's had worse.

SPECIALS:

Anything at eye level


If he can't reach it, you're not getting it.



[ooc: Millitimed to after something that hasn't been finished yet. Thread hopping encouraged!]

Wilford is not riding out the tail end of a bad trip when he comes in today. Nor is he attempting to drown half the bar. But he did make an awfully big mess the last time he was in, so instead of the lunch he came in for today, he gets a napkin telling him to work off the costs of the clean-up instead.

All right then. If that's how things are going to be.

SPECIALS

Green Stuff
This Blue Shit
Whatever the Fuck That Thing Is


The bottles are all helpfully laid out on the bar, with their weird labels and contents that look varying degrees of radioactive. Or you can order off the specials menu, if you don't feel like potentially getting killed today.

[ooc: Open until the next Happy Hour post. Thread hopping encouraged.]
 
 
20 January 2017 @ 11:46 am
Last night was odd. Wilford needs about six more hours of morning before he thinks he'll even start to feel human. He woke up in his dressing room (which means he passed out at some point), to find it a disaster, and nope. This is not what he wants to deal with right now.

As soon as he finds Milliways, Wilford wanders behind the Bar and finds the remote for the TV, and finds a local news channel. And the headline he finds* goes a little bit of the way into jumpstarting his attention span.

So it's right about now that he notices the napkin on the bar. Because of course it's there.

Specials:

Red Death
Black Death
Death Sentence
Creeping Death


With that done, Wilford leans against the bar to watch the news.


*[ooc: both links mildly nsfw; drugs, violence, crude humour. Open until the next Happy Hour post. Threadhopping encouraged!]

It's hard to miss the shenanigans when Wilford comes into the bar today, sans dog. He's also not surprised when he gets a napkin instead of the lunch he orders. That's how things are going to be, it seems. That's fine. Even if he is a terrible bartender, being back here will give him an excellent vantage point to watch everyone panic and scramble to pay their bills. And what's stopping him from helping in the only way he knows how?

SPECIALS:

Easy Money
Joe's Cash Money
Miss Money Penny
Run for Your Money
Show Me Tha Money
Money Shot

Survive a shot of the green stuff and drink for free


As usual, the dangerous-looking bottle is on the bar.



After Miguel's mishap, the bottle of green stuff is nowhere to be found, as Wilford does not actually want to do more cell time for yet another murder.
 
 
02 January 2017 @ 12:35 pm
It's been a weird couple of weeks. Network stress, werewolf stress, stray dog stress, and added heat wave stress have made Wilford seriously believe the universe is out to get him. Or, apparently, the multiverse. He's not even surprised when he gets the napkin before he's even able to order anything.

Specials

What the hell
What she's having
She's paying


Once again, Wilford finds a bottle of something that doesn't look safe to even touch, let alone drink, and puts it on the bar. He adds a small note the the bottom of the specials board.

Survive a shot of the green stuff and drink for free.


Happy Hour is open!

Ivan wanted a break which wasn't possible now that he was running the Embassy and Miles was searching for Galeni. Miles would figure something out, but he didn't know how to stop. When Milliways met him at their shared door, he smiled and started to loosen the high collar of his green uniform.

At the counter, he received a napkin and sighed then said, "I will, a chance to talk about something new." With a little searching, he found the cocktails book and spent an enjoyable time picking drinks with names that he was happy Miles would never see.

Specials
Hyper Green Fairy
Night Skies Over London
Spicy Admiral
What's making your life hectic tonight? Share and you might get a discount.


Then he pours himself a glass of very nice wine and looks around to see who's in Milliways.

(OOC: Another elf free space but one to complain in them about. Ivan's from about the middle of Brothers in Arms. Open until it scrolls or another Happy Hour post goes up and I'll be around late tonight.)</s

Wilford is in for a nasty surprise when he approaches the Bar. Instead of the drink he orders, he's given a napkin with a very simple set of instructions written on it.

"Like hell."

You've been nothing but trouble. This, or scrub the kitchens. Goodnight!

It takes him a moment to pick his jaw up from the floor. He hadn't been warned about this sort of thing, and isn't terribly pleased about it. He's also not terribly keen to find out what happens if he refuses, like he wants to do. So it's with much grumbling and muttered swearing that Wilford makes his way to the other side of the Bar to figure out what he's supposed to be doing. After a few minutes, he's worked out the specials board at least.

SPECIALS

Sex with an Alligator
An Orgy of Liquors
Wild Squirrel Sex


He has also found a bottle of something roughly the colour of antifreeze. He barely gets the cap off to test the merchandise before the fumes from it send him reeling. The bottle goes on the bar, and the specials board gets a quick revision.

Survive a double shot of the green stuff and drink free.

 Marcus walked in the bar area and he was wearing his signature black leather coat, with a few yellow stripes on it and began to write the daily specials of the night.

I'm a cyborg terminator,

so tonight's special is tastes of War, machines and the Human Resistance. 

For all you folks who like beer:

A wide selection of bitter IPAs
Spicy beers
Lucifer 
and more

Marcus rolls his fingers around a empty beer glass as he bends along the side. "Hope this bartending shift isn't as boring it's made out to be."

And for your wine

We got some dessert wines
and some super dry wines


 
 
Current Mood: calm

Sasha brought another stack of paperwork in today, but when he asks Bar for coffee, 1000ml, black, paperwork, for the facilitation of, he gets a napkin instead. Tag, you're the bartender, I need some sleep.

He didn't know this was how it worked, but he has seen people tending bar before, so he does know the conventions to be observed:

Specials
All German beer half price
Saturn coffee free (in memory of the Nowhere Islands) (only one per customer)

He stashes his paperwork behind the counter and gets himself one of those German beers instead.

Mun is at work; insta-slowtime in effect for all tags until evening US/Eastern. Open till the next one is posted.

Sameth enters carrying four sheathed knives, all small, lightweight and of different metals. Younger Jim's commission reminded him of how many spells can be put into knives and the possibilities of them.

He's been working for a few days and now at a stopping point, so his shirt is clean and his hair a little wet when he enters. At the counter, he considers notes when he gets one of his own and smiles, its been a while since he bartended and will give him time to think about the knife and if he should let Security know.

Specials
Royal Silver
King's Gold
Iron Butterfly


Once he's happy with the specials, they suit the kind of work he's been doing, he gets a glass of wine and a roll from the kitchen before looking around to see who's about.

(OOC: Open until it scrolls or another happy hour goes up, whichever comes first. I'll be here for most of the night.)

On the third and last day of Cubefall, the Master of Ceremonies, still dressed in silver and beaded fringe, stops by the Bar and receives a note on a rainbow colored napkin. The Bar enjoys it when Emcee hosts happy hours, and she is only too glad to oblige.

After requesting some music, and getting a portable speaker linked to a smartphone, Emcee sets to writing out some specials on the board while shaking her tush to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." The playlist for the evening includes other upbeat selections from Queen, ABBA, Madonna, Prince, and the like.

HAPPY HOUR SPECIALS

Your choice of alcoholic (schnapps, wine cooler, etc.) or non-alcoholic (fruit juice, Kool-Aid, etc.) beverage in any of these colors:

Red
Orange
Yellow
Green
Blue
Purple



With that done, she pours a glass of gin (clear) for herself, and nimbly hops up to sit on the counter.

"Come and get it, darlings!" she sings out over the music.


[OOC: Millitiming this because of bodily difficulties that prevented me from doing it last week. And I really wanted to do it. So! I invite you to put on your Cubefall hats one more time (or not). Feel free to tag each other party style if you like. Thanks <3]

Ah, the end of the universe. Franklin's been here a few times ... but Milliways has always been his favourite version.

So when Bar sighs at his request for a beer and tell him to get it himself (as well as for the next fifty people in line) he's happy to hop over and work off his past self's tab.

SPECIALS

Whiskey Sour
Vodka Sunset
Chocolate Milkshake


...that's about all he knows how to make, unless it's a simple "Jack & Cola".

Bar has turned very red today. Courfeyrac had come down for lunch, and received a note asking if he'd mind 'tending later. And of course he doesn't! He's been meaning to give it a go for a while.

But this is not a normal day, and while a small part of him is reflective, even a little sad, the rest of him thinks it's a rather good opportunity to celebrate something that was so nearly glorious. So, he gets busy for the rest of the afternoon. Red flags are hung along the back of the bar. He chalks tiny tricolours around the edges of the specials board, and requests bowls of red, white and blue rosettes to place along the bar-top. Bunting hangs off the outer edge, and music is carefully chosen from the popular revolutionary choices of his day, playing softly from iPod speakers.

Then he cracks out the vodka, and sets to mixing up shot glasses of spiked jelly (he's read about this! Too good an opportunity to pass up!) in the colours of the flag. He doesn't make the cake himself - be thankful, Milliways - but asks Bar. And so, the centrepiece is a giant sponge iced in the shape of a barricade, a blond figure on top waving a flag in one hand, a sword in the other. 

(There is also a carefully made hat lying on its side among the barricade furniture. Alas, good headpiece! Sorely missed.)




CITIZENS

Any friend of the Republic drinks their choice at half price. 
Cake and jelly drinks are free.

Vive la Révolution!!!


He does wonder whether celebrating one's death-day in such a manner could be seen as inappropriate, but it's his anniversary - their anniversary - and remembering the fight is not something he'll feel guilty for. He does dress in the clothes of his time out of respect, but his cheerful grin is undimmed as he takes his place behind the bar, and awaits customers.

(And tries the vodka jelly. SO GOOD.)


[OOC: Here to celebrate the June Rebellion, and the death of Les Amis! Please do chat and thread hop. Open until no one wants to play any more. <333

Decoration day always leaves William feeling tired and missing his father, finding Milliways in the stables is a relief. When he goes to the counter and he's asked to tend, he's happy to do it.

Decoration Day Specials

Lost for Words

Your drink's free if you've fought in a war or lost someone to war.


Then he makes a coffee and adds some whiskey to it before sitting down at the counter to see who's around.

Eleven year old Anakin Solo slinks through the door, dark brown hair covering his eyes (but none of his bright orange jumpsuit), as he heads covertly for his seat--

Hey, wait, this isn't the lecture theatre. This is Milliways! He brightens, though he still isn't quite smiling, and hops on his favourite bar stool.

"It's a bit early, so no blue fizz, just a fruit smoothie please."

Make it yourself comes a post-it in Aurebesh.

Anakin blinks. He looks around, then peers over and around the Bar. No one there... Well, he never totally accepted this "magic" thing anyway (despite just receiving a note from an inanimate block of wood), so he nods decisively, clambers over Bar, and starts hunting down bananas, strawberries and a blender.

Preteen Jedi for all your nonalcoholic services.

Ivan's stretching his shoulders and undoing the collar of his undress greens when he finds himself in Milliways. After a day of feeding data cards into a computer in the basement of the London Embassy, this is a nice surprise to find instead of his room. When he goes up to the counter, he gets a napkin and laughs, "I'd be happy to."

After pouring himself a glass of beer, he flips through the cocktail book to find some interesting choices.

Specials
London Fog 2

Once he's written everything, he nods and looks around to see who will join him.
