Just got back from a nice trip to San Fran, vacation this time and not work. I'll post some pics in a little while.

Hey who replaced my bar towel with this clean thing?

Glad you're back. Quiet around here since Fox premiered the movie. I think everyone is still a little hung over from the after party...

I had a family member in SF a few weeks ago who posted a lot of pics to Facebook. It looks like a gorgeous place. I've never been there.

Anyone have any idea on how to make the JR real? It has become apparent that my 15 year trucking career is pretty much over. Sucks, but that's life. I've always wanted to own a bar... Too bad I don't have the capital. Finding investors and raising money is not my strong suit. I need a few Harvard business classes on that I think.

Jerry, I'm in my 30's. The whole bar thing makes a nice thing to imagine, but in real life, beyond self employment and all, I have no experience whatsoever that would qualify me for the restaurant business. A nice place with good food and live music is a fun thing to dream about, though I'm pretty sure this is as close as I will ever get.

I've spent my adult life in the trucking industry. Mostly as a driver... Unfortunately, the issues that put me in the hospital a couple of months ago have made it a bad idea to keep driving. If I were a company driver, it wouldn't be a big deal. As I'm an owner operator, with equipment, insurance, and accounting bills that don't stop even when I do, this becomes a bit of a problem.

I'm working on plan B,C, and D right now though, and hopefully it will work out.

'Nuff about all that!

What'll you have?

Although I've hired a few new people here and there, my staff is currently made up o the very best and brightest in the game. So, to work here, all I can say is hang out, contribute, help others, and I prefer people who will stand up for what's right and defend others even when it's difficult. All squads are eligible, as I don't allow squad discussion or politics in here.

In the mean time, feel free to hang out and have a good time.

Ooh, didn't know this game had a bar!

I'll have a Coke please. Not too much ice, I hate it when places fill 3/4ths of it with ice and call it a drink haha!

We pay in gold. It helps her have a little walking around money... Plus, I think she feels pity for me.

Z installed our bar into the game. Quite an honor.

Pedrinho drew my banner, and then Whip did a lot of modifications. A lot of great work, and I love it.

What! I don't pity you, Jack. :P

At the very worst, you could say I signed up here because I was a bit bored with DF and wanted something exciting to do. But definitely no pity. I mean, sure, we're bartenders and barmaids and it's part of the job to pity any and every intoxicated sob that walks through that door, but that's pretty much where that stops.

It's a pleasure, Jack. Always has been.

It was a sideways compliment Luna. A way of saying "I'm not worthy". I really do appreciate your contribution to this thread.
