Dirty Martin's Burgers and Beer

The home of industry, the lowerclass and the poor, the undercity exists under the sprawl of the city above. In the never ending night, people struggle to eek out meager existences in places where even the law fears to go. It is a haven for monsters, of the mundane criminal variety and the exotic bloodsucking variety. Dirty, neglected, crumbling, many areas are practically uninhabitable thanks to faulty vents, loss of power, or simply unstable. Below this level is Tartarus, and that is where even angels fear to tread.

Dirty Martin's Burgers and Beer

Postby Tsureai on Fri Sep 26, 2008 4:59 pm

Located on the outer edge of the under city, when the sun sets just right some seasons the door of Dirty Martin's gets a little sun light. Even in good light the place looks like a crap hole. When it was first built Dirty's was outdoors, and it still has the bird shit on the roof to prove it. But the upper city has over grown it, and it's hard to imagine the place as anything other than the dark and dingy dive it has become.

Dirty's is two stories, with the kitchen and dining tables on the first floor. It's set up like a diner, with a long counter of seats along the back and booths lining the exterior walls. Martin himself usually can be found at a decades old grill, or dumping things into the deep fryer. There are scattered tables free floating around, with an open spot off to the far side. When Martin can beg, borrow, or steal a musician he likes to have open mic nights. Sometimes he even makes his bar staff sing and dance.

Up the stairs gets you to the drinking and smoking area, where instead of a lunch counter there is a bar with hard liquor and a few kinds of beer. Around the floor there are a number of soft lounger seats grouped around little tables. Most of the free space up here is dedicated to the pool table, dart lanes, and a pinball machine off in the corner. The bar girls wear as little as Dirty can talk them into, and that penchant earned Martin his nick name. The unofficial uniform is a plaid skirt and snug tank top, although the shirts with his logo on them are the only thing he insists on.

Dirty's is the grand old neighborhood hang out, a place where regulars grab a bite and a pitcher and unwind after a hard day. From the outside the place is scarcely noticeable, and that's the way most patrons like it.

Amy sighs deeply as the lunch rush ends, rubbing her shoulders as she sets the bus tub down behind the bar. "People need to drink more for lunch." she mutters. "These dishes are damn heavy." The two barmaids working the counter with her both laugh, tossing peanuts at her. "This from Miss Muscles!" Erin teases, reaching over to grab Amy by the bicep. Amy knows this game well, and smiles widely as she lets Erin wrap both arms around her arm at the elbow.

With a gentle shrug of her shoulder she lifts Erin clear off the ground, the barmaid kicking her feet in the air and squealing as Amy curls the other waitress. Amy is an odd looking girl, her top half at real odds with her lower. She's wearing a pair of cargo shorts that display her long, slender legs and narrow hips. The tank top molds to her torso and shoulders, only emphasizing how thick and powerful she is. From the waist up Amy looks like a body builder, muscles on muscles especially in her shoulders and chest. She doesn't seem to notice as her other assistant grabs her free arm and gets hoisted into the air as well.

The horsing around does not last long, since there's a ton of work to be done to prepare the place for dinner and the drunks that come with the rush. In those few quiet hours between lunch and dinner the bar girls go about their lives, serving the few and scattered customers while cleaning up the joint as clean as it ever gets.

(((OOC: a place for drunkards? Well it sounds like just the place for Matthew.)))

Dirty Martin’s, a filthy place, but one of the few places in the undercity where you could get a decent drink that didn’t contain rat poison. He walked into the diner, he looked around and saw that the place was almost empty, perfect. He sat down at a free table, looked at Amy and yelled: “Waiter.”

(( Heheh. It's a dive, but it's MY dive! ))

As a point of fact, there are not waiters at Dirty's. There's waitresses however, about a half dozen in total between the two floors. A girl in black army boots, white stockings, a plaid mini skirt and white baby doll T shirt comes up to his table, pulling an order pad from a half sized apron that's longer than her skirt. "No waiters here Buddy." she says with a smile. "I'm Jessi. I also answer to 'Fashion Princess', 'Your Highness', and 'Benevolent and Merciful Beer Goddess."

Amy behind the counter looks up briefly as her other assistant does her job, leaving Amy free to change out a couple of empty kegs behind the bar. The customers can see her walk out with an empty keg in each hand, and a few minutes later walk back with two presumably full kegs being carried on her shoulders. Just another day as she sets up the taps.

He mentally sighed, why do I always get this kind of waiter, upps I mean waitress he thought to himself. ”Waiter, Waitress, other than the sex what’s the difference? Can I have a burger, and what do you have that’s Russian, tastes like crap and has more than forty percent?”

Jessie makes a pinched little face at him for a second, letting his comment go for the moment and taking his order instead. "Right. One burger and one shot of Komrade's finest. Anything else?"

Behind the Bar Amy and Erin can both her the man being rude, and drift together to chat amongst themselves. "I bet you dinner tonight he's a lousy tipper too." Erin starts off, while Amy digs in the well for the oldest Vodka she can find.

”Nah that’s all for me thank you.” He pulled out an old and crumbled photograph from his pocket he stared into the smiling faces of his wife and daughter, and a tear crawled down his face. He pulled out a notebook, he began scrawling some notes and tried to figure out the murderer’s next move. “I will find him” He muttered to himself.

((Got room for another character? :) ))

Joe yawned, walking up the stairs to the bar. His last few days before getting installed semi-permanently as a Martial Associates Security Officer, and he wanted to make them count. He wanted a party, or maybe several parties all strung together into one long booze-besotted celebration. He wanted a good amount of booze (though his regeneration seemed to purge the alcohol from his system more quickly than he would like) and a goodly amount of people around to join in the party, then to get on his motorcycle and ride off into the proverbial sunset. He smiled to himself, satisfied that he had beat the dinner rush, and pulled off his sunglasses in the relatively dim lighting of the bar. At least in the Undercity they were mostly an affectation, as by-and-large there wasn't enough light to hurt the Shifter's sensitive eyes.

Spotting Amy at the bar, Joe's smile widened to show off some of his perfectly white teeth. He headed over in her direction, dodging other patrons, the dart lanes, and the pool table, and seated himself at the bar with a polite nod to the avian Shifter. "Hey, Amy. Busy day today?"
Until shade is gone, until water is dust, into the shadow with teeth bared, screaming defiance with the last breath to spit in Sightblinder's eye on the last day.

There's three girls at the upstairs bar, two cocktail girls basically and Amy behind the bar. Amy is pouring a few fingers of cheap vodka into a frozen shot glass when Joe walks up. She almost doesn't recognize him until he takes his sunglasses off. There's a face she can place, if not exactly his name. All the same she raises her hand and waves, "Hello. It's pretty dead now." she says, sending Jessi off with the shot. "You're... Ummmm..." she mutters, snapping her fingers as she tries to remember. "Erik's friend? You're signing up with him right?"

Jessi meanwhile walks over to the surly man, dropping off his rotgut with a smile. "Anything else you need? And is that gonna be cred or do you want to start a tab?" She tries to be as peppy and smiles constantly, rocking up and down in her boots.

”Cash” Matthew says and pulls out a few bills. ”Keep the change.” The change being about five bucks. After he had paid for the food he began wolfing down the burger and once every four or so bites he took a shot vodka. When he was done he continued to stare at the picture and examine his notes.
