Come on in to the dark, seedy underbelly of life, a hothouse of dissidents, revolutionaries, shady characters, misfits and life's losers.
Pulling up a chair might not be the best of ideas, can't really tell in the light.

Ahaa, finally the Tavern shows its dark side, think I could fit in here.

Pass a slop tray someone, I've got my own syphon tube for the beer, but I want to have some means of keeping my nuts (edible) from getting mixed with my nuts (personal) if you see what I mean. Hickory smoked almonds, mmm.

Is that jello I feel dripping through the ceiling? Could add a certain something to the flavours down here, but I think I need another slop tray for a lid.

The lot upstairs are giving it some welly, but they are going to have a serious panic if that tea urn starts the jello pit above boiling, better turn it off and stick to appropriately low forms of refreshemnt. Aaah, Riggwelter, that will do nicely, I'll just tape the syphon to my cheek, then I can use both hands to feel around..... how many doors are there?

Don't tell me one of these doors leads to a valley full of sheep? Better baa it quick or the place will be full of druids singing about saucepans, they are attracted to low dives, I think it's the darkness that does it.

That dripping tastes fishy to me, think we could make some sort of soup out of it if we drag the tea urn to one side a bit? I think that barrel of Riggwelter must be faulty, or someone has got to it before me, either way my syphon isn't flowing any more, I'll have a rummage and see what else this place holds.

.. Hmm, sacks, tacks, portwine tub (phew dunno what THAT's had in it, better put it in the soup or we'll never sell it to the discerning gourmet crowd upstairs)... what's that knocking sound at the door?

Well,it was firemen at the door, but I didn't let them in (as instructed) til it's all mopped up, which could be quite a long time unless somebody actually starts mopping. Not offering, of course, it wouldn't be a proper dive if somebody kept cleaning it. They were asking about a cow, but didn't seem imterested when offered sheep, said it wasn't done, or something.

Do we do sedition down here? I just ask 'cause it sounds like it might be fitting, only I don't know how to start; this could be my first sedition. Does this mean it will attract collectors offering ridiculous prices in 50 years time?

Oh, and could whoever it was please shout "Mackintyre" again, but a bit louder, it seems to worry the be-sheeted sheep worriers, makes 'em think there's some competition.

Now then, where did I leave that syphon? If there's no more Riggwelter I'll make do with Bishop's Finger...and nuts, got to have nuts,soon.

It's gone awfully quiet upstairs, not a sound since that guy without a banjo went up. Hope they're alright and haven't burned the place down or anything daft like that.

I think there is more "sedation" going on then "sedition" - If you'll notice there is a large tank of tranquilizer with a rat-tail siphon leading into the beer taps!

And someone needs to do *some* mopping up at least - based on what seems to be oozing out from under the door of the ladies loo!

*MBSLynne sidles cautiously into the low dive. Hmmmm.....it's a bit hard to see what's going on in this dim light. Interesting smell..... She makes her way towards the bar, rapping her tankard across the knuckles of the claw-like hand that reaches towards her as she passes. "I'll have a rough scrumpy please barman.." her eyes have become a little more accustomed to the gloom. What IS that woman over there wearing? ER...if it IS a woman that is. And what are those three doing??? Looks like it could be an interesting place to pass a bit of time. she takes a swig of the liquid in the tankard..."Gasp splutter cough aaaagh cough...Now that's what I call ROUGH!" Think I'll just lean here against the bar and see who turns up.....

Well, first I lost silver and then I lost gold,
And then I lost consciousness so I was told;
And when I awoke things had gone amiss,
I'd always been told I would end up like this:
There was blood and a body and bottles galore,
Lying right next to me there on the floor;
I said, "Constable, please, I'm an innocent man!"
As he pried the revolver from out of me hand...

This place makes a fella watchful, and a little lonely.

The door is greasy even on the outside. Inside, the floor starts to be sticky right at the threshold, and the walls and ceiling are brown with nicotine. Peering through the gloom and cigarette smoke I can see the bar, decorated with the traditional gallon jars of pickled eggs and Vienna sausage (not together -- even here). The tables are even stickier than the floor, and each is covered with finger-marked glasses that used to hold the viper's piss they call draft beer in these parts. Twenty cents a glass, six for a dollar, traditionally ordered in pairs (hold up two fingers).

Everyone sits in this joint -- no leaning on the bar -- 'cause folks around here can't be trusted where they can reach the till or the beer taps. Some stare at the television set bolted to the wall, which shows the last decent game the Habs played, back when Lafleur was still flying. Others glower at each other across the table, drinking steadily and keeping up a low buzz of guy chat. A bunch of submariners getting stotius at the front table have almost reached the raucous singing stage. From the back I hear the click of billiard balls as yet another new guy in town gets fleeced by the house expert.

Ahhh, I'm back. It's been a while. I wonder if I can find a spot against the wall ... Yes, thank you; I'll have two draft.

Food, what happened to my nuts, I'm sure they were just here when I left 'em to try that there cog? Aah, here we are, two slop trays together, and inside, oops sorry to disturb you at such a moment, didn't know hamsters did that sort of thing even in private. It sure is powerful stuff that cog.

A moment or two to collect my thoughts, and other stray bits, then refreshment, wonder if they've got any Rhattarse left, if it's a bit past its best that'll be OK, I'm sure I won't notice once the syphon is working properly. Maybe I need to lie down, that should increase the flow.

Nope, it's no good, if I want to lie down I'll just have to get down on hands and knees first, can't slide down a wall that sticks to you like that. That's better.

ZZZ..zzz..zzz...Erk! That was just getting good and I've remembered the squid jello soup, with port and unidentified flavouring, well there it is; hot and faintly cheesy...I'm not sure the gourmets will go for this. Oh stuff it, seven hours on a very low light, top it off with toasted cheese and a foreign-sounding name, they'll think it's something special. In fact it is, I'm just not quite sure what it is, or whether it's safe.

Think I'll just doss down in this barrel here, that should keep off the worst of the drips.

The thing that has always impressed me about the ladies' loo in this place is the elegant way the management has rivetted heavy steel strapping around each toilet cistern to prevent patrons in the grip of debate from battering each other with the cistern lids.
