surely not the better place for play, but great idea!

We've had success with bars with backyards, as long as we go early enough that we get it to ourselves (or bars with a second level, same thing).

Some weeks ago I accidentally started a one-o-one adventure (the first Thief's Challenge) in a cocktail bar with a friend. I admit I was quite embarassed but listening to the other tables' conversations I realized the costumers were all nerds talking Pokemon, World of Warcraft and the like!
Such a cool place haunted by nerds...

I've played D&D (and, to a lesser extent, Star Wars) at a public library, the front steps of my high school, an Omelet Shoppe, and once, briefly, a strip club. Never at a Mexican restaurant, though. Well played.

I discovered horchata for the first time a year or so ago. I love it.

Wait, wait, wait... What set of circumstances led to you playing D&D in a strip club??? o_O

Never had a good experience playing RPGs in UK pubs. Too much noise!

Brian Vencill said...

That's where we wanted to play. But it got really expensive, really quickly; hence, briefly.

I was surprised that you'd know horchata across the Pond. Just checked on wikipedia -- US horchata is different from the Valencian version.

As a role-player I don't really see a strip club as a good venue to do a RP session... By its very nature it's a place that will constantly distract players AND your group will be interrupted by the strippers who come sit at your table looking to hook someone for a lap dance. (As well they should, it's their job!) And let's not forget the lighting was probably not the best to be reading books and character sheets. Dunno, even before bringing money into the matter (which if you stick to the game itself and sip your beers shouldn't be that bad), I see it as one of those "One or the other." type of situations. I tend to like environments where players will be able to concentrate on the game. (For example, never if some of the players will be half-watching a sports game on t.v, things like that.) To each their own of course.

The last session of my Traveller game was held at a Americana- style restaurant [think Chilis with more alcohol]. Worked out OK for us except the lighting could have been better. Did make it easy to get food, though.
