Lunch at the Iconic Bar
"I know you're really gonna love this place, Perry," said John as he held the door open for me.
"I like it already!" I replied. "Hip clientele, cool atmosphere, and great painting over the bar! How'd you find it?"
"Just kind of stumbled into it. See, they got beers from all over the world too."
"Why, this place is nothing less than iconic! Good burgers?"
"The best! Oh, here comes that blonde waitress, met her last week. Hi, Janine!"
"What are you doing here again, low-life? And who's the overage bald-headed loser you brought with you today?"
"Of course," John whispered in my ear, "one thing they do need to work on is service with a smile."
Despite the service sans smile, the iconic bar has proven to be a very cool place for this week's Fabulous Friday Fictioneers to hang out. There's not just beers, but writers from 'round the world on tap, and you can order up some by clicking here.
My story based on the picture prompt above was ordered for just 100 words, but came in overcooked at 117. Hope it's still well done and, more or less, to your liking.
But even if not, I dare ya to ask Janine to take it back!
