So this is another idea I had, but its less thought out.
The story takes place in the mid 1920s during prohibition era, at one speak easy in San Fransisco called "Rascals"
The story would involve the owner, its employees, contacts (Such as the people in charge of acquiring booze, gangsters who provide protection, crooked cops, etc) and possibly patrons and their day to day romances, interactions, and exploits.
Has a lot of opportunities for some good story elements. Scandals, Organized crime, prostitution, raucous drunken parties, murder, blackmail etc.
Interests? Questions? ideas?
