MCCAFFERTY'S - PUB
local pub is only a few doors down from Natalie Talamasca’s home. It’s been a
neighborhood and city fixture for years and for good reason. Atmosphere is
extremely casual and the owner Sean wouldn’t have it any other way.
Patrons can stop on in and have a
bite to eat on the menu or a drink from the
bar. Seating includes booths along the walls, tables in the center as well as
stools lining the bar. There is a pool table if you feel the need to play, a
couple of dart boards and a jukebox that plays nothing but music Sean can
tolerate (no rap or top 40 here, same goes with country...expect the Pogues,
Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly and sorts like that) There are a couple of televisions available behind the bar and
a big screen on one of the walls that is forever tuned to ESPN. Secretly one of
the televisions behind the bar is always tuned to Passions in the early
afternoon, though Sean will insist it is for the female lunch crowd.
The food ranges from burgers to wraps, to fire roasted pizzas and if
you’re lucky one of Sean’s famous soups which are the only things that Sean
cooks. He leaves the rest of the cuisine for Anthony, his cook.
Bud Light and Fosters are on tap with a wide range of world beer’s on bottle.
He also has quite a few Chimaera specialties, but they won’t be on any menu
(it's more of a you ask, he may give kind of deal). McCafferty’s is a full bar
so go ahead and try one of Sean’s concoctions.
Everyone is welcome in the bar, especially Talamasca, probably because of his
soft spot for Natalie who not only lives down the street, but who is also a
regular fixture. Sean lives in the apartment above the bar so he pops in and
out. Most of the time he’s behind the bar just in time for Passions and until
Bartenders and Cooks (May be NPCd as Needed)
Looks like: Hugh Laurie
History: Sean is a direct descendant of the Merlin. Yep, that Merlin. So he’s
actually a fairly good hedge wizard, but don’t expect to see any magic while you
are in the bar. He rarely uses it. Don’t ask why because he sure as hell will
not tell you. But the power and knowledge is there if he needs it and few have
ever tried to see if he is bluffing. The pub has been in the family for
generations and eventually it will go to Sean’s son Angus, don’t ever call me
that or die, who has always just been known as Mac. Currently Mac is finishing his
in Cultural Anthropology and living with the dragons of Northern India.
Sean is a friendly guy, with a biting wit and plenty of sarcasm. Some might
call him misanthropic at times, but its all a façade. He looks after his
patrons, though he would deny it if you ask him. There is absolutely no
fighting in his bar and if you start one he will collectively kick your ass.
Also he frowns on any business dealings. McCafferty’s is a place to relax, not
a place to plot for plotting leads to trouble.
Sean’s wife died 10 years ago to cancer and for the past few years Julie, one of
the waitresses and Natalie have been trying to set him up with someone new. So
far with no luck. Of course that doesn’t mean Sean’s not interested, they just
haven’t managed to find someone brave enough to deal with his temperament.
History: Anthony has been working for Sean since he was eighteen when Sean
pulled him in off the streets and gave him a job. First he was a
busboy/janitor, eventually he became the new cook. Anthony is wisecracking
and good-natured and him and Julie are the few people that can appreciate Sean's
sometimes biting humor. They know he's just a giant teddy bear inside.
Occupation: Head Waitress
History: She's been working for Sean for a little more than 5 years.
She loves the place...she makes great tips, loves the people she works with and
it is close to home. Julie is telekinetic, though do not expect to see
levitating glasses. She prefers doing things the old fashioned way.
