When the regulars gather, it feels like a play is starting. Improv theatre, perhaps.

Roland orders a whiskey. Suntory. Julia's brand. Roland never orders whiskey. I asked if he was sure.

Tonight starts just like the night before. Some rain, a chill, the falling sun.

Another good night for rum.

Roland is first in. He hangs his jacket and orders his usual. Gin Tonic.

"You sure you don't mean whiskey?" I ask.

@jazzbartender1

"Shut up," he said. I shrugged.

"As long as you're paying," I said.

Julia orders a gin tonic. Roland's drink. She's never ordered gin tonic. I asked if she was sure.

"Kind of feeling in the mood for something different," she said. Winked.

Dressed like a business man, and yet somehow, clearly, not.

Like a monster wearing a bowtie.

"You seen Julia?" he said.

"Yep," I said."
