One and all,
And did you really think the likes of Mohicanlanders would be welcome in an establishment that caters to the King's men and their fancy ladies? If it wasn't yer preference for frontier attire rather than well tailored uniforms (or was Duncan wearin' spandex breeches), when they raised a mug to the King's health and you were standing there with your hands at your sides, they were bound to notice that at least.
And isn't it the perfect day to announce the grand re-opening of your humble local watering hole? The floor has been retamped, the stools and tables reinforced, and the storeroom in back cleared out for, ahem, private parties.
After thoughtful reconsideration (not to mention bein' thrown in the gaol on dubious charges, as well as bein' pitched in the creek by me own barmaids one of whom is the reigning arm wrestling champeen) I have been persuaded to rescind the dress code which was roundly denounced by one and all. I might add that Bumppo's hasn't seen a lady drop by yet, and to liven things up we're offering a prize for the best paint job, wimmin not excluded.
We've concocted a fresh barrel of punch from a shipment of limes 'n rum just in from the West Indies. After we drink a round to St. Paddy's Day, and another to salute Mohican Mama Marcia's nativity, she'll stand up on the table and treat us to a rendition of that song that her distant cousin Marlena will make famous some 200 years in the future, "See what the boys in the back room will have and tell them I'll have some of the same!"
Here's to yer health,
