Hello Readers, it is time for a Friday Fictioneers post. Sandra Crook’s “derelict Building” photo was selected as this week’s prompt. As I looked at the building, I thought “What if… what if there was a nice eatery inside this place?”
I was already thinking about using an image of some beer taps for the weekly photo challenge, which this week is “variation on a theme” – and so here is what unfolded:

Here is my fiction:
Best Beer and Sandwiches in Town (fiction word count: 100)
You cannot tell from this view, but behind these walls you can enjoy craft beer and an array of meals. The basement down below has barrels of beers, fresh food, and smooth service.
There is a wait to get in on Friday and Saturday nights – sometimes also for Sunday brunch. But if you are in the mood for lunch, well come on by and be ready to chow because behind these walls you will find amazingness all around.
And shhhh…. keep it on the down low because we don’t want tourists here – this place is just for locals.
Here are the variation photos (the taps inside the building – ha):

I had no idea this photo was “a graphic example of Trompe L’Oeil” (more here)
and also – yes – this is for the locals – but bloggers with an active “gravatar” will also be allowed in with the first pint on the house.
Further, I thought about playing with the word Spanish word loco (adj.) “insane, crazy” to play off the locals word
maybe you’d be loco not to eat here…
And not sure if you all noticed the elevation play
the eatery is down below and we want to keep this place on the “down low”
