Spectrum Bar and Grill

I suppose it's not surprising that I grew up on the beach. My best memories are of building sand castles faster than my brother could stomp them down. He would always pretend he was Merana or Fish Breath Jacques or even the dreaded Sandragon. Sometimes I could outwit him by convincing him some seashell or bit of coral was blessed with the power of Shinwa or touched by Temptest's paw. The scare wore off when he figured out I was fibbing but my stories bought me a few hours of peace.

I realized at a very young age that I could never be satisfied as a beach comber or yet another shell picker for the Beach Shack. Four years at Centropolis University will do that to you. I needed to bring the excitement of the city to Delphi in a way that would preserve the cultural heritage of my seventh-generation beach-loving family.

Spectrum Bar & Grill is that dream realized. My establishment has been growing for seven years now, a place that combines refinement with relaxation. While we do have a strict no swimsuit policy, we are by no means as stuffy as some of those chain restaurants that swear to be endorsed by Saggitarius. We want every member of the family to be able to relax and enjoy our nightly fire eating and tiki torch juggling contests. We have the Hydrus Chorus with us for the season, to serenade guests as they sample platters of the latest menu items. We boast the best tropical drinks collection you'll find anywhere on the face of Subeta. The Libertine Lounge think tank calls me up every year shortly before the annual ball. If your fancy dancing drink contains pineapple, coconut, or mango, odds are it originated at Spectrum.

I get a lot of compliments on the championship surfboards that line the walls and the sheen of the teak tables convinces the most discerning diner that my establishment is a safe place for eating no matter what you crave. We serve meats and seafood in combination with local fruits. Our only imports come directly from Omen Islands, packed on ice. We'll try our hand at just about any dish, but we do not serve raw. There are fantastic restaurants in Shengui Guo if you're into that sort of thing.

My minion Zairie, a Nian, is a huge help in coming up with new ideas. Her culinary genius knows no limitations and she has an ear for modern music that I never could acquire. Call me old fashioned, but I prefer the classical tunes you'll hear on the speakers at Subeautique far more than the wailing rock ballads made popular by the Peka Glade Battle of the Bands. We compromise often on who will take the stage, encouraging young and old listeners to stop by and spend an evening looking out over the waves.

Out at the edge of the outdoor deck with its dance floor and umbrella-shaded tables, you'll find four curled strips of driftwood behind a gold-edged wooden plaque. The poem carved onto the surface tells the story of Spectrum's history and each of those driftwood slabs represents a section of the pier that has been built again with the aid of strong hands and magic, until all but the fiercest storms pass over this establishment without hurting us. The verse reads like this:

First the hurricane that ripped the planking from the walls.

Second came the wailing of the perlas in their halls.

Third the angry ocean that came boiling up the coast.

Fourth the pirate army that sought treasure more than most.

The hurricane that hit Spectrum's in our first year really did remove every plank from the walls, leaving only one wall standing. There was this plastic hula girl I'd gotten as a gag gift from one of my college friends. She was sitting in her exact spot on the one shelf not ripped from its hinges, her skirt flipping back and forth as if she was waving a farewell to the ominous clouds moving on down the coast. I still have that hula doll. I consider her one of my best good luck charms.

We were barely making enough to stay afloat back then and I really thought the place would have to close for good. I broke a full dozen kumos calculators crunching numbers well into the night. I finally had to hand my papers over to Zairie because I couldn't afford to buy another calculator! Somehow we managed to keep our small pool of loyal customers happy without earning the attention of the mortiking goons that work for First Subeta Bank.

Our pineapple cups had the misfortune of hitting the market at the same time as the coconut milks at Beach Shack. While we have a few loyal supporters that will swear we were first, we just could not compete with Linday's publicity. We turned our attention to offering a variety of shrimp, lobster and clam skewers which doubled our profits for half a year. Then the perlas lost their collective temper.

Perlas are typically a very docile minion, as long as you do not disturb their oyster beds. A perla delights in nothing as much as admiring her reflection on the surface of a pearl. They can sit and stare at their own faces for hours. They tolerate a certain volume of oyster harvest for food and magical purposes but every now and then, the big commercial fisheries get too greedy.

The perla wail very nearly took out a section of cliffs on one of Delphi's most popular beaches. It flattened Spectrum's to the ground...leaving that single wall standing once again.

I don't exactly come from a family that frequents All that Glitters, but I did inherit this really nice pocket watch that was said to be worn by one of the founders of the Masquerade Ball. That watch was my collateral for the second rebuilding and I thought I was so clever to put up wind (and wail) resistant paneling.

I never gave a thought to waterproofing.

The ocean pounded the beach with such ferocity that even Delphi's tutanis were forced to abandon their daily swims. I hid in my small and rickety shack, the only place I could afford after my latest round of bills. Zairie huddled beneath me, hissing and her tail lashing against my side.

The ocean didn't even leave me one wall standing. I had to start from the ground up, selling everything I owned except my minion and my lucky hula girl who hadn't lost a blade of grass through it all.

The pirates came about two weeks later. By that time, I was almost glad to see my half-built bar burning. I was cursed. I had to be cursed. Perhaps I'd somehow insulted Merana that time I stepped on a Sheweed. It hardly mattered what I'd done. I was never going to achieve my dream.

Then one day a cybill in a fine silk suit showed up, handing me a thick envelope. It was the Pirate Looting Relief Fund, set up by Sebastian Phoenix to aid those affected by the recent pirate attacks.

To be honest, that envelope held more money than I'd earned in four years of working the grill.

Spectrum's is well established now. We've even been featured in the Delphi issue of Tour Subeta. We are steeped in history and our shrimp scampi will make your taste buds sing so come on down to Spectrum's Bar and Grill and get your taste of summer today!
