The Lucky Lady
Local dive bar in The Factory
The Lucky Lady is a typical spacer dive bar that serves military types with a one exception, the craps and poker table located in the back of the property. It has 100 seats including a long bar along one side, there is a small stage near the front entrance where visiting thepsians and select members of the Iron Dingoes perform. Trooper Valerie Irons “Barb Wire” is the Manager/Head Bartender of the Lucky Lady and only answers to LtSG Massimo De Luca “Advocate”, the owner. Captain Erika Hartmann “Glamour” is a silent partner in this venture, owning 30% of the profits. Several other young civilians serve food and drinks and maintain the kitchens. Security is maintained by a constant stream of Dingoes personnel who frequent the facility.
As an improved small business, it earns profits of roughly 3200 Cs per month, or 40,000 Cs per year. Perhaps more importantly, it provides the Dingoes with a central place to gamble, an aspect of Dingoes military life that is seemingly very important during off-duty time.
The idea of opening The Lucky Lady came to LtSG Massimo De Luca “Advocate” when * “The Iron Dingoes” spent six months on System – Dunkelheim. He could not find a decent place where he could drink and gamble. During his transit to System – Dumassas he stopped at Joshua’s Station and picked up some custom equipment including a poker table and a craps table. As soon as the Iron Dingoes took possession of the base in Garrison in The District of Garcia, Advocate noticed three potential buildings for the use of his new business and picked his favorite location. AS soon as he found out there is no ‘legal’ procedures in opening and running a business, he quickly started on the construction of The Lucky Lady. It provided a bit of income. but more of a spot to relax away from the Dropships and base. LtSG Massimo De Luca “Advocate” sold the bar and taken his profits for a new venture that has coalesced aboard The Factory, but has since re-acquired his old business.
This new venture is a “dive bar” aboard “The Factory”, with equipment and machines acquired from System – Dumassas, the facility has been equipped, with gambling machines and tables available, though poker rules its activities. As the first official recreation business aboard The Factory, it has acquired a favorable status among both station crew and military personnel. It is managed by Trooper Valerie Irons “Barb Wire”. It’s motto remains “Liquor in the front, Poker in the rear…”.
