Sighing at the cliche, but realizing you probably won't find another sign of life anytime soon, you pull into the dirt patch they're passing off as a parking lot. As you get out of your car, you realize the place is a bar.
You push the door open and a small bell tinkles. A man is playing a haunting tune on the piano, lit by a single bulb swaying slowly from the ceiling. A few road-weary patrons listen, sip their drinks, and make an occasional comment to their neighbor.
When the song ends, a woman, wearing a dress that may have once been alluring but is now somewhat shabby and drab, begins reciting an eerie sort of monologue.
"Care to pull up a seat, friend?" a guest near the spot you are standing asks, pulling a chair out for you. "It's the yearly variety show, it's something to see," he says, gesturing to the empty spot and pushing a pitcher of questionable looking liquid your way.
You know that watching a variety show in a seedy bar like this won't get you home any faster. But the place has got a disturbing allure that reminds you of the Hotel California. You accept the seat, pour yourself a glass, and settle in for the night...
