Sprawl: Rix NeoCafe Americaine
Rix NeoCafe Americaine is a blast from the past mixed
up with some new tek. Rix DiAngelo worked in the
sim biz for twenty years, and was a huge success.
But Rix never really liked the sims, he much
preffered the classic golden age movies of Hollywood
like "Casablanca". So when Rix retired he brought his
dream to life. After creating and exact duplicate of
Rick's Cafe Americaine of the movie Casablanca he
added a few trideo screens, some really cool
holoprojection gear, and a few characters not seen in
the original movie (although according to Rix they should
have been) like a bruiser bouncer and some gorgeous
Now when one enters Rix NeoCafe Americaine one sees a
fashionable restaurant bar (and for the select and creditworthy)
the casino, done in the neoclassic 20 deco style. And old movies
playing on the trideo screen, as well as holoprojected into the
restaurant proper. Suits and tie are mandatory. Music is jazz,
swing, and big band. Its a ritzy place.
