    # | To the casual observer, the pub would look like a riot. Everypony of all classes, ages, genders, and creeds were seated at every possible seat. It was boisterous, loud, and the waiters were working overtime. But in the midst of this crowd, was a brown and white stallion, one with a fiddle, the other with a guitar. They stood above the crowd, on two tables that were pushed together. They played a duet tune, which grew steadily faster, the nearby ponies clapped or tapped hooves to the beat. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFBRaIOI85k

                    @writersblock "No..no I'll be fine, I just need to-" Somepony shouts in cheer for the band and Nathan leaps up 10 feet in the air and faceplants. "OK OK YES!" He starts trotting out a little quickly, hard to keep up with. He sits down on a bench outside, panting.

He turns back and almost runs into you when he rounds the door. "AH!" The scaredycolt jumps around the corner and ducks and covers.
