Jill, John, Jenn, and Julie are at the Blackbird bar on Kinnickinnic Avenue. It is dark and it is winter in Wisconsin. Each is drinking a dark microbrew from somewhere in Wisconsin. Dressed in dark clothing, skirts, jeans, and tattoos on skin, telling stories is where we begin and a DJ spins some records. Susie Q is at the bar serving beers to Scott and Mark. Derek, Jake, and Henry M, are close at hand talking to them.
