Jack’s Place is a seafood restaurant at the pier in Simdale Valley. It’s named after Captain Jack, the notorious pirate who is rumored to have wintered and hid out in Port Prominence bay, thanks to its steep cliff walls. The fish is good, and the staff wear pirate gear, which seems to please the locals even more than the tourists. Locals tend to be pretty proud of their infamous Captain Jack.
Jack’s Place has especially good ambiance at night, when you can look out over the dark bay and picture a pirate ship skirting along its shores.
Jack’s Place is owned and operated by Zane Roberts
, who presumably inherited it, since he is only 27 and doesn’t have notable skill or formal training to own such a business.
So late one afternoon, Daniel Ono came home to find his daughter, Yuki, playing with a ball in the back yard. “When are you going to get me a net, dad?”
He played with her a minute, and then said, “Mom and I are going on a date tonight. We’ve been here the whole summer, we need to check out Jack’s Place. Your brother’s going to stay with you, be sure to mind him, ok?”
Daniel and Sayuri arrived at Jack’s at nightfall. While Zane was taking them to their table, Daniel stopped at the fish tank. He couldn’t resist!
Their waitstaff came to the table, and Sayuri couldn’t help laughing. Having grown up in Port Prominence, she couldn’t believe the outfit even though she’d heard about it.
They ordered and waited for their food to come. Everything was delicious and they had a good evening.
I usually want my sims to be seated in a booth, and they usually aren’t; this time I hoped they’d be on the patio, but they weren’t.
When they got home, this is what they found (Yuki stayed up watching werewolf movies.)
I’m surprised the food was good: Faith Goodie was the cook, but I know she doesn’t have a lot of cooking skill because I checked when Zane hired her to clean, not cook. The game automatically put her as the cook. Does anyone know how to make sure Sandy is the cook when I’m not playing the business? Zane is set with the Business Runs You to be the Podium Guy.
And finally, I just went back in the game to get a layout picture but then I realized, I can’t enter the business without going first to Zane’s house, and I can’t do that, because Sandy is in labor (but its not time yet for the birth so I’m making myself wait.) So no layout picture for this update now.
