All Roses Have Thorns

I went through a lot of options of what the name of the cabaret should be, most of them focused on the vampires' secret (meeting) or something like that. But then I thought we were treading too heavily on Anne Rice ground, so I shifted the focus to be faeries, and named it The Faerie and the Moon. Sounds a little saucy and night lifey. I think she's painted, carved wood, and her wings are stained glass.

In one of my Paris reference books, I learned there were a proliferation of ridiculously themed cabarets and brothels back in this time period. The Moulin Rouge is the one that is the most famous, but there were a bunch more, so it really gave a lot of freedom to make up my own!
