Suspicious or at least mildly interesting conversations do seem to pop up here and there. Two particularly tough-looking waitresses are arguing over which of them has to deal with "that crazy dragon girl" if she shows up again tonight. One or two seem to be plotting ways to get someone called Velcy to give them a really good tip. A girl in a witch-type outfit is talking to another couple about her time in a blue dragon cult with an air of nostalgia.

Hmm... *Yoko quietly works her way over to where the two discussing the dragon girl are so she can listen in closer. If they're expecting trouble tonight besides the thief, she figures she might want to know about it.*

"...She summoned a rock golem last time! You're the one with anti-rock bracelets in your inventory."
"You managed it just fine. Anyway, I heard she has a half-orange girlfriend too. If that one shows up the two of us won't even be enough, we'll have to get backup. Maybe even call the manager."
"We can't call the manager for one rowdy customer! Anyway, she always tips in solid gold, we don't want her to get totally banned."
"Fingers crossed the knife-happy catgirl is a myth, then..."

*Well, that certainly sounds dangerous... Yoko files this all away for future reference before moving on. She figures people might start wondering what's up if she takes too long with that one area. Unless any other particularly juicy gossip turns up, she'll probably just continue on in this fashion until the work's all done.*

Before too long, everything's set up and the bouncers head out, the club getting to the point of properly opening. After a bit, the band moves to the stage and refreshes their warm-up real quick while the first of the customers filter inside. The ones who were talking about Velcy earlier flock toward a Mightyena-girl as she walks in, giving her a bit of special attention and guiding her over to one of the better seats for viewing the band.

*Yoko makes note of the Mightyena and the attention she gets as she comes in.* So, I guess that's Velcy... *Information noted! Now that customers are coming in, Yoko joins in on the work of greeting customers and getting them seated. All the while, she's keeping her ears open for her cue...*

Things start to get properly underway after a bit. There's a decent crowd of customers and the band steps up onstage, starting their performance. About halfway into the second song Yoko might notice one of the tougher-looking waitresses who were talking earlier look over at the entrance and give a bit of an annoyed sigh as a particular dragon-girl walks in, although for the moment she just seems like a slightly hyper, friendly girl, and really doesn't give off the air of a troublemaker (or a particularly good fighter, either).
At any rate, there are jobs to be done! She could probably help take orders, or mix drinks if she has experience in that (and can be careful enough to not get the club's color fruit stock splashed on her), or just general table-busing work. For now, none of the patrons are being all that rowdy.

*Yoko looks around for a moment, then approaches a table that doesn't seem to have any food or drink and puts on her best waitress voice.* Hello there! Is there anything I can do for you today?

This table's guests are a pair of average blue girls. The one in glasses says, "Yeah, I wan' a..whatzit called.." She squints at the menu for several seconds trying to find it.
"Cocorita!" the other one says. "Sheesh, how do you forget that every time, Bratty? One for me too, please!" Seems like the drink in question is essentially a very fruity margarita, but the fruit is cocomelon.

All right then, I've got you down for two cocoritas. Is that gonna be all? *Yoko looks from one girl to the other as she waits for an answer.*

"Yeah, that sh'be enough for now," the glasses girl nods
"Can't kick us out if we're paying for a drink, right?" the catgirl adds with a wink--though at exactly who it isn't clear.

Heh, just try not to cause any trouble while I'm getting your drinks and we'll be all good. Be back in a jiff! *Yoko winks at the catgirl in an attempt to play along, then goes off to the bar to grab those drinks.*

On the way to the bar, Velcy's voice can briefly be heard over the music and crowd: "WOO, LUPA! ROCK THOSE DRUMS!" It seems pretty clear who her favorite Muse is, at any rate.

There are several cocoritas already lined up on one end of the bar, with a little sign marking that that's what they are. They're big wide margarita-glasses with salted rims all nearly overfilled. There are also some trays around some of the other waitresses are using, but given the ingredients only someone pretty good at balancing and dancing around the rest of the crowd can avoid getting blued on the way to the customer. There are plenty of clearly-blue waitress and bus-girls nearby if Yoko doesn't feel confident enough to take that risk.

Shouldn't be too hard... *Yoko grabs a tray, loads it up with a pair of cocoritas, and starts carefully working her way back toward the table.*
