A combination bookstore and library run by Soho's resident
Werewolf known as Wolfboy or Lobo. Wolfboy knows his books
and keeps them in excellent shape. You'll always find a fair
price and a good read at Elsewhere.

user posted imageMOCK AVENUE CHURCH
Arguably Soho's most famous landmark is the church's
gargoyle-guaded bell tower that always chimes the wrong hour.
(if it ever did, the gargoyle would be free and no one wants that).
The Church itself is also home to the Mock Avenue school of
painters the University Without Floors.

A free-to-attend, anyone can teach and anyone can learn
institution located within the Mock Avenue Church. While the
floorboards of church are a little rickety, they still exist, so we're
not really sure where the name came from. All classes and
teachers are strictly volunteer and no true degrees are earned.
Still, it's one of the best places to get a little education in Soho.

A free-to-attend art "school" located within the Mock Avenue
Church. Tuition is cheap, but students must pass a proficiency
test and provide their own supplies. Some of the best artists in
Bordertown come from the School of Painters.

Located in the remains of a clothing shop, this gallery is
the most coveted exhibition place in Soho, if not in all of
Bordertown. Anyone who's anyone or who wants to make it
as an artist in the city wants to be hung (or already has)
here. Unlike the Old City Art Museum, this is true art
without the stuffiness (or halfie prejudice). Formally known
as the José Gutierrez Gallery.

user posted imageMOCK TURTLE user posted image user posted image user posted image
Tucked away in an unmarked, unnamed alley behind Mock
Avenue, the Mock Turtle is a favorite worst-kept secret of
Soho locals. This "squatter's cafe" is the place to go to get
some comfort food like Momma made-- whoever and whatever
Momma was. Human, halfie, trueblood and other favorites
are all served here. The Mock Turtle is marked only by it's
bright blue doorway.

user posted imageHOME OF THE HORN DANCE user posted image user posted image
a cross betwen Morris Troupe, rock and roll band and a
biker gang, the Horn Dance ride the streets of Soho with
antlers and ribbons tied to their bikes and animal masks
over their faces. All but one are human, but the band itself
is open-armed and friendly to all. Sometimes they refer to
themselves as "Bordertown's Luck."

Fred and Barney's Bikes
By the Power of your Two Feet!

user posted image

A small business catering to those folks who can't afford a fancy spell-box powered motorcycle, but still want the manuverability of trolling around on two wheels. The two owners also run their own gigs outside of selling and repairing bicycle parts. Fred, tall, dark-haired and built like a New Jersey Construction Worker, runs a delivery and bicycle rickshaw taxi service with about a dozen dedicated bicycle punks, but he's always looking for more riders. Barney, short, blond and a football on legs, keeps up on most of the repairs, but also does 'custom-made' bikes for anyone with the silver or parts to pay for it. If you're into bikes that're pedaled six feet above where their wheels actually are.

user posted imageSOLOMON’S STEAKS user posted image user posted image user posted image
Old man Solomon runs a butcher store on Mock Avenue, also known as ‘Steaks’.
Due to his age, the stock is usually low and not very diverse (mostly beef), and
Solomon depends on the loyal regular customers he's gained through the years, but
he shares more than good pieces of meat. Solomon’s stories are famous around town.
He often speaks of his adventures in the NeverNever, but no one but the old man
himself knows how much of it is actually true. Some people are more interested in
the tales than the food, but both of them are of extraordinary quality.

Don’t be discouraged by their ‘We love to sell you dead things’-slogan. Solomon
just happens to have a peculiar sense of humor.
