Salim Benali is the hottest new Arts Critic for San Myshuno Times! Author of “Hot Hangouts of San Myshuno“, Salim is the man to ask about which venues are worth visiting and which street performers are worth tipping.
Salim Benali decides to check out some venues outside of San Myshuno and opts for grabbing some drinks at the Old Quarter Inn in Windenburg. The Inn has a warm, traditional vibe and a great selection of beverages, but Salim enjoys the company of the inn’s local clientele the most.
A new Italian restaurant called Villa Bovine opens in Newcrest, so Salim takes the opportunity to use the venue for a dinner date. Gal Gebara delivers Salim’s mail every morning and he couldn’t resist asking her out.
