Who would be available to do a one-hour (or so) live realtime session over IRC or some chat service?
Timewise, you're doing OK. About 5 minutes to go.
Skipito scurries squirrelishly across the roof and leaps daringly onto the wires, crossing the street on the utility wires. He makes it across without being seen (9 + 2 = 11) but the wires feel a little looser when he gets to the other side, and he fears that he might have yanked something loose inside. Probably just phone lines, but who knows?
Below, Bozuko juggles his balls, starting off slow and easy and building from there. He does pretty good at first (7 + 4 = 11) and the crowd applauds and throws down some money. They seem enthralled for a minute or so, but they don't seem really inclined to toss anything else in there for him to juggle (7 -2 = 5) and they begin to drift away. Several of them start to head back inside the bar. Bozuko turns up the juice and throws in some Ninja acrobatics (+2 Ninja, +4 Juggling, -2 Standing Out, -2 Difficulty, so it's a net +2, or a total of 9), pulling most, but not all, of the crowd back his way. The way is still clear for Skipito. Mostly.
Toru, however, isn't faring so well (5 + 2 = 7). The nu-metal tune Wroe chooses for him turns out to be Death Metal, and the cookie monster vocals drown out much of what he has to say. His antics draw attention, but nobody can get the message.
"Ladies... broad...s... you... act... stupe... ick... giv... ash... punt..."
Several people seem offended. One of the women nudges her boyfriend, and he gives Toru a dirty look, puts his hands in his pockets, and starts to walk over.
Elsewhere, Kitaro scopes the area out to see if he can detect who's in need of a burger. His newly-honed Chef senses (9 + 2 = 11) allow him to pick up 6 the scent of burger all throughout the ground floor of Zeitgeist. He's pretty sure (90%) that the delivery target is above the first floor.
