Just playing around with this idea in my head, and wanted some insight from the community. The theme is very premature, so any insight would be appreciated.

When I was a little kid (not so long ago) my family took me to Universal Studios, which was a big deal for us growing up in a poor immigrant family with just my mom and her sister. While we were there, Florida was having a super bad storm/hurricane and everything was pretty much getting flooded. Everyone was getting soaked and so all the nearby people pretty much rushed into this nearby bar/restaurant place (No clue what the name was). Tons of people were in there soaked, yet everyone was so happy and having the time of their life in there talking to each other. The rain wasn't letting up, so strangers were together bonding in there for what seemed like forever, and I found that to be really cool. Eventually, we got tired of waiting and decided to leave anyways even if it meant having to basically "swim" through the street (for me at least since I was small lol).

This is honestly one of the best memories I have of my childhood, and I wanted to create a theme regarding a place like that, where people shelter up and strangers get to know each other and play poker or just hangout while the storm passes.

I'm having trouble thinking of a name that doesn't sound super cliche, like Hurricane Hideout lol. Also have no clue what kind of inlay ideas I would make for this, but just wanted to throw it out there and see what people may think of.

Thanks!

Vic

Love this story! I was thinking depending on where you take the theme, “Tropical Hideout” could be a Florida-esk theme
Thank you!! Yeah I was thinking Hurricane Hideout, but I'm trying to make it something kinda catchy/cool without sounding to basic/obvious haha.

Storm Haven?

In all seriousness, I like Hurricane Hideout!
Sorry didn't even see your response! Storm Haven sounds really good too! Marking that down.
First of all, that's a great story.




Hurricane Hideout is a fun name.

What about just "The Haven" ?
I think The Haven sounds cool if I can have an inlay that more so describes the theme idea... still pretty clueless as to what to do with that. I like Hurricane Hideout... or Hideaway... dunno. Thanks for the suggestion!!

What about just Stormy’s (Studio? Card Room? Etc.)?

Maybe make it a fun label and add a new cartoonish character named Stormy … with a cloud over their head or umbrella or something?

Trying to think outside the box. :)

I like this idea a lot too... seems very fun. Maybe something with a lightning bolt? I'll think of some ideas for this as well :) Thanks @aggie !!
