Other Title
Tenderloin after two in the morning
Summary
A man walks into a bar in the Tenderloin, where he is greeted enthusiastically by the patrons. The bartender brings a round of drinks for everyone. While one of the women distracts the newcomer, one of the men spikes his drink and he soon passes out. While he is unconscious, one of the women takes his watch. Another takes his wallet and slips it into her garter. The poor man wakes up, and feels for his wallet. When he can't find it, he becomes agitated and begins to struggle with the two male patrons. The bartender and a policeman enter, and the angry victim is arrested! The bartender and all the patrons are so pleased with themselves that three of the women stand up and do little dance. Later the man comes back with the policeman, who seems to have finally figured out who is the victim, and who are the criminals.
