When Romaine and Jeff meet some fun and crazy folks who run a late-nite coffee house, they never suspect that they're actually vampires. Rather than being devoured, Romaine's cunning captures the imagination of Elvis, the leader of the group - will they be the victims of the political schemes of the undead, or will Romaine become their Vampire Queen?
