01. Seventeen Easy Steps to Prepare for a First Date
An advice column by Ryan Rogers
02. The Girl with the Motorcycle Tattoo
A story by Mary-Devon Dupuy
04. Four Saucy Poems
By Tom O’Brien
06. Queerness is Not Yet Here
A photo essay by Chris Berntsen
07. Perfecting the Rim Job
A cocktail recipe by Probably This
Our final cocktail recipe was recorded off audio, but Matt & Beau brought down the house with a coconut daiquiri and a zesty salt rim using their LIVE mixology knowledge that could put even Martha to shame. This segment included a very helpful tutorial on cleaning the rim and getting juuuust the perfect amount spice in your rim job. You can't see it, but… we'll just let you use your imaginations. Lucky for you, the full recipe is on their blog. Go make a cocktail while you listen!
