JD tries her hand at mixology again, while Denise has a Jaegermeister Cold Brew as they discuss JD's very good week. The ladies welcome comedian, singer, actor, producer Sandra Valls - a Latina power house of talent, riding lockdown out in Texas. They talk about Sandra's "Playroom Karaoke" that she started last year on Facebook Live as well as her upcoming gigs as restrictions begin to ease. Sandra's sister Connie pops in for a surprise.

Tyler, our Memphis mixologist from the ultra trendy bar "The Gray Canary" (as well as "Eight and Sand") visits with us again! JD is a little late getting in but Denise and Tyler have a quick catch up and some whiskey chat while Tyler explains his inspiration for this "Front Porch Pounder"- a drink you can love while sitting on your front porch on a warm weekend. It's really a modern, grown up riff on the classic college jungle juice. He's almost ready to share some eclectic, electric neon-colored summer drinks but NOT yet, it's still Spring so we're cruising slowly and savoring this pretty drink made with whiskey, cappaletti, lemon juice, cynar, vanilla extract, dash of sugar syrup! For the video of this show, click this link and see Tyler in action.

JD and Denise have a drink and ... a big ol' chat with actor, writer, producer, animal lover Jill Bennett, who tells us about life in L.A. lockdown and how she's been keeping busy (and sharp!) Also, big news on some very cool future projects and a little tea spilled on wife, Lauren Neal's latest project - writing, directing a Hyundai car commercial that debuted at the GLAAD Media Awards (available on YouTube to see). We had some intense convo on animals, too- from squirrels to cats to pitbulls. Well, come on. We're lesbians, of course we did. To view this show on our YouTube channel, click this link. 

JD and Denise have some cocktails (Coffee with Coffee Infused Vodka, and a classic Whiskey Sour) tonight while Denise introduces her friend of over 30 years, Debbie Savigliano, the founder of Bianca's Kids, a 501c3 Non-Profit Charity Organization out of New Jersey that grants wishes to families and children in need. Debbie shares the story behind starting the organization after losing her 21 year old niece, Bianca, who was struck and killed by a car as she walked to work at a daycare center early one August morning. Debbie shifted her grief into creating Bianca's Kids to honor her niece and the results have been incredible as the group has now granted over 30,000 wishes for kids all over the country and continues to do good with donations in all forms from time and goods to checks.

JD has a little Mount Gay Rum and coke while Denise indulges in a craft brew from Tiny Rebel Brewery called Stay Puft, a marshmallow porter. The ladies share some good news that Denise received and then they have an interesting chat with Marjorie Waldo, the CEO of Arts Garage, a fantastic venue in Delray Beach, Florida where all kinds of music, performers, and artists are welcomed. Marjorie discusses the Covid safety guidelines they've put in place, the acts they've had and the new Garage Kweens show they are putting on in April, how to buy tickets for shows or be a donor. We don't have any video this week, but we'll have more next week. 

JD dabbles in mixology with a SKYY Cold Brew Coffee Vodka in Coca-Cola while Denise indulges in Jim Beam Red Stag Black Cherry whiskey tonight as they cover the evolution of Valentine's Day from when they were little, then teenagers then adults. In a hilarious discussion of high school hijinks, we learn JD was a bit of a nerd, because of Clara (listen and learn) and Denise tells how you could spend a mere six bucks and buy a Valentine's date in high school with a carnation and a box of donuts.
