Thirsty for a Fresh Take on All Things True Blood?

WELCOME! Thirsty for a fresh take on all things True Blood? Pull up a virtual barstool at the Pierced Pomegranate Tavern where sisters Rachel and Rebecca are serving up juicy feminist analysis with a twist and opening a vein of thoughtful sociocultural dialogue on HBO's hit series.

Like the epic literary salons of eras past - theaters for conversation and debate which were, incidentally, started and run by women; where the spirited debate about the issues of the day ran as copiously as the actual spirits did - but updated for the digital age, the Pierced Pomegranate Tavern is a fun forum for exploring questions ripe for discourse about the human condition & today's most crucial social issues through the medium of True Blood.

Your salonnières are not peddling liquor per se, but they are offering up new and alternative ideas informed by such diverse influences as pop culture, art, music, cultural history, Goddess studies, transformative theory, literature and poetry, and archaeomythology, filtered through the sieve of their own lived experiences as feminist women of a particular age, background, and culture.

This is a space where you - patrons and passersby alike - can view and engage with these perspectives through the lens of True Blood and contribute your own thoughts. So, no matter if you're a Truebie or a more casual viewer of True Blood, or your drink of choice is a pomegranate martini - one of Rachel's favorite cocktails to drink and Rebecca's to mix - an herbal tea, a frothy double mocha latte, or a can of Fresca (wink, wink) you're invited to join the conversation on the show's complexities in a way that can spark transformation.

Hopefully you'll find something to sink your teeth...err...straw, into! PLEASE ENJOY RESPONSIBLY ;-)


The Pierced Pomegranate Tavern is dedicated to exploring social issues and more through the lens of True Blood. As such, you may encounter:

Happy New Year! Don't Forget to Watch the People's Choice Awards Tonight!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to patrons and passersby of the Pierced Pomegranate Tavern!

It's already the fifth day of 2011 - unbelievable! Time flies when you're having fun...and super busy. So, do you think we should be laying off the New Year's champagne by now? Nah...

Your salonnières have some great and exciting things in the works for the PPT for 2011. We'd like to take some direction from you too as to what you'd like to hear us talk about in terms of True Blood and social issues, and what types of discussions would appeal most to you in that regard - so please chime in!

I'll be checking back in later to put the Real Grrrl Power series to bed by summing up why female relationships matter...of course, that will be after viewing the People's Choice Awards for which True Blood is nominated. Don't forget to tune in (CBS 9PM EST) and like I always say, you still have time to have your voice heard, so vote early and vote often!

Back later...

~ Rachel
