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:

Putting the SOCIAL back into this social, stimulating salon!

Remember back in Season 1 when Eric and Pam did a little promoting for Fangtasia at Merlotte's, handing out flyers, talking up their ladies night specials and whatnot?

We've got something along those same PR lines up our sleeves...

Between now and the Season 4 premiere weekend, we at the PPT intend to do all we can to put the social element back into what was conceived as a fun, interactive forum for exploring questions ripe for discourse about the human condition & today's most crucial social issues through the medium of True Blood.

What's more social than social media? Rhetorical question :-)

Admittedly, we've had our issues with it at first, but we're pretty sure we've got the hang of this Twitter thing now and we plan to be more present on that platform. Since the best place to begin is at the beginning, we plan to generate interest for the Pierced Pomegranate Tavern 2.0 by re-tweeting our earliest posts. We'll definately be tweeting more often in general both in the run-up to Season 4 and once the new season has begun. 

We're also planning on connecting the social media dots by launching a Facebook page for the Pierced Pomegranate Tavern; details to come. 

Finally, since when it comes to transformative discourse, the more the merrier! Therefore, we intend to build bridges with interested parties by linking related sites and blogs in our blogroll, and outreaching to members of the True Blood cast and creative team, other True Blood fan sites and bloggers, writers, periodicals with pop culture/TB commentary, and related conferences and conventions.

We've been working on developing media kits for some time, so who knows - perhaps a press release will be forthcoming!

Please stay tuned as we ramp up to our GRAND REOPENING AND THE LAUNCH OF THE PIERCED POMEGRANATE TAVERN 2.0 the week of the True Blood Season 4 premiere!
