For reasons I couldn't possibly explain without several more years of education, this week's issue is not yet available online. In lieu of a photo from the new issue, I offer a picture of my cat Lilly.
But there's a hard copy of the new issue here at my desk, so you'll find it in the nearest RFT box soon enough. Go take a walk and see. Here's what awaits you.
I continue my "summer vacation" in Illinois at Erato in Edwardsville. Malcolm tries to keep down pickled pig lips (with a little help from a bag of Red Hot Riplets). And we welcome Kristie McClanahan to the Drink of the Week column, where she enjoys a rum and Coke at the Arena Bar and Grill.
