If you're headed to Shameless Grounds (2650 Sidney Street; 314-714-5476 or www.shamelessgrounds.com
), just text your order to 508-JOLT-2-GO, and an employee will hand-deliver some curbside coffee before you can say "caffeine addiction." But if you'd like to slip into something a bit more comfortable, just step inside the sex-positive space, where nothing's in the closets but coat hangers. Aside from serving up coffee, food and knowledge (via its human sexuality lending library), Shameless Grounds really shines when it's playing hostess to events like the Sex Positive St. Louis Out Loud
at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 10. Some of the city's most interesting and open minds will visit the Grounds to share fiction, poetry, prose and comedy, including Johnny Murdoc, (author of Blow Job 3
) and Elva Maxine Beach (author of Neurotica
). Admission for this night of spoken (read: smokin') word for the grown and sexy is absolutely free.
