McKay's Books

McKay Books was founded in 1978 as a “free enterprise library:” a bookstore which would contain a wide variety of books which an individual could obtain cheaply, keep as long as they wanted, and return for credit on other books in the future. McKay stores are a valuable resource for scholars, casual readers, music lovers, video gamers, and movie buffs throughout the region.

Parnassus Books

Mt. Parnassus in Greek mythology is the home of literature, learning and music. Nashville's book store of the same name is providing a refuge for Nashvillians of all ages who share in the love of the written word. They partner with and support local writers and artists, businesses and institutions. They will strive to bring readers the best books in literature, non-fiction, children’s books, local interest and the arts in both printed and digital formats. Best of all, they provide venues for writers to connect with readers, and readers to connect with books. By doing this they hope to complement and add to the rich cultural character of the Athens of the South.

This fun and sexy calendar is full of actual Nashville rugby players baring (almost) all. The calendar is available online at for only $20 (which includes shipping).

WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
