We cover the brand new story of Rob Ford being caught on video smoking CRACK. Ryan doesn't show up. Two guys called Adonis and Francesco come by and we get a good vocal performance. More straight guys than gay on this episode. Brough hangs up on some callers.
The first broadcast from Brough's new digs. Now that the show is getting off the ground, Brough felt it was necessary to take out a line of credit and put a down payment on a 500K condo, against JT's better judgement. This weeks episode features MTV reality star: Ryan Hilton, from the show Creeps. And of course live readings! Call in!

Tonight's special guest is Mike Tikkanen from Minnesota, founder of KARA (Kids at Risk Action), whose web site is at www.InvisibleChildren.org. He's also the author of the free book "Invisible Children; the American cycle of abuse and its cost." Mike's focus this year is speaking to CASA organizations & on college campuses. He explains, "The need for civic involvement of young future community leaders is the solution to America's At Risk Youth problem. Without today's college students understanding and support, schools will continue to fail, streets to be unsafe, and jails to fill." His talk addresses the social and political child protection problems and solutions that need action now. Mike speaks at local and national venues and has been the keynote speaker at business, community, and religious organizations. He lead a workshop at the United Nations in New York addressing the rights of children. Since 1996, he's volunteered in the Guardian ad-Litem program as a court-appointed special advocate (CASA) and has worked with over fifty “Invisible Children,” who are part of the County Child Protection System. Mike is passionate about improving the treatment of abused and neglected children and has formed the non-profit, Kid's At Risk Action (KARA) to bring public awareness to children's rights and form action groups to improve public policy towards at-risk children.

Let's Do Lunch! visits La Bella Vita at The Samoset Resort in Rockport, Maine. There's more to Maine than succulent and sweet lobster, which host Robin Milling discovered courtesy of the delicious tasting prepared by Executive Chef Tim Pierce.
Cooking is not Tim's only talent. He tells Robin about his award winning ice-carving sculptures such as a life-size mammoth, and gingerbread holiday creations. Tim grew up in Boothbay Harbor and says he was hooked by the kitchen with his first job as a dishwasher, joking that he's still doing dishes! He began cooking as a teenager out of necessity due to his working parents with skills so impressive he was making baguettes by nine and preparing dinner parties for the family. At the early age of 20 he became an executive chef.
Lobster is a must on the menu but there's always an Italian twist starting with Antipasto Della Casa featuring Italian meats and cheeses garnished with house-made mustardo, fig jam, and juicy raisins still on the vine. The Swedish inspired crispy hand-crafted gnocchi adds a pleasing crunch with wild mushrooms, Italian bacon, and spinach topped with creamy Pecorino sauce. Tim, who has been lobster chef of the year prepared an Italian style surf and turf featuring the sweet knuckle of the butter poached lobster and petite filet mignon topped with Tuscan potato puree.
The summer months are perfect for al fresco dining at La Bella Vita, either by night with romantic views of Penobscot Bay or for lunching lazily watching the lobster schooners go by.
