The live audience submitted drink and book recommendations:
Robert Russell--Tequila Neat
Laura Walter-- Beer. All the Beer
Jason Harris-- Virgil's Root Beer--because it has multiple flavors and an aftertaste

Laura Walter--Train Shots by Vanessa Blakeslee
Brad Moldin--Anne Valente's forthcoming book (2014)
Katrin Tschirgi--You Only Get Letters From Jail by Jodi Angel
