Good news, conservatives! If the Republican National Convention gets a little too stressful, you can always unwind—gratis—in “Tampa Bay’s only gay owned and gay operated, private club, resort & bathhouse.” From now until August 31, the Ybor Resort and Spa, located in the heart of Tampa’s sultry Ybor City party district, is offering a super promotion: “ALL RNC DELEGATES GET IN FREE!” Tea party, anyone?

“All guys 18 & up” are welcome to sample Ybor’s recently opened steam room, not to mention the spa’s brand-spanking new dark room, dubbed “A Shot In The Dark.” Just bear in mind the house rules: It’s a private men’s health club; no drugs, pets, or prostitution; and always wear your towel!

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
