Our June issue is the next chapter in the Void narrative. After a year in which we went digital for two months, then eased into bi-monthly print drops, we’re getting back to our monthly stride. It’s cause for celebration, no doubt. And we’re clinking our proverbial glasses together with an issue largely dedicated to throwing back a couple celebratory bevies.

Our popular Pour-Files features introduce you to the spirited characters opening their hearts, lending their ears, and dexterously muddling, pouring, mixing, shaking (pouring again), garnishing, etc. at some of the coolest watering holes around the region. We’ll gladly be your spirit guide, too, as we’ve compiled a list of new and interesting brews, spirits, and non-alcoholic drinks meant to whet your whistle. 

June’s Arts Feature | An interview with Mark Creegan. “At first glance, Creegan’s work can appear whimsical. Which isn’t a description he’d repel,” says Arts & Music columnist Daniel A. Brown. “But a second look reveals his exploration of the identity of material, name and form, temporality and impermanence, even the pliancy and permissiveness of visual art.”

And be sure to toast to the artists, musicians, and culture shifters featured herein. Folks like mixed-media artist and professor Mark Creegan, Lady Skate Day founder Murphy Williams, and Able Skate Mag creator Nate Cary, whose creative compulsions are really the reason, after 120-plus issues, we’re still some damn thirsty.

Void’s June Issue is on racks now at more than 200 locations in and around Northeast Florida.
