Things Every Lesbian Should Know: Open a Beer with a Lighter

If you’re anything like me, there’s usually only one thing on your mind at pride. Er, scratch that…there’s 2 things on your mind. The second is beer. In this single minded pursuit, I’ve bought a fine sixer of imported brew. Sorry folks, nothing that comes in a can will do for me. More often than now I’ve been far too focused on my second love and I was left without a means of opening my beverage.

Fortunately, I learned this past week how to open a beer with a lighter. Although Germans seem to have been born with this ability (perhaps they learn it after they learn to walk?), I’m shocked at how many of us lezers state-side still don’t possess this simple skill. Please enjoy this simple how-to vid of something every lesbian should know.

About Tina

A transplant from the snow and mountains of Upstate NY (why, yes, there IS an entire state above NYC!), Tina moved to Chicago in 2005. Since then, she’s taken full advantage of Chicago’s sports scene, participating in rugby, volleyball, and hockey – just to name a few. Her first love, however, is soccer. She's proud to have participated in both the 2006 and 2010 Gay Games as well as the 2009 Out Games. In addition to sports, Tina enjoys traveling (she tries to cross the atlantic at least once a year). Tina is a ‘Jackie of all trades’, so prepare for the unexpected!

  5. Turn your lighter sideways and it will work better… Also, grab the lighter with your left hand before you put your hand around the neck of the bottle. Try to squeeze the actual lighter to the bottle. Then rather than attempting to hold the lighter close to the bottle with your right hand while you push, you will be able to simply push down with your right hand… If done correctly it should work with almost anything rigid that you can find lying around.
