Episode 3 (…err 2) of Stab in the Dark Premieres At Italo’s Balinese Eatery

We delivered the third episode late to Italo, but it’ll be on time for you.

We meant to premiere episode 3 of Stab in the Dark with Italo Ferreira last night at OYA Kitchen in Bali.

However, with hours of material to sort through, Portuguese-English translations to… translate, and a penchant for perfectionism brewing, we realized we wouldn’t be able to deliver the finished product in time to premiere it with Italo in Bali last night. So we gave them episode 2 instead.

Despite a prolonged, synchronized sigh that came over the audience upon hearing the news, Italo still threw quite the festa, and if you believe the imagery below the night was a great success.

And don’t fret — episode 3 will be dropping on time for Stab Premium members this Thursday, May 18th, at 5pm PDT.

Indulge your irises on the event’s festivities below:
