Could this be one of the best gay weeks ever? First, we have Madonna’s 60th birthday to celebrate tomorrow. Then just one day later, the happiest holiday of them all: Dolly Day! Presented by The Rustic in Uptown, this all-night celebration of the glorious country legend features live music galore from Raised Right Men, Frankie Leonie, Harper Grace, Madison King and Summer Dean—all covering Dolly country classics beginning at 9:30 p.m. Dress like Dolly and walk away with up to $100 gift card in the lookalike competition. Dine on food truck favorites. Pamper yourself with $5 manicures. RSVP to hold…

Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it. Our queen turns 60 this week and we’re ready to celebrate! This Thursday, JR’s hosts the 2018 Madonnarama Extravaganza starting at 5:00 p.m. and we’re living for it. Sure, we could just pull up our massive Maddona playlist and dance naked around the mulberry bush, but it’s so much more fun to hear her music among all her adoring gays. So throw on a cone bra, gather your friends and head to JR’s for nonstop Madonna music videos. And probably at least one impromptu vogue-off. 2018 Madonnarama Extravaganza Madonna’s Birthday, August 16 5:00…

What’s the best way to celebrate making it through another Monday? Staying up late and missing work on Tuesday! Tonight, starting at 10:00 p.m., C.E.B.A. (Caven Enterprises Benevolence Association) presents its annual Turnabout Show with hostess extraordinaire, Cassie Nova. Employees from JR’s, Station 4, Sue Ellen’s and TMC will appear in drag, some for the first time. Some as seasoned pros. But no matter what, it’s always an amazing night of gender fluidity. And vodka fluidity. C.E.B.A. Turnabout on Cedar Springs Tonight, 10:00 p.m. JR’s Bar & Grill partyattheblock.com

We just watched a new documentary and saw our future as clear as the balls on an unneutered dog. We want to be the next Danny or Ron. Because after screening Life in the Doghouse, we can’t think of anything better than having a house full of dozens of cute, cuddly dogs in need of rescue. The documentary follows this remarkable, compassionate couple as they celebrate 10 years and 10,000 rescues from their home-run non-profit. We ugly-cried through half the movie and happy-cried the other half. But in the end, it’s such an uplifting story about finding a passion and using it to…

That woman on the stage has a really big secret. No, not that she’s got a sausage under her support hose. It’s that Don’t Tell Supper Club downtown hosts a drag brunch every other Sunday and it’s time to help spread the word. Even though it launched last year, we know several gays who still haven’t heard the good news. So we were invited to our first Not Your Mama’s Drag Brunch this past Sunday to stick our fork in some eggs, wrap our lips around some mimosas, and stick dollar bills into some corsets. We were definitely not disappointed. Each drag…

If you’re a particularly pious person, perhaps this puppet play’s perilous. But if you love a good skewering of organized religion like we do, Hand to God at WaterTower Theatre in Addison is just what you need. Not only does the show feature foul-mouthed puppets, the production is a fully immersive experience. You pick your seat then sit back and enjoy the action unfold around you. The regional premiere of the show that took Broadway by storm follows a young man in Texas and the havoc-wreaking that occurs when Tyrone, a puppet from his church’s puppet ministry, becomes possibly possessed. Exposing hypocrisy left and…

A change of scenery always does us good. As much as we like the air-conditioned darkness of the Round-Up and the people-watching from the balcony at J.R.’s, we don’t always have to be at a gay bar to have a good time. So we were excited when a little birdie told us to check out the new Upside West Village on the rooftop of the recently debuted Canopy by Hilton. The view wows, as you can see for yourself in these photos. We imagine this will soon be one of the most-used spots for selfies and other photos featuring the spectacular…

You like to watch, don’t you? But isn’t it more fun to be a part of the action? That’s our philosophy regarding Dallas Pride Weekend festivities, at least. Instead of just being one of the crowd this September, you can volunteer your time to work a booth at the Dallas Pride Festival or even walk with an organization like the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) in the Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Find out about all the amazing volunteer opportunities by signing up online and waiting for instructions. You can even do your own stunts. Dallas Pride Weekend…

No more waiting. McQueen has arrived. After opening in very select theaters on July 20, the documentary about the revolutionary gay fashion designer Alexander McQueen has debuted in Dallas. After early-bird showings last night, the film officially opens today with reserved seating at Angelika Film Center. Celebrate this complicated man with an intimate look at his muses and demons alike. Because stories about geniuses never go out of style. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OjX3ZbsfbU McQueen Now showing Angelika Film Center Mockingbird Station 5321 East Mockingbird Lane, Dallas mcqueen.film Photo by Bleecker Street Media

Sunday Funday doesn’t have to happen every week. Sometimes, we enjoy Sunday Bumday. But that doesn’t stop us from craving a good brunch. And a little booze (though not as much as normal). Then again, sometimes the only buzz we crave is from a healthy dose of caffeine. That’s why the recently opened second location of Mudsmith at the Centrum building in the gayborhood makes it into our rotation, from weekdays to weekends. The small but well-executed menu features everything from a variety of toasts and breakfast sandwiches to larger plates. The herbed tomato avocado toast (above left) features smashed…
