You better watch out and we bet you’re gonna cry. Because Christmas is about to get a whole lot scary. Dark Hour Haunted House in Plano is decking the halls with blood, guts and various severed limbs. (These are a few of our favorite things!) So if you want to put the ho, ho, ho into horror this year, screaming your way through a haunted house may be just the holiday stress relief you need. Hell, it couldn’t be any scarier than Black Friday shopping. Dark Hour Wreck The Halls 2017 December 15, 17, 29 & 30 Tickets: $28 to…

Get cultured—and woke—all in one evening. Tonight, GenderBrave member Kilo Kikii joins May May Graves, Kennedy Davenport and other performers and artists to celebrate GenderArt at Resource Center. Winner of the Born This Way Foundation and Peace First Dallas Channel Kindness award, Kilo Kikii is part of a growing movement of young people to build a kinder and braver world. One that celebrates transgender and gender nonconformity artistry. The event is free, so surely you have time to pop in and kick off your weekend with a wonderful bit of art, music and drag, plus plenty of surprises. And that doesn’t even include…

No Dallas homo is worthy of street cred if they haven’t eaten at the Original Market Diner on Harry Hines. The place is an institution and gayer than three silver-dollar pancakes. Yet its once-sister restaurant across town, Circle Grill, remains a secret to many. Now under new ownership, regulars won’t find that anything has changed a bit, except for maybe some fancy new menus with pretty pictures. Some may argue that brunch without booze is just breakfast, but we can always use a platter of huevos and bacon without any additional temptation. Circle Grill has serious Quentin Tarantino-esque diner cred with…

Sure, we may have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the holiday season, but we won’t object to drag queens high-kicking and scream-syncing, that’s for sure. Yep. True dat. Your favorite divas are back next week for a holiday dragstravaganza at The House of Blues and good seats are still available. A Drag Queen Christmas: The Naughty Tour rolls through town Thursday, December 14 and so many of the greatest gals from RuPaul’s Drag Race will be onstage roasting their chests and nuts on an open fire. Check out a peppermint-flavored taste of what to expect in the video below, then join us.…

By now you should know the drill. Tomorrow’s the first Wednesday of the month (and also the last first Wednesday of the year). So don your LGBT apparel and hit the strip for 2017’s final Wine Walk through the gayborhood. Simply purchase a glass for $10 outside the Round-Up then mosey around the shops, restaurants and bars to do a little shopping and a little drinking at nearly 20 participating stops along the route. Enjoy festive music and the official tree lighting, too. As always, you’ll be entered to win a fab gift basket from the merchants along Cedar Springs Road. See…

For many people, the holidays season officially starts when Santa makes an appearance at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. For us, it’s Cassie Nova’s holiday extravaganza. Join us and fellow Cassmates tonight for a holiday drag spectacular, Cassie’s Freakmas 2017, benefiting the Sam Houston Secret Santa Program. You may be used to seeing her talent, beauty and quick wit on display at the Rose Room, but tonight’s show takes place at JR’s. (We’d hate to see you trying to break into S4 to get upstairs for a good seat.) It’s going to be fun, festive and totally…

Today is World AIDS Day. A day of raising awareness of the pandemic caused by the HIV infection spreading. It’s a day of remembrance, but also hope. And one of the best ways to honor those fighting the disease is to hear their stories. One we’d like to share is that of Nico Decastro. After being cast in the Filipino boy band A-Five, the currently based-in-Dallas singer/songwriter was raped at age 19. And that’s when he contracted HIV. Now, through his music, he’s able to convey much of his emotional and physical struggle, which he hopes resonates with anyone living with HIV…

Often we go to brunch because we’re hungover from the night before. Other times, brunch makes us hungover the next day. And then sometimes, it’s both. Fortunately, East Dallas hotspot The Lounge Here kicked off Sunday brunch last month and the glorious, retro, mostly windowless space is just as dark in the daytime as it is after sunset. Perfect for soothing a day-after headache. The food does a great job, too. Start with a dozen donut holes from neighbor Hypnotic Donuts across the street. They’re fruit-adjacent, so they’re healthy. Right?Then work your way through the short list of brunch dishes. Chicken fried ribeye…

It’s the fugliest time of the year, y’all. The Ugly Sweater Party trend doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon, so might as well embrace it—and even win a little cash for having the best worst taste. You’ll have countless opportunities this holiday season to break out the creepy Santas, weird-looking reindeer and evil snowmen, but there are two we definitely think you should add to your calendar. This Saturday, The Round-Up presents its Toy Drive & Tacky Sweater Contest where you can help make a child’s holiday brighter by donating a new toy (or several), as well as showing…

Elvis hasn’t left the building. You just might not recognize him due to the high heels and fishnet stockings. That’s the central premise of the hilarious Off-Broadway sensation, The Legend of Georgia McBride, making its regional premiere this Friday. Uptown Players presents the comedy, which stars Kyle Igneczi in the title role of a down-on-his-luck Elvis impersonator who’s flat broke and about to have a baby. That’s when the over-the-top drag guru Miss Tracy Mills turns his life upside-down by convincing him to put a new twist on impersonating the King of Rock & Roll. Get your tickets now then prepare for a…
