We like our Ellums deep and our drinks stiff. Luckily we get both at STIRR. The popular hotspot has been a favorite hangout of ours since opening last year and as much as we enjoy the nighttime vibe there, we really dig the Deep Ellum neighborhood most during brunch. We and our friends usually always start with a Bloody Mary, but here it’s even better because we can get a carafe for the entire table for only 20 bucks, about the price of two of the tomatoey cocktails many other places. Or we can really get things kicked off with a STIRR…

UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. sad face. Now there’s a gal we’d like to bone. (As in making her look like a skeleton with artfully applied make-up.) That’s what we’ll be saying this Sunday night backstage at the Sugar Skull Soirée when Asia Delarosa, Layla LaRue, Linzee Serell, Mayra, Onyx, Sable Alexander, Sabrina Starr and Thai Mai Shu get dressed for their performances. Hosted by Contessa Piranha and Lotta Pink, this campy, creepy Dia de Los Muertos-inspired drag fest is a party you need in your life. Or afterlife, as the case may be. For twenty bucks, you’ll get 2.5 hours…

Some people like peanut butter and chocolate. Others enjoy gin and tonic. But one of our favorite combinations is Uptown Players and male nudity. Call us old-fashioned. This week, the Broadway smash musical The Full Monty comes to the Kalita Humphreys Theater for three weekends of fabulous singing, dancing and naked men playing down-on-their-luck steelworkers who come up with a delightful scheme to make a few extra bucks to support their families. Based on the hit 1997 film, The Full Monty features a book by legendary gay writer Terrence McNally and a score by David Yazbek. It was nominated for…

We don’t know why wearing a cape makes someone a superhero. We wear one around the house every day and we’ve never once been asked to save the world. But this Saturday night, we can wear our cape out in public as the North Texas GLBT Chamber of Commerce presents Spooktacular, its annual fundraiser. This year’s theme, as you may have guessed, is “Superhero.” So break out your Wonder Woman bustier, your high-heel Superman boots or your Batman codpiece for a night of cocktails, appetizers and a fantastic auction. Tickets are only $35 (with sponsorships available, too) and proceeds from…

If life isn’t already a cabaret for you, don’t worry. It will be one week from tonight. That’s when 3015 at Trinity Groves transforms into a 1930s/40s-style nightclub featuring Turtle Creek Chorale soloists and the fabulous, award-winning singer and actor Denise Lee headlining an evening of fundraising and all that jazz. After Dark features an evening of cocktails, wine and sinful desserts, plus a big-board auction filled with plenty of YOLO-worthy experiences ready to be bid upon generously. Tickets are $75 for general admission or $125 for VIP, which includes a pre-event reception and a special performance just for those…

Which came first, the salmon or the egg? We’re not sure we care because we can get both, plus other seafood favorites like jumbo lump crab Benedict (above) during the recently launched brunch at Water Grill in Uptown. If you haven’t been to this California import yet, we highly recommend it for every meal of the day. Fish gets flown in daily from the restaurant’s exclusive supply, so it’s among the freshest in town. But you understand our fondness for brunch, so we think that’s a great place to start because not only do you get a taste of some truly delectable breakfast dishes, but…

Another month, another show featuring RuPaul’s Drag Race favorites. And we’re not complaining—because we love the hardest working gals in show biz! If you don’t already have tickets to next week’s Werq the World Tour, don’t worry. Even though the up-close-and-up-their-cooch seats are sold out, there are still some seats in the balcony at the Majestic Theatre downtown. Normally we wouldn’t suggest sitting toward the back of the theater, but at the intimate Majestic, even the farthest seats from the stage are pretty damn good. And at $39, a real bargain. Bob the Drag Queens hosts (yay!) and beloved queens scheduled to…

The Triplets of Belleville won us over way back in 2003. And we weren’t alone. The French film became a surprise hit around the world because of its utter charm, clever story and distinctive animation style. But also because of the music. Ooh, la, la, the music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZeWp1D8MlU This week, experience the film in a completely wonderful way at an outdoor screening accompanied by a live orchestra. Conducted by the Oscar Award-nominated composer and conductor himself, Benoit Charest. Want to see it for free? Or just have a really cool experience getting to the movie? Be one of the first 25 people…

Some boys play football. Others, baseball. And, on the good side of town, polo. Our sport of choice growing up, however, was spelling. It required zero coordination and didn’t involve getting naked in a locker room before a match. Therefore, we lived for spelling bees each year and even though we never made it past the citywide competition, we could still negotiate the alphabet better than any quarterback doing his quarterbacking stuff. So it should come as little surprise that we absolutely adore the Tony Award-winning musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. The University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Theatre Company…

We’re streetwalkers at heart. And not just because we get paid for sex. Sure, it’s in coins, but that’s another story for another day. We love a good festival and with Pride over and LifeWalk done, we’ve been on the hunt for an event featuring food, music and, of course, booze. The State Fair’s an option, but we wouldn’t dare go to that shit show on a weekend. If we wanted to wait in line for 20 minutes for a $7 corndog, we’d go to Neiman Marcus and have them make us one out of foie gras while we shop…
