We’ve never once sat through an entire episode of Dancing with the Stars. Of course, we’ve seen clips online from time to time and get recaps from our mom on a weekly basis. We can even honestly understand the appeal—it’s just that there are about a hundred scripted shows higher on our list. But a live version? That’s a whole different ballgame. It has everything we want in a night out: great music, hot men and plenty of cheese. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vH2Gt7jea8 The “Light up the Night” tour rolls into town this Friday and we can’t think of a better way to get out…

Every year we make the same pledge. And every year we fail. No, we’re not talking about our annual giving-up-drinking-eat-healthier New Year’s Resolution charade. We’re talking about seeing all the Academy Awards Best Picture nominees. Some theater chains re-release the films for marathon viewing over a couple days, but we can’t handle that much time in a seated position. Kneeling, maybe. But Regal Entertainment Group is doing things a little differently with a festival pass for $35 that gets you access to all nine nominees. Best of all, it’s spread out from this Friday, February 23 through Sunday, March 4.…

How do you like your wigs? Scrambled, fried or funny-side up? For us, the answer’s “all of the above.” We’ve been in desperate need of a drag brunch ever since Cedar Grove closed, but Marsha Dimes and her wigged-out pals are here to save the mid-day! The second-ever Marsha & Friends Drag Brunch will smack you in the face with low-rent shenanigans this Saturday, February 24 at Cedar Springs Tap House. Your $35 ticket gets you an entrée, three mimosas and a $10 donation to LifeWalk, the big fundraiser for Prism Health North Texas. Marsha insists she and her friends aren’t professional entertainers,…

Don’t judge us. We love a sliced roast beef sandwich and curly fries on occasion. But until now, we had to satisfy our craving at a fast-food spot that rhymes with Schmarby’s and always lets us down in terms of the final product. We hate when something sounds better than it actually is (hence our cancellation of Grindr.) Well, no more. We have a far fancier version of that fast-food favorite with the first location of Top Round in Texas at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving. Owned by Jason Napolitan and his fiancé Daniel Blaylock, this gay-owned franchise delivers…

Some people like to turn over in bed and see someone special lying next to them. Other people like to turn over and see a note taped to the pillow that says “Meet me for tacos.” Our preference falls somewhere between the two—with a heavy lean toward the taco scenario. Well, Dallas, we now have a new location on Greenville Avenue of one of our city’s greatest fast-casual concepts: Velvet Taco. Not only do they have some of the most imaginative tortillas-wrapped-around-something creations in the business, they have a trio of frittata brunch tacos available All. Damn. Day! Of course,…

Some of us don’t get sucked into all the hype surrounding holidays, which is why we will NOT be celebrating National Ferris Wheel Day today. Or Valentine’s Day, for that matter. If you’re like us and you think Valentine’s Day is dumb, you’re single and bitter, married and bitter, or just like to hang out on a Hump Day and think about anything but humping, head to Woody’s tonight. At 10:00 p.m., Broken Heart Karaoke takes over with $4 Fireball drinks all night and sappy songs about heartbreak until 2:00 a.m. And at least one person performing “Despacito” really, really poorly. Broken Heart Karaoke…

Our lives wouldn’t be complete without J.R. and Sue Ellen. And not just the local gay bars bearing their names. The nighttime soap Dallas was a huge influence on our teen years and even played a big part in making us want to live in Big D when we grew up. So imagine our excitement when we heard about the upcoming 40th anniversary of the iconic TV show. In celebration of the milestone year, original cast members Linda Gray (Sue Ellen Ewing), Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing), Charlene Tilton (Lucy Ewing) and Steve Kanaly (Ray Krebbs) will all be in attendance Presented…

If ever there were a time to not break out your little black dress (or anything black, gray or otherwise drab, really), it’s this year’s Bollywood-themed Toast to Life. On Saturday, March 3, The Empire Room will be transformed into the magical world of elaborate Bollywood movies with host Steve Kemble and DJ Jennifer Miller keeping things lively all night long. Presented by Purple Foundation, the party features both a silent and live auction, open bar, food stations from top Dallas restaurants and plenty of dancing, dancing, dancing! Tickets are $150, which is quite the bargain for a charity event of this magnitude.…

Now that all this football nonsense is over, we’re ready for some sports we can actually enjoy. Mostly men’s figure skating, but that curling thing always gives us the giggles, too. Well, there’s no better way to watch the Winter Olympics than with a bunch of gays, so when we find our favorite sports on the NBC broadcasting schedule, we’ll make our way to Woody’s for daily drink specials and plenty of sass-talking in the direction of the screen. And no time like tonight’s opening ceremony hosted by Mike Tirico and Katie Couric from PyeongChang Olympic Stadium to get into the…

If you want your baby back, baby back, baby back, you’re out of luck on Knox Street. But if you want something waaaaay better than what was served in the former Chili’s it occupies, try Up on Knox this weekend. Not only is the space amazingly cool—and completely free of the chain-restaurant ghosts of its past—brunch here is one of our favorites of the past several months. For starters, it’s a nice long one. (And we love a nice long one.) It runs Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., so you can rise with the roosters or sleep off that hangover and…
