Ah, tits and ass. The first Broadway musical we ever saw was a touring production of A Chorus Line. Before that, we’d somehow  been led to believe that all musicals were G-rated, saccharine-sweet productions, most likely because our mom force-fed us Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music whenever possible. So when we first heard the raunchy-by-comparison lyrics to “Dance Ten, Looks Three” about boobies and booties, we suddenly understood there was a whole world out there that was sassy, sarcastic and sinful. If we hadn’t already known we were gay, this totally would’ve been the moment we figured it out. But enough…

Origin stories are a big deal right now. Young Sheldon. Wonder Woman. The Moronic Adventures of Lil’ Trumpy & The Tiny Pussy Grabbers. Yet much like Bates Motel, another project that explored the developmental years of an iconic character, My Friend Dahmer also takes us into the young life of gay serial killer. Except, even creepier, this one’s not fiction. Based on a graphic novel of the same name, the movie stars Ross Lynch as Jeffrey Dahmer, opens next weekend for a limited run at The Texas Theatre, so grab your tickets now. And maybe a refill on your favorite sleeping pill. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmnuC7tn9D4 My Friend…

Trying something different is soooo 2018. But if you want to ring in the New Year in the gayborhood, it’s really just a matter of picking your favorite bar and bringing all your friends. Because they’re all offering pretty much the same thing: a “champagne” toast at midnight and a cash drop at some point in the evening. Why complicate things? It’s all about who you’re with when it comes right down to it. (And maybe how short the lines are at the bar.) So whether you prefer Sue Ellen’s, JR’s, TMC, S4, The Round-Up or Woody’s, all the big…

Which came first, the chicken or the Bloody Mary? If you’re at Street’s Fine Chicken for the gayborhood eatery’s newly launched brunch, we can pretty much guarantee the cocktails will hit the table before the poultry, thus ending the long-running debate. We kicked off our Sunday Funday shenanigans this past weekend at the popular Cedar Springs chicken restaurant and fell in love with the down-home brunch dishes that riff nicely on their regular lunch and dinner menu (see several photos at the end of the story). Instead of a huge list of new items, the owners have chosen to focus…

Don’t worry if you’re at JR’s tonight and you think you’re seeing some strange things. Stranger than normal, at least. Tonight, the staff of S4 takes over JR’s for an evening of shenanigans behind the bar and throughout the popular two-story hangout. Plus, there’ll be a special show at 11:00 p.m. starring Sasha Andrews and Sandy Davis. Because sometimes climbing that long flight of stairs to the Rose Room is more than we can handle. Station 4 Takes Over JR’s Tonight Special performance begins at 11:00 p.m. partyattheblock.com

Cirque du Soleil. By now those three words require no further explanation. And even if they did, this video will do an ever better job: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=Nlfbm0b4FBQ Because if a picture’s worth 1,000 words, a 90-second YouTube video must be worth a million.

We love a good organ extravaganza. Just ask our Grindr friends. But we also enjoy holiday music. Tomorrow, we can get both as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents DSO On the Go: Big Brassy Christmas & Organ Extravaganza in Preston Hollow. The symphony’s brass and percussion ensembles will be joined by Bradley Hunter Welch on the organ for an evening of holiday favorites that will make your Tuesday feel totally weekendy. Not to mention merry and bright. DSO On the Go: Big Brassy Christmas & Organ Extravaganza December 19 7:00 p.m. Tickets: $19 Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church 9800 Preston Road, Dallas mydso.org 

Only one more week. That’s it. Hang in there if you’re able. If you can make it until next Friday, you won’t have to deal with any more holiday posts for another 340 days or so. But there are two events this weekend that sound like a whole lot of fun in case you still need a shot in the arm of Grade A Festivity Juice. The first takes place tomorrow at Truck Yard and features a little person Santa who will actually pose on your lap for a shift in tradition. He’ll be played this year by Drew Rin Varick, an actor you may…

Probably everyone reading this has eaten cold pizza for breakfast. But hot pizza for brunch? Waaaay better. And so much more adult. One of our favorite restaurants to open in 2017 is Sassetta in the Dallas Design District, so we grabbed a few friends this past weekend to try out the brunch menu and knock back a few bottles of bubbly before the whole thing was said and done. And as we expected, the meal was superb and everyone in our party visiting the Italian joint for the first time claimed to have a new favorite restaurant, too. The brunch section of the…

We love a little R&B at Christmas. But this year, we’re not talking about Rum & Bourbon. Or Reindeer & Bells. No, this Sunday we mean R&B in the best sense: Rhythm & Blues. The Majestic Theatre is about to get a whole lot more festive when The Colors of Christmas rolls into town for the touring production’s final stop. Dance diva Jody Watley (pictured) joins Peabo Bryson, Ruben Studdard, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. for some soulful holiday tunes and an unforgettable show. Bring your friends, bring your family, bring ’em all. Yule love it, we promise. The Colors of Christmas…
