Add La Cubanita to the list. Sure, it’s not technically a Cuban export, but it’s about as close a trip to Castroland as you’ll find in Dallas. The newest restaurant from prolific restaurateur Alberto Lombardi features authentic dishes and inspired twists. Crazy busy at night, this is still a fantastic somewhat undiscovered gem for lunch. At least for now. The cozy patio is perfect for whiling away a few hours sipping a fruity daiquiri or leafy mojito while having a “business” meeting. Of course, if your boss is really anti-rum breath, you can still order a Safe Sex on the…

It’s one thing to enjoy art in some snooty gallery surrounded by bowties and Botox, but if you really want the bohemian 411 you’ve got to go where the creative types work (and occasionally live). This weekend, the artists of the 120-year-old Continental Gin Building in Deep Ellum are opening their studio doors and letting you deep into the underbelly of the hipster art scene. We know, it sounds like a scene right out of Rent, huh? But it’s actually a great way to take in a variety of artists who work in different mediums, all while exploring a really…

Oh ye of routine weekend plans, break free from the shackles of chain restaurant dinners and Blockbuster rentals and indulge in something new. To get you started, we’ve pulled together a week’s worth of outings that will kick your monotony right in the hoo-hah. The thrill may be so titillating that next thing we know you’ll be staying up late on a school night – gasp. Little Shop of Horrors Opens Friday, April 25, 8:00 p.m. Not to be confused with the similarly titled Little Shop of Whores, this musical celebration of a man- (and woman-) eating plant from outer…

Oak Lawn is a fickle, fickle neighborhood. The gays can embrace a bar, restaurant or underwear shop and chat it up with all their friends, extolling its endless virtues. And then the very next week, cast it aside for the next new flavor. It’s how we roll. Yet when something truly good comes along, it has the rare opportunity to become a true fixture in the neighborhood and part of everyone’s routine. The newly opened Cyclone Anaya’s Mexican Kitchen, with its stellar patio, should be just that place. Slightly more Mex than Tex, the food is filled with bold flavors…

From the producers of Top Chef, Hell’s Kitchen and Fear Factor, we bring you Dallas’ favorite new reality show and grocery store: Hong Kong Market Place. And whether you’re the kind of person who’ll put anything in your mouth, or more of just a lookey-loo who’s more likely to enjoy packaging than actual product, this place is sure to deliver. Start with a stroll down the fruits and vegetables aisle where you’ll encounter oddities like winter melon, exotic mushrooms (no, not that kind) and even fresh tamarind, a popular part of curries and chutneys. If you notice a stench that…

Get ready for the gayest surfing movie ever. Well, at least since Point Break. There’s no Keanu in a wetsuit, but Shelter has its fair share of hot surfers and much better acting. Set in southern California, the film focuses on Zach (Trevor Wright), a young graffiti artist who’s given up on his own dreams to take care of his five-year-old nephew, Cody, while his older sister, Jeanne (Tina Holmes) hops from bad relationship to worse. Zach’s got a bad case of the blue-collar blues and only his surfing and his art can help him escape. When his wealthy best…

While being a grownup comes with perks like R-rated movies, mimosas for breakfast and the ability to hire a maid to clean up your room, the daily grind of the adult workweek comes with its own set of personal punishments, too. There’s the dreaded two-hour conference call that can make even the most toned of butts fall asleep. Or the water cooler chat that takes a dark turn when that extra-peppy coworker gives you a blow-by-blow recount of her child’s potty training prowess. Blech. Who moved your cheese, indeed! But fear not corporate tool, we’ve found the cure for the…

Sunny days sweeping the clouds away. Hang on to your Snuffleupagus, kids! It’s gonna be a busy week, so there’s no time to be grouchy.

Don’t you just love that new bar smell? Fresh paint, new furniture with notes of lingering sawdust combine for olfactory excitement second only to freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Or maybe bacon. But we digress. The new Sue Ellen’s opens tomorrow night at 10:00 p.m. with free cover and live music. And the lesbians are dancing in the streets like Hollywood was making a Desert Hearts sequel. The new incarnation of the iconic Dallas bar is kind of a “Sue Ellen’s 2.0” though. The move to the old Throckmorton Mining Company space not only makes it one of the nation’s…

At the risk of sounding like a certain iconic TV commercial, “sometimes we don’t feel so fresh.” But this time rather than broaching an awkward conversation with mom and a national audience, we’re heading to Zoë’s Kitchen where they know what freshness is all about. Well, at least when it comes to food. Boasting an easy-to-peruse, yet bountiful-enough-to-enjoy menu, Zoë’s is a great way to get your fast food on without the greasy guilt. Enjoy chicken in just about every variety, including as salad, on pitas or in roll-ups. There are even chicken kabobs and baked chicken dinners for four…
