One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Take for example Ryan Seacrest. The gays don’t want him, but American Idol loves him – go figure. The same logic can be applied to culture, including some of this week’s outings. You could watch drag queens vie to be the prettiest princess or check out some of the most famous Impressionist paintings in the world. Highbrow, lowbrow, unibrow: it’s all here. (Okay, except for the unibrow, we’ll wax that off before you can bat a bushy eyelash!) Tastes Grape, Less Filling Wine Tasting Tonight, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Whether you are a…

Why, just yesterday we were staring out the window watching the pool boy work his skimmer, when that glaring eyesore of a grill cover came into view and completely ruined the mood. Poor barbeque grills, not only do they have the distinction of being the meatheads’ tool of choice at every tailgate party from here to Nantucket, they also got the shaft in the glam department. Really, a dull black cover as their only option? It’s a fate worse than having to shop exclusively at Old Navy for the rest of our lives. Apparently we weren’t the only ones lamenting…

Dallas has its very own Woody Allen. But he’s cuter. Gayer. And not so into the marrying-your-daughter gig. But when it comes to prolific filmmaking, Israel Luna may soon catch up to Woody’s movie-per-year frequency. We’ve been fans of Israel’s ever since his short-lived, but hilarious, cable-access gay soap opera, Boobs, Boys & High Heels back in the ’90s. Since 2002, he’s written five screenplays and directed four of them himself. And he has several more movies in the works, including a documentary about Mexican donkey shows (we’re so in line for that one already) and a horror movie cryptically…

So, the other day we were walking down Cedar Springs after “sampling” cocktails at every bar along the strip. You know, research in the name of science. And keeping in-the-know. As we trekked to Walgreen’s for our pre-hangover remedy of Yoo-hoo, baby aspirin and Bugles, we stopped to gaze through the windows of NUVO, one of our preferred gayborhood shopping haunts. The next day (in actual daylight) we popped in to see Donna Lanier, one of our favorite reasons to shop at NUVO. If you need a gift, just let her know your budget and the occasion and she’ll find…

Welcome to Gay List Daily’s modern furniture sex education course. Today’s topic: how new suppliers of streamlined furniture are made. When a daddy Ikea loves a mommy West Elm very much, he rubs his A57 screw against her D43 wing nut (as indicated in the directions in figure C) and ta-dah, a baby is made. By baby we mean EQ3, the new ultra-cool furniture retailer calling Dallas home. Upon first glance, it may seem like just another chrome-legged, European egg chair peddler – and to a degree it is. But this time, the egg chairs have more fabric choices, including…

As they say at Shakespeare in the Park, “Damn, these mosquitoes are bad!” Verily. Well, you better stock up on Caladryl because just about everything worth doing this weekend is outside in the humid bugland we call the Metroplex. Besides, red welts are once again all the rage in Chernobyl this season. Tastes Like Miss Ellie (With A Dash of Sue Ellen) Taste of Dallas Friday, July 11 through Sunday, July 13 Head to the West End (believe it or not, it’s still there) and sample some of the city’s best food (more like gorge yourself) while listening to live…

As a gallon of gas rapidly approaches the price of a gallon of Absolut, we must not sit idly by and crawl into a recession-fueled hole. It’s time to take action as a community and finally say NO to “the man.” And that means saving money on our booze budget by taking our own hooch to some of the city’s greatest hole-in-the-wall restaurants. Sure, none of these places are fancy (far from it), but the food is fantastic and that’s really all that matters. Following are our picks, across a wide spectrum of gastronomic genres, for Dallas’ top BYOB spots.…

Welcome to July in Texas, or as we like to call it: hell on earth. With oppressive heat like this a mainstay in our fair state’s summer months, it’s no wonder that Aunt Stelle’s Sno Cones has been going strong for 47 years. Well, that and the fact that these balls-o’-ice and syrup are amazingly delicious. Since this is really one of those hole-in-the-wall institutions, we’ll share a few rules of etiquette with you so you don’t lose street cred during your visit. First, be ready to stand in line, it’s part of the tradition – the hotter the temperature,…

It wasn’t so much the reputation for the food at Café R+D that lured us in, as it was the rumor that it had become a total cougar haunt for all of Park Cities’ most eligible Miss Fiftysomethings. With all the good TV on summer break, we figured what better way to pass a few hours than by watching a Botox-browed Mrs. Robinson catch herself her very own Ashton Kutcher. And while you couldn’t a raise a dirty martini without falling into the freshly-raised cleavage of one of these ladies on the prowl, their college-age prey seemed suspiciously absent. So…

Whenever we need a pop-culture fix, whether it’s the latest edition of “Betty and Veronica,” a hand-painted bust of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the mantel or that new Chewbacca bobblehead for the top of Grandma’s casket, Zeus Toys & Comics is the authority on all things animated, sci-fi, or just plain cool. Out owner Richard Neal is what makes Zeus more than just a comic-book store, and one of our favorite haunts for years. He has an eye – and a passion – for what people want to collect. Whether you’re a keep-it-in-the-box-forever-and-hope-it-sells-for-millions-on-eBay type or someone who simply wants…
