This just in, diamonds are no longer a girl’s best friend. Turns out the longtime BFFs ended up in a feud more longstanding than the Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie debacle of ’06. And according to our sources, said sparkles have been seen swishing and swirling alongside a new crew in the form of decadent ice cubes. Don’t you just love our overactive imagination with inanimate objects?! But like all of our tales of fabulosity, it is grounded in a grain of truth. Thanks to our handy dandy Cool Jewels Ice Cube Tray, we’ve been whipping up batches of gem-filled cocktails all…

It’s never a good sign when there’s ample parking outside of a really good restaurant on a Saturday night. Add to that one lone tumbleweed blowing down the road and you have the foreshadowing of a very bad experience – kind of like when the girl’s high heel breaks as she tries to run in Friday The 13th. Luckily that was not case for our much overdue return visit to the Local, chef Tracy Miller’s gem of a foodie haunt tucked inside the old Boyd Hotel. Local is the kind of place you go for a long, drawn out dinner…

Yeah, we know. Hair salons in Uptown Dallas are as ubiquitous as wrinkles on Bea Arthur’s boobs. So it takes an extra-special perm palace to catch our attention and find its way into our inner coif circle. Take note: Dear Clark is not your grandmother’s beauty shop. It’s the understated, sophisticated quintessence of chic. Owners Holly Dear and Kaycee Clark bring together years of salon experience and have lured the hottest stylists to lather, rinse and repeat for their überhip clientele. We followed one of our favorite stylists to the salon and have fallen in love with the space. If…

This week’s events read like the beginning of a bad joke: four drag queens, a Michael Jackson Tribute Band and a seamstress for hookers walk into a bar… Sadly we don’t know the punch line, but this eclectic collection of outings is sure to deliver some very memorable stories for you to bust out at the water cooler. After all, someone has to bring the stories of the fabulous life back to the “little people” at the office. Are you up to the challenge? Q Cinema – Fort Worth’s International Gay & Lesbian Film Festival Tonight through Saturday, June 7…

While the Internet age has made it extra easy to reach out and touch someone, some of us prefer the old standby pen and paper to truly capture our feelings. Sure, it’s way more prehistoric than that YouTube link of the monkey smelling his finger and falling off the branch, but we like to think our delicious inscriptions will live on, stored away in some hope chest of the boys who still pine for us. Sadly not all occasions are captured by the purists at Hallmark, which is why we love the twisted line of cards from Cerebral Itch. Whether…

In fashion, the rule of thumb is that you are too old to wear something if you wore it the first time it was trendy. Luckily the same rules don’t apply to theatre. This month, you can celebrate two TV favorites, Gilligan’s Island and The Facts of Life, in new, musically fabulous incarnations. There’s also a tribute to man’s best friend (A Dog’s Life), lawyers gone wild (Sleazy Todd) and “the funniest musical you’ve never seen” (The Drowsy Chaperone). So, get ready for an evening at the theatre, just make sure to leave your bell-bottoms and parachute pants at home.…

As the warm days of spring turn into the OMFG-it’s-an-inferno hot afternoons of summer, we all need something to cool us off. And believe it or not, it doesn’t have to end in –eer, –argarita or –ong Island Iced Tea to do the trick. Nor filled with fattening milk or cream, either. What is this food of the future, you ask? Why, none other than our long forgotten frozen friend, sorbet. You know, Prince sang about a girl wearing a raspberry one. The kind u find in a second-hand store. Ain’t nothin’ second-hand about the chic Sorbeteria Dallas, the newest…

The funny thing about a lost love is that you don’t realize how much you truly miss it until it comes racing back into your life. But what if it’s too late? What if love has passed you by and what remains is merely a cozy memory? Is Mr. Right nothing more than the bartender pouring you another Cosmo that will soon caress the lips that once came together for one soul-stirring, monumental kiss for the ages? What if the… Oh, sorry. We sometimes get a little too caught up in our Carrie Bradshaw Voiceover Role-Playing Game. But at least…

That warm, moist feeling you have right now isn’t just because it’s 100 degrees outside. It’s because you’re glistening with anticipation for everything the city has to offer this weekend. Happy Hour at Fuse Tonight (and every Tuesday through Friday this summer), 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. When you're alone and life is making you lonely, you can always go downtown – for cheap drinks and half-price appetizers and sushi! Hanging out by the rooftop pool at Fuse is always festive and très urbane, but when they add inexpensive food and drinks to the mix, we’re even easier to persuade than…

Oh, the woes of the fashionista. A closet (or six) full of clothing and nothing to wear. It’s time to purge and make room for some new pieces. But Lord knows the landfills are already full of parachute pants, denim shorts and Lance Armstrong bracelets, so where can you take your favorite fashions to find a loving home? Buffalo Exchange is the Al Gore of clothing stores, ready to teach a lesson on recycling and getting bigger every year. The chain’s Dallas location has been open for several years, but it’s still tops when it comes to exchanging your bottoms.…
