So the State Fair of Texas isn’t exactly the gayest place on earth, but it is a wonderful guilty pleasure where you can indulge the urge to wear socks with sandals and strut your inner mullet. Slumming can be fun — just ask Anastasia Beaverhausen. There’s plenty of decadent fun to be had in the shadows of our favorite ginormous man-puppet, Big Tex. Abs be damned, the fair is all about the food (and a few freckled kids in overalls who raise sheep thrown in for variety). Believe it or not, two of the much-ballyhooed new fried foods this year…

Hello homo, has the workweek taken a toll that not even the best of under-eye concealers can correct? Well, pack those bags and head out to one of these jaunty adventures this weekend. Weekend Calendar Nipples to the Wind Opens Friday, October 12th Yeah, the title made us perk up, too. But it’s actually an old Texas expression for a “heads up, chest out” attitude – in this case, presented as a series of 14 monologues and kooky characters played by Jayne Anderson and Paula Coco. Think of it as the love child of The Vagina Monologues and Greater Tuna.…

The brainchild of stylists Andrew Bayer and Douglas Voisin, House of Dang bills itself as an “alternative to terrible” shop and features wall-to-wall finds ranging from retro furniture pieces and…

We admit: we snuck a peek at your iPod the other day. Your play list is as tired as a drag queen doing Melissa Etheridge. Seriously. Fret not: the wizards at Pandora are bringing sexy music back. The artistes of the Human Genome Project have spent years indexing zillions of songs in a few hundred ways to collect fresh musical talent. Pandora is their net-based record player of the future. And just for you. You suggest a song or artist you love – say, Britney – and Pandora googles their database to create an entire Britney-esque, commercial-free radio station of…

When you hear the words “steel” and “underwear” in the same sentence, images of virginal maidens chipping away at the padlocks on their chastity belts likely spring to mind. Or the sort of weird, chain mail banana hammocks that only a Chippendales dancer would be caught alive in. Next, picture “25-year anniversary” and “underwear” together. (We’ll pause while you try to block that mental snapshot of your mom in a T-back and Dad in tighty-whities that go down to his knees.) OK, enough cruelty for one day. Take off your pants and rejoice! It’s the 25th anniversary of Calvin Klein…

Helmed by chefs Douglas Brown and Stephen DeSandro, Cliff Café serves up “comfort food” with a foodie twist – three meals daily, seven days a week.
