For some folks, vegan dining is up there on the taboo topics list with religion, politics and sexual orientation. After all, what people don’t eat behind closed doors is no one’s business but their own, right? But with a new Dallas location of the Fort Worth favorite Spiral Diner opening up, some of your dearest meat-eating friends might be coming out of the Granola-filled closet. Forget the sprouts and salads; this place can dish up a veggie version of just about any carne classic. There’s the Chick’n-Less Salad San’ich with diced seitan (wheat meat), chopped apples, cranberries and pecans tossed…

They make drinks stiff. (Among other things.) Meet the hot men and women of Bar10, a bartending staffing service that will leave your guests intoxicated with delight, not just booze. Yet don’t be fooled by this group’s good looks. Now we’ve all been to private parties whose hosts lure you to their events with promises of gorgeous bartenders with heavy-handed pours, but quite frankly, a lot of times they’re a bit of a letdown. Either they’re super-cute and have the personality of a cocktail onion, or they just can’t make a simple no-gin, extra-vodka, diet-ginger-ale-but-regular cola Long Island Iced Tea…

As always, this next week has its share of divas, some more anatomically correct than others. Throw in some booze and a few psycho killers for good measure and you’ve got the makings for a very interesting few days. Texas Fear Fest 2 Friday, March 7 through Sunday, March 9 Are you ready to meet everyone’s favorite sex symbol? Those eyes, that sweater, that killer handshake—yes, it’s Freddy Kruger, in the flesh. Sure, we all know when it comes to razor sharp digits, Edward Scissorhands and Barbra Streisand would beat him in an alley fight, but he doesn’t need to…

Seventy-six trombones and one drag queen peddling Tupperware lead this big parade. It’s a month of theatre outings offering up way more than the standard yawn-filled production of Our Town. Whether you’re a one-woman show kind of ‘mo or the fella who prefers the pa-rum-pum-pum-pum of a drummer boy, it’s time to get your tickets. The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead March 5 – April 6 Sounds like an ill-fated red carpet romp between Renée Zellweger, Eva Longoria Parker and Kathy Griffin, but it’s actually a one-woman show with seven distinctive characters. Expect more mood swings than Naomi…

Oh ye of the über modern plastic chairs, repent while there’s still time. Banish that uncomfortable, unstylish seating back to the trailer from whence it came and embrace the goodness that is arts and crafts style. Unlike runway fashion where today’s Manpri is tomorrow’s entrée to Mr. Blackwell’s list, classic furniture will never steer you wrong or make you look as dated as a HyperColor shirt (admit it, you wore one). That’s where Aneita Fern comes in offering a wooden wonderland of furniture and accessories in styles that look as good now as they did back in the day. Named…

Any foodie worth their saffron-infused salt knows that sometimes you have to trade a little ambience for a lot of flavor when seeking dining that’s off the trendy eatery radar. Such is the case with Bistro B, a deliciously authentic Vietnamese restaurant with a penchant for large-screen digital TVs playing Asian karaoke shows and Power Ranger episodes throughout your meal. Now fair warning: first-time diners to the B may find the extensive, multi-page menu and limited English descriptors daunting. But fear not, as the mouth-watering meal options are also coded by number. After a little trial and error, you’ll be…

There aren't many places outside of Thailand where you can get your salad tossed for under $10. But that was before Salata. The first Dallas outpost of the Houston-based create-your-own salad concept has already developed a cult-like following (even without Tom Cruise doing any of the recruiting). Choose from a variety of impeccable greens. Then add on unlimited veggies, fruits, nuts and cheeses. Pick your favorite type of marinated chicken or succulent seafood. Add an all-natural dressing (or three!), then ooh and ahh as your salad (or wrap) is created right before your eyes. There are enough choices that you…

We’ve checked the abacus, the sundial and our biological clocks and, indeed, it’s Leap Year. That means five Fridays in February and 24-hours more to fill with chichi shindigs. Since time is of the essence, we’ve taken the liberty of pulling together the highlights. Now get your Jack Bauer game face on and go for it. Dress for Disco at Studio S4 Friday, February 29, doors open 9:00 p.m. Break out the hot pants and hustle over to Station 4 for this homage to the golden era of gay groovin’. The cast of the Rose Room will be there with…

While it is fun to play the cynic, every now and again the icy cold heart of Gay List Daily is melted by some do-gooders spreading cheer and joy. Besides, having a sour puss all the time can enhance one’s crow’s feet. So today, it’s all about peace, smiles and the taught youthful skin that comes from caring. Hope for Peace and Justice is bringing Oprah fave Dr. Maya Angelou to town as the keynote speaker for its Voices of Peace event that kicks off a worldwide effort to bring harmony to the planet. The soiree also marks the beginning…

Nail salons are as ubiquitous in this city as Starbucks, generic donut shops and fake boobs. But finding a quality place for a manicure, waxing or other grooming necessity is about as hard as finding a Paula Dean recipe that calls for less than a stick of butter. So when a good one comes along, you need to jump on it like a hooker on a twenty. Time to belly up to Nail Bar. Modern design, a variety of must-have services and a friendly staff (rather than deadly staph) make this Chicago import a welcome addition to the Uptown ’hood.…
