It’s Thursday everyone, and you know what that means: it’s Gay Hump Day! Here’s a list with plenty of activities to keep you out of trouble, or possibly get you into more. Weekend Calendar Cool Thursdays at the Arboretum October 18 (tonight), 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Attention Swingers! The Big Band stylings of Tuxedo Junction will fill the autumn air with musical joy while you and yours sit atop a blanket, chugging box wine and eating a variety of delectable fruits and cheeses packed by your loving boyfriend. Or maybe you’re more the Schlitz and Vienna sausages type. We…

Remember that movie Stand By Me where a group of young lads go on a boyhood journey and in the process lose their innocence? Well, From Fifth Grade To Fabulous is nothing like that – except for the whole loss of innocence part. Comedian/actor Paul J. Williams and vocal impressionist/illusionist Mark Alan Smith originally met in fifth grade in San Antonio, Texas. We weren’t there, but we imagine that a pinky swear pledging eternal devotion to the Cher fan club was a big part of the budding friendship. Through the years, they’ve remained pals and honed their gifts of comedy,…

Gaytown has a new Mexican restaurant, named after some artist chick played by Salma Hayek. There are giant eyebrows everywhere, but not to fear. None in the food. In the space formerly occupied by Ciao Marco Italian, Frida’s has a simple, hip, Mexico City vibe. There’s nothing Tex-Mex about anything on the menu. And that’s a good thing. Lunch and dinner are delicious, but it’s the brunch menu that will have you ignoring the snooze button at noon this Sunday. Egg dishes ring in at a mere $6.50, and breakfast cocktails are a boracho bargain at just four bucks! There…

Not since the domestic partnership of chocolate and peanut butter has there been a flavor pairing as progressive (and delicious) as the Margarita Truffle. A downright decadent combination of cocoa-rich dark chocolate, premium margarita-infused ganache and just a little sprinkle of sea salt, this Tex-Mex taste accoutrement satisfies even the most voracious compulsion for salty/sweet goodness. Stumbling upon this chocktail (chocolate + cocktail) even brought us more joy than finding the perfect belt to match those shoes that have been sitting in our closet all season. Now that’s good stuff! Margarita Truffles, concocted by local candy man Dorian Isenberg of…

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.…

Why settle for belting out a witty quip that only falls on a few deaf ears, when you can display your sass loud and proud on a t-shirt for all to see The good folks at BustedTees have searched far and wide to make sure no pun, or pop culture reference, goes unexploited. Whether you’re looking to defend Lindsay, show your support for Stewart & Colbert in ’08 or wax nostalgic for childhood games like those plus size Hungry Hungry Hippos – there’s a shirt available to help your chest say it best. For those of us who have “grown…

Hey Nellie Olsen, or should we just call you Nellie for short, do you find that your ho hum style of denim and t-shirts is starting to look like something Laura Ingalls whipped up on her sewing machine? No worries, a quick trip to House of Dang is sure to fix that with a bevy of reworked vintage looks and even an in-house line of fashionable threads to choose from. 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…

It’s Thursday, October 4, and that can only mean one thing: it’s time to start planning your weekend, little Lohans! We’ve got art, theatre, music, film, exercise and greener living all at your mani’ed fingertips. Weekend Calendar MY OWN PRIVATE DIVA, by Terry Dobson Opens Friday, October 5th We all have a diva in our lives, and we’re each one to someone else.
