Don’t you just love that new bar smell? Fresh paint, new furniture with notes of lingering sawdust combine for olfactory excitement second only to freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Or maybe bacon. But we digress. The new Sue Ellen’s opens tomorrow night at 10:00 p.m. with free cover and live music. And the lesbians are dancing in the streets like Hollywood was making a Desert Hearts sequel. The new incarnation of the iconic Dallas bar is kind of a “Sue Ellen’s 2.0” though. The move to the old Throckmorton Mining Company space not only makes it one of the nation’s…

At the risk of sounding like a certain iconic TV commercial, “sometimes we don’t feel so fresh.” But this time rather than broaching an awkward conversation with mom and a national audience, we’re heading to Zoë’s Kitchen where they know what freshness is all about. Well, at least when it comes to food. Boasting an easy-to-peruse, yet bountiful-enough-to-enjoy menu, Zoë’s is a great way to get your fast food on without the greasy guilt. Enjoy chicken in just about every variety, including as salad, on pitas or in roll-ups. There are even chicken kabobs and baked chicken dinners for four…

Long before there were Kardashians to keep up with, skanks trying to win the love and neck-clock of Flavor Flav, or ballroom dancers cha-cha-chaing with “stars,” there was a different breed of TV show. We’re talkin’ “Very Special” sitcoms and cheeseball dramas. Sure they were corny, but they kept many of us busy acting out the lead roles in our living rooms and imagining our very own laugh tracks responding to every clever thing we said. Next time you’re feeling nostalgic for the snark of Blair Warner, the billowing wardrobe of Endora, or the feathered-coif of Jill Munroe, you’re only…

Spring is here. The birds are singing, and so are Aretha Franklin and the Pointer Sisters. The butterflies are flitting (to your garden if you plan ahead). The lesbians are migrating. And, the cheese is, well, stinking like it always does, but for purposes of our motif, we’ll just say it’s in “full bloom.” There’s no excuse not to get out and enjoy this week’s goodness. Sue Ellen’s Last Blast Friday, April 11 The times they are a changin’ and the lesbians they are a movin’. Sue Ellen’s is moving (just down the street) to 3014 Throckmorton. But before it…

It’s America’s Next Top Poodle meets Paw-ject Runway. Hide your mangy mutts, kids! The dog groomers are on the loose, and they’ve got visions of 15 minutes of fame in their eyes. In the newest reality show seeking to crown the best something-or-other, the world of high-drama dog grooming finally takes center stage in Groomer Has It on Animal Planet. Hosted by Jai Rodriguez (the cutest of all the hosts of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy if you ask us) and his little dog, too, this competition pits doggie stylists against each other for a $50,000 prize, a mobile…

Maybe it’s the blue-collar boy who melts your heart, or the white-collar gent who makes you all tingly in the, uh, pocket book – but nobody has love for the guy with his collar all jacked up. Fortunately, the brilliant minds at Wurkinstiffs have invented the magnetic collar point to stop the insanity of wayward wardrobe. And persnickety fashionistos everywhere are breathing a collective sigh of relief knowing that the disheveled male neckline is going the way of the dinosaur. Wurkinstiffs solved the whole pokey-outy collar debacle with two simple tools: a metal collar stay and a tiny, super-strong magnet.…

Turn on just about any news show these days and you’ll hear the Chicken Little newscaster clucking, “the economy is crashing, the economy is crashing.” Well if that’s the case, then we’ve got the perfect lemons-into-lemonade remedy for the downtrodden dollar: making your own clothes and accessories. Why pay the big bucks for designer labels when you can sew and show your very own line? (We’ve already got some brand names picked out – VerNOTce? Louis Fauxton?) Oh, but there’s just one problem. You flunked that Home Ec class and the last time you used a needle was to try…

Watching a movie shot in Dallas is always fun for spotting local landmarks or catching a glimpse of favorite places. “There’s Great American Hero on Lemmon Avenue!” “Ooh, and isn’t that the male prostitute Jim picked up last week standing in the Taco Bueno parking lot? He’s a little blurry, but I think it is!” At the 2008 AFI Dallas Film Festival, there are so many film screenings that making the right movie choices is key to enjoying the experience (well, that and watching out for celebrities not wearing underwear). Ciao is an intriguing film. Shot mostly on location in…

Allergies, bee stings and a depleted ozone layer aside, it’s a great time to head outside for a little fun. But for those of you who prefer that your breezes come from industrial-strength refrigerated air conditioners, we’ve got you covered, too. Deep Ellum Arts Festival Friday, April 4 – Sunday, April 6 Deep Ellum. It’s not just about tattoos and drive-by shootings any more. It’s also about high culture in the form of art, live music and draft beer. There’ll be plenty of yummy bad-for-you food and the best people-watching in town at this festive street party. Free Main Street,…
