Dallas Pride Weekend will be here soon. In less than a month, actually. Rainbows will be everywhere, but one place you’re going to want to see all those bright gay colors will be September’s session of Gaybingo. Taking place on Pride Saturday, Rainbow Gaybingo will pull out all every hot, haute hue imaginable and you’re encouraged to do the same. Plus, your chance to win your share of $2,500 in cash and prizes could make for an even happier Pride than usual. Tickets go on sale today at 3:00 p.m., so set your alarm now so that you’ll have first pick of…

We’ve built a life on deadlines, so a clock ticking down doesn’t scare us one bit. Unless we were in a real-life Evil Genius scenario, then all bets are off. Fortunately, the countdown at the heart of today’s story revolves around something far less harrowing: sandwiches. In celebration of National Sandwich Month (and our own year-round obsession with handheld meals featuring bread), we turn our attention to East Hampton Sandwich Co., one of the best in the business. Last month, in addition to rolling out a new menu (don’t worry, their famous lobster roll won’t be leaving), the EHSC team has launched new…

You may never watch 1950s sitcoms the same way ever again. Imagine I Love Lucy if Ricky and Fred were pushing the twin beds together for a little afternoon action on all fours while Lucy and Ethel do interesting things with spatulas and whisks in the kitchen. That’s a down-and-dirty simplification of the plot of Uptown Players’ closing production, Perfect Arrangement. In this effervescent comedy-drama, two married couples appear heterosexual in every way, except behind closed doors where the husbands hook up with each other and the wives do the same. It’s all an elaborate, consensual coverup during the homophobic McCarthy era of…

Are you an Ace of Clubs? Then get ready for LifeWalk’s annual golfing/drinking/laughing event, Clover Open. The pub crawl features miniature golf-style putting holes at a dozen different locations around the gayborhood. But first, you need to gather a team of four. Register by this Sunday and save $40 per team over day-of signup. Create a team name and start practicing your putting skills (or watch reruns of the Hole in One game on The Price Is Right). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ej7qbMhIqrw Bring your own balls and putter, or use the ones provided at each stop. It all begins at The Round-Up and ends at Sue Ellen’s where the…

Other cities need love, too. That’s why we’ve been mixing in awesome places for brunch with our regular Dallas coverage. This week, we travel to Arlington for some kick-ass Benedicts—always the right way to start a Sunday at Six Flags. Or one of those buildings where sports happen. Mac’s Bar & Grill delights Arlington residents and visitors the same way sibling Mac’s on Main has been wowing those in Grapevine. The locally owned restaurant welcomes diners with a casual vibe that seems almost in contradiction of the high-quality brunch dishes. As we mentioned before, Benedicts rule the roost with options that include…

Could this be one of the best gay weeks ever? First, we have Madonna’s 60th birthday to celebrate tomorrow. Then just one day later, the happiest holiday of them all: Dolly Day! Presented by The Rustic in Uptown, this all-night celebration of the glorious country legend features live music galore from Raised Right Men, Frankie Leonie, Harper Grace, Madison King and Summer Dean—all covering Dolly country classics beginning at 9:30 p.m. Dress like Dolly and walk away with up to $100 gift card in the lookalike competition. Dine on food truck favorites. Pamper yourself with $5 manicures. RSVP to hold…

Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it. Our queen turns 60 this week and we’re ready to celebrate! This Thursday, JR’s hosts the 2018 Madonnarama Extravaganza starting at 5:00 p.m. and we’re living for it. Sure, we could just pull up our massive Maddona playlist and dance naked around the mulberry bush, but it’s so much more fun to hear her music among all her adoring gays. So throw on a cone bra, gather your friends and head to JR’s for nonstop Madonna music videos. And probably at least one impromptu vogue-off. 2018 Madonnarama Extravaganza Madonna’s Birthday, August 16 5:00…

What’s the best way to celebrate making it through another Monday? Staying up late and missing work on Tuesday! Tonight, starting at 10:00 p.m., C.E.B.A. (Caven Enterprises Benevolence Association) presents its annual Turnabout Show with hostess extraordinaire, Cassie Nova. Employees from JR’s, Station 4, Sue Ellen’s and TMC will appear in drag, some for the first time. Some as seasoned pros. But no matter what, it’s always an amazing night of gender fluidity. And vodka fluidity. C.E.B.A. Turnabout on Cedar Springs Tonight, 10:00 p.m. JR’s Bar & Grill partyattheblock.com

We just watched a new documentary and saw our future as clear as the balls on an unneutered dog. We want to be the next Danny or Ron. Because after screening Life in the Doghouse, we can’t think of anything better than having a house full of dozens of cute, cuddly dogs in need of rescue. The documentary follows this remarkable, compassionate couple as they celebrate 10 years and 10,000 rescues from their home-run non-profit. We ugly-cried through half the movie and happy-cried the other half. But in the end, it’s such an uplifting story about finding a passion and using it to…

That woman on the stage has a really big secret. No, not that she’s got a sausage under her support hose. It’s that Don’t Tell Supper Club downtown hosts a drag brunch every other Sunday and it’s time to help spread the word. Even though it launched last year, we know several gays who still haven’t heard the good news. So we were invited to our first Not Your Mama’s Drag Brunch this past Sunday to stick our fork in some eggs, wrap our lips around some mimosas, and stick dollar bills into some corsets. We were definitely not disappointed. Each drag…
