It’s almost Cinco de Mayo, which means everyone’s going to be trying to force margaritas down your throat. And we’re no different. Except ours come shaken with a little Shavasana, a squirt of Halasana and a colorful rim of Namaste. Now between the photo and those clues, you have everything you need to figure out where this is all headed: Mindfulness + Margaritas at Mockingbird Station. While everyone else in town is capitalizing on a holiday Mexicans don’t even really celebrate, this one caught our attention because it’s so different. Your $20 ticket gets you a yoga flow class with CorePower Yoga, three opportunities…

Who doesn’t love a good poke on a regular basis? Same can be said for a good poké. (Ah, what a difference one little accent makes.) If you’re into the basic idea of brunch, but possibly not the more traditional hollandaise-soaked encounters, we have a suggestion. For a fresh, healthy brunch this Sunday, head to  Malibu Poké. Don’t worry, you can still get eggs. Flying fish eggs, but still. If you haven’t yet been to the chic little poké shop in Turtle Creek Village, we consider it one of the top two poké spots in the entire city. Fresh, quality ingredients kick things…

We want to rock and roll all night. And party every day. And, well, rock and roll in the afternoon and party at night, too. Maybe we should just say we wanna rock, roll and party 24/7. So it’s a good thing that the 12th annual Suesapalooza music festival returns to Sue Ellen’s this weekend. The rain-or-shine event kicks off Sunday at 1:00 p.m. with a stellar lineup of live music. Featuring Def Leggend, Rip the System, Southpaw Preachers, The Barefoot Hippies, The Tuxedos, and Bad Habits, there’s enough variety to satisfy any melodic craving you have. Bring your friends, family and furry folk to this always-fab, always-fun festival. Because…

Happy May, everyone! ‘Tis the season for drinks on the patio, flowers in full bloom and four solid days of purple. You guessed it. Purple Party Weekend is just around the corner. Running from May 11 to 14, the multi-day party features everything from poolside gatherings and tea dances to the (dare we say), epic grand finale, Glow.  It’s the biggest weekend of the year for Purple Foundation, which raises funds for those living with or affected by HIV/AIDS; and works to improve the overall quality of life, health, and wellness of the Dallas LGBT community. Tickets are still available for the opening and…

If millennials could ask older LGBT individuals anything, what in the world would they want to know? Well, wonder no more. Beginning this weekend, Flexible Grey Theatre Company presents the first of seven performances of Bridges: LGBTQ+ Then & Now at the Borick Auditorium inside Resource Center. Younger generations were asked to submit questions, which were answered by appropriate LGBTQ+ individuals based on the topic. Portions of the final interviews will be performed onstage by millennials to showcase stories that exemplify the LGBT experience in a unique way. Tickets are $15 in advance or pay-what-you-can at the door, but seating is limited so…

A few weeks ago, we attended an event at the Longhorn Ballroom for the very first time. We’d never even heard of it, which is shocking considering it’s been around since 1950. In our defense, we black out a lot. Anyway, whether you’ve been dozens of times or never heard of it, either, this is an ideal weekend to head to the venue as they debut Longhorn Park. Every weekend, they’ll offer horseback riding along the Trinity River with the majestic Dallas skyline as an additional backdrop. This weekend, you can sign up for 20-minute horseback rides for $25. Or get…

If you love oysters, then you’re going to become infatuated with brunch at Hudson House. The new brunch menu debuted last Saturday and we were among the first people to take it for a spin. The seafood-centric angle of the restaurant makes itself known immediately when THE Royal Bloody hits the table. Not only does it feature a well-balanced, just-spicy-enough housemade mix, it also comes adorned with a fresh oyster, jumbo shrimp and bleu-cheese stuffed olives. At $17 it’s among the pricier Bloodys in town, but it’s a real beauty. Mimosas, meanwhile, clock in at $5 apiece, so our group opted…

Auctions bore us. Unless there’s stripping involved. Then we’re all eyes. And open wallets. This Sunday night, Dallas Woody’s own gay softball team, Sidebets, hosts their first-ever swimsuit auction. Hot guys will strut their sexy stuff (and latest seaside fashions) while you bid on the actual swimsuits they’re wearing that very moment. Hosted by Miss Anita Protest, the not-so-silent auction will be full of summer fun, drink specials and proceeds benefiting Dallas Woody’s Sidebets. It definitely promises to be unlike any auction we’ve ever been to. Because we’ve never seen someone bid on a famous Picasso then take it to his seat…

Why spend gazillions of dollars on an Ivy League education? Especially when everyone knows you can earn more money getting exposure on RuPaul’s Drag Race than years of 80-hour work weeks on Wall Street. (Unless you factor in the cash you rake in for selling your soul to Goldman Sachs.) Well, we can all cheer on the 2018 graduating class from this year’s University of Drag, a 10-week program presented by Resource Center, culminating this Saturday night. The showcase will feature drag queens and kings in two categories, youth ages 12 to 18 and young adults 18 to 29. Led by a group of professional and amateur…

Dallas has more than its fair share of food events. And we go to so many, we’re shocked we ever wake up hungry. Wednesday night, one of our favorite eat-and-drink affairs returns with an exciting twist. Dallas Observer’s Iron Fork 2018 for the first time ever features two female chefs battling it out on stage while the rest of us mingle around with bites and booze. That’s right, Gabriela McCormick (Fearing’s) and Anastacia Quinones (The Cedars Social) will face off to see who’s Dallas’ cooking queen in an Iron Chef-style showdown. Don’t for a second think this isn’t an event with big names at every…
