The northern mockingbird is the Texas State Bird. Sugar cream pie is the State Pie of Indiana. And the hula is the State Dance of Hawaii. But what about our fair city of Dallas? We don’t care about our city’s bird, pie or dance, but when it comes to cocktails we are at full attention. That’s what’s at stake on Saturday, December 2 at The Statler downtown when Shaken + Stirred brings together seven top bartenders to battle it out for the honors of creating the official cocktail of Dallas. Presented by VisitDallas, the epic event gives guests the chance to enjoy all…

We all love a good comeback. (Unless it’s a Donald Trump zombie.) But if you’re talking the triumphant return of the good, old-fashioned coffee shop? We’re all about that kind of resurrection. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Overeasy at the newly reopened, refurbished, re-awesomized hotel downtown, The Statler. Led by chef Graham Dodds, a man who knows his way around a biscuit cutter, this reimagined 1950s/60s-style diner has a modern charm that’s offset by a nod to the past. And we can’t get enough. The menu features a lot of dishes with those famous biscuits and, best of all, you can…

What would the world be without sassy bitches? We could definitely do without most of the human ones, but we’ll take each and every canine that comes our way. And right now, we’re on Bitch #5 as a couple. We rescued our latest furry bundle of joy earlier this year and, well, she turned out to be a bit larger than we expected. So we knew right away we needed to get her some proper training to keep her from taking over the household Planet of the Apes style. We took suggestions from several people for board-and-train facilities, but our good friends over at Barking…

We were so swept up in pre-Black Tie Dinner stuff last week, that we didn’t even notice our favorite musical was back in Dallas. Yep, Avenue Q is back to get songs stuck in our heads for weeks. It’s onstage at the Black Box Theater at KD Conservatory and even though we missed last week’s shows (and we suspect many of you did, too), there are three more opportunities this week to catch the hilariously raunchy puppet musical. If you don’t know what Avenue Q is by now, well, that’s what Google’s for. If you haven’t seen it, this is an awesome opportunity to…

We haven’t watched Project Runway in several years, but we’re obsessed with Season 16. The big New York Fashion Week finale doesn’t air until this Thursday and we’re beside ourselves with anxiety over which of our two favorites (Brandon or Ayana) will walk away the big winner. Luckily, the Round-Up will help distract us from all the anticipation with a little fashion drama of its own. Project Funway returns for its November installment on Wednesday. As always, host Sassy O’Hara takes control of the crowd and contestants to create one of our favorite gay-bar events on the strip. Anyone can participate and the winner will…

We’re not even remotely ready for the holiday season, but at least the cold snap this week got us a little bit closer to getting in the spirit. Fortunately, there’s one event that always pushes us over the line from grinchy to giddy: The Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, DIFFA/Dallas Holiday Wreath Collection party. The theme for this 22nd annual celebration is Vintage White Christmas, which we promise has nothing to do with a bunch of Caucasian senior citizens standing around a tree. (We’ll leave that to the Trump administration.) As always, a group of top designers have lent their…

We’ve all heard of dinner and a show, but brunch and a show?  Not so often. This Sunday, you have the rare opportunity to attend brunch (or lunch or dinner later in the day) while seven artists use chalk to create temporary masterpieces that will don the walls at Lark on the Park for a few months to come. Their use of chalk and blackboard may not be as dramatic as the photo above, but it’s certainly amazing to watch. (Hint: there’s a video at the end of this story.) Of course, you need to make a reservation soon to snag an available…

If you’re going to Black Tie Dinner this year, we know you’re deep into last-minute getting-gussied-up preparation. But this Friday, you can leave the suit and tie at home. Kick off Black Tie Dinner Weekend at the annual, casual B4Black Preview Party where you can get a sneak peek of the silent auction—or get a taste of the main event, even if you’re not attending this year. Yep, as always, everyone is welcome to this Black Tie Eve event. There’ll be entertainment and a cash bar featuring Absolut Vodka and Avion Tequila. Just be careful because too much of those last…
