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…

A night devoted entirely to Taylor Swift music videos? Sign us up. OK, maybe sign somebody else up because we’d rather stay at home watching Netflix with a box of wine, but that’s not as catchy an opening. This Friday night, Screen 7 at the Cedars location of Alamo Drafthouse could look more like a gay bar than usual for the Taylor Swift Video Dance Party. It’s all in celebration of Ms. Swifty’s new album, Ready For It? Tickets are selling fast, so book your seat ASAP. Not that you’ll be sitting in it anyway. Taylor Swift Video Dance Party Friday, November 10 9:00…

Ready to soak up some sun? There’s a brand new arts festival in town and it kicks off this weekend. Turtle Creek Fine Arts Festival debuts this Saturday at the 43-acre Reverchon Park with more than 100 painters, photographers, sculptors, glass blowers, jewelers, and crafters showcasing their talents. The festival also features artist demonstrations, live music, an emerging artists pavilion, kids’ area, plus food and drink. It’s the perfect way to spend a couple hours of your weekend. Or 13. Turtle Creek Fine Arts Festival Saturday, November 11: 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, November 12: 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Reverchon Park…

Timing can be uncanny sometimes. Case in point: We can’t imagine when Medalew Productions planned One And Only, a play about a woman with sadomasochistic tendencies, that the major headlines of the week would be centered on sexual harassment and men abusing their power. There’s nothing funny about any of these situations or allegations, but perhaps this show about a woman in complete control is just what we need right now to continue the dialogue, albeit from a different perspective. The tagline, Love Hurts, promises one irreverent and provocative tale, indeed. Better still, 100 percent of the net proceeds from this show benefit RAINN, the Rape,…

Can a place that specializes in beer be good for brunch? What a stupid question. Of course it can! At least if it’s Blatt Beer & Table in Preston Hollow Village. We’ve been going here on the regular since they opened for chicken tenders at lunch (they’re some of the very best in town), so when we heard that they had launched a new weekend brunch menu, we knew we had to check it out. We started things off with a $4 Guinness and vodka Bloody Mary while we perused the menu. Then we moved on to a Beermosa made with…

For far too long, women have had all the fun getting pampered before big events. But some of us guys want a little glam in our lives, too. Well, Blushington in Highland Park is here to make that a reality with their new Male Grooming 3-Step Treatment to get your face ready for its closeup. The service takes less than 20 minutes, but the results defy the short time commitment. We were invited in to try it out yesterday and only wish we’d been more strategic in our scheduling because we had nowhere to go and nobody to impress afterward. (Unless you count…

Well, crap. Doesn’t look like we’ll be trick-or-treating this All Hallows Eve. Damn rain. But that’s not going to stop us from milking one last night out of this year’s costume. Luckily, there are several gayborhood events that will let us show it off, but also give us the chance to win some cash and prizes. All the Caven bars (JR’s, Sue Ellen’s, S4 and TMC) are hosting contests tonight with a grand finale at S4 at midnight. The Round-Up hosts a contest of its own, starting at 11:00 p.m. And for those who don’t give a flying candy corn about…

Tired of pumpkin spice? Ready to put all your cinnamon sticks in the shredder? Cranberries giving you nightmares? You’re not alone. When it comes to fall flavors, we get treated to (and tricked into) the same old thing year after year. That’s why we’re here to share a cocktail we savored at a recent event we attended with The Botanist Islay Dry Gin. The Botanist Gin on its own packs in 22 hand-foraged local botanicals from the Isle of Islay in Scotland, and even sipping this spirit on the rocks makes us ready to go jump in a pile of leaves while…

Music can make or break a movie. Just imagine all those great Steven Spielberg flicks from the 1970s and 80s without the John Williams scores. Would JAWS even be scary without the soundtrack? OK, yes, but you get the point. This weekend, experience one of the great Spielberg films in a way that truly celebrates the music as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents Raiders of the Lost Ark as a movie in concert. Conductor Constantine Kitsopulous leads a full orchestra onstage at the Meyerson Symphony Center as the movie plays on the big screen above. Feel the swell of every overture, march and instrumental…

Even though the temperature’s dropping in a big way tomorrow, this weekend is set to be an absolutely gorgeous time to be on the patio. And patios—like gays—are made for brunch. So we recommend revisiting an always-great brunch spot: Jorge’s Tex-Mex Café in One Arts Plaza home to one of our all-time favorite patios in the city. They have plenty of traditional favorites for just 10 bucks apiece (huevos con chorizo, breakfast tacos, chilaquiles and fajita eggs Benedict), plus newer options including the Mexican quinoa and eggs bowl (pictured). The brunch menu includes a lighter version of a traditional Bloody Mary, plus…
