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…

Category is…Futuristic Eleganza Extrvaganza! No, it’s not a repeat of Episode 4 of the current 10th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. It’s this weekend’s 2018 Miss PSSA, onstage at The Rose Room at S4. That’s right, gay sports league Pegasus Slowpitch Softball Association’s annual pageant has a (Kevinless) spacey theme that we can’t wait to experience. Hosted by Cassie Nova, the fierce competition will feature plenty of out-of-this-world surprises, starting with the minuscule $5 cover charge. Or if you want to splurge a bit, e-mail Thomas Martin at activities@dallaspssa.org to get VIP seating for only $25 Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the…

Do you hear that? Listen closer. Brunch is calling! And in order to answer correctly, you need to make a reservation now for the new brunch at Al Biernat’s North. If you haven’t been to this recently opened location in the former Del Frisco’s space, you won’t see a single Ghost of Steak Houses Past. The restaurant has been completely transformed from the dark, wood-heavy dining rooms of yore and replaced modern decor and large windows for a brighter, more cheerful experience. In other words, perfect for brunch. We went a couple weeks ago and it was one of the most glorious brunch…

We still have PTSD from slow-dancing with girls at our high school prom. What we wouldn’t have given for the chance to embrace another guy on the dance floor, but things weren’t as gay-friendly in our formative years as they are now. That’s why we’re so excited for all the tweens and teens (12-18) who have the amazing opportunity to attend the Pride Ball Prom next Friday, April 27. Presented by Youth First and Cathedral of Hope, the second-annual dance features all the highlights of a traditional prom, but with a full-on LGBT angle. So if you fall into that age group or know someone who…

Located 200 miles from Dallas via Interstate 35 is a hip destination with vibrant arts, live music, culinary and cocktail scenes, an amazing array of outdoor adventures, and an active LGBT community. And no, it’s not Austin. But it sure feels like Austin used to before it got so big it outgrew its infrastructure and stopped being as weird as it is increasingly mainstream. Sure, we still love our capital city, but right now we have all the feels for Oklahoma City. The drive north is easier (with much less traffic) and the energy of a city coming into its own can’t…

Who’s craving Asian this weekend? We know we are, especially with the incredible Margaret Cho in town for five shows Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Addison Improv. Not only is she one of the most hilarious comics ever, she’s a die-hard supporter of the gays and possibly the most gracious celebrity we’ve ever encountered on the streets. (We won’t mention the shock on her bodyguard’s face.) Great seats are still available and tickets are a shockingly low $30 to $40 apiece. Which is practically stealing the Cho. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpqjErGfJ9c Margaret Cho: Fresh Off The Bloat Tour Five shows Friday, April…

We love a good freak show. Even one without Jessica Lange. And next Saturday there’s going to be a real menagerie of misfits (and we mean that in the most adoring way possible) in Fort Worth when Impulse Group Dallas presents Cirque du SoGay. Sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, the spectacular free event features everything we want in a first-rate sideshow: fire breathers, stilt walkers and drag queens! Ringmistress Ivana Tramp will wrangle the acts, which also include the fabulous May May Graves and Mayhem Miller from this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.  DJ Ryan Tiffin will be spinning and there will be a midway…
