Beg Your Parton?

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…

Tasty Booze & Downtown Views

A change of scenery always does us good. As much as we like the air-conditioned darkness of the Round-Up and the people-watching from the balcony at J.R.’s, we don’t always have to be at a gay bar to have a good time. So we were excited when a little birdie told…

Movin’ On Up & Up & Up & Up

Ready to take flight? Or should we say, flights? The hottest workout trend in the country is now in Dallas with the opening of Rise Nation, home to fun, low-impact, high-intensity, massive-amounts-of-sweat-producing stairclimbing workout classes. If you like to burn calories in a nightclub atmosphere, this place is for just what you…

Brunch Of The Week: Gettin’ Sunday Schooled

There was a time when Sunday School was our favorite time of the week. Mostly because we had a kick-ass ability to memorize Bible verses better than anyone else in class. And damn if we didn’t love being rewarded with stickers and Munchkins from Dunkin Donuts. Today, we couldn’t quote much…

Brunch Of The Week: Under The Sea

Which came first, the salmon or the egg? We’re not sure we care because we can get both, plus other seafood favorites like jumbo lump crab Benedict (above) during the recently launched brunch at Water Grill in Uptown. If you haven’t been to this California import yet, we highly recommend it for…

Brunch Of The Week: Italy By Way Of Knox Street

We haven’t eaten at Taverna in years. Not because we had a bad experience or didn’t like the food, but simply because we rarely have time to revisit old favorites when there are so many new restaurants in Dallas. So when we were invited to come in and enjoy brunch for…

Relax, It’s Cheap

August is typically our least favorite month of the year. Not only is it hot as balls, but it’s a reminder that summer’s almost over. We’re not sure why that matters as an adult, but it still bums out our inner fifth grader dreading the first day of school. Well,…

Scary, Scary Tweets

Few things give us more joy than the scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds when all the school children are attacked. Let’s reminisce, shall we: And though we’re not too sure how many kids will be attacked by winged creatures in the Theatre Too production opening tomorrow, we know we can’t…

Reach For The Meat

Though we’d never be caught dead in a Golden Corral or Furr’s Cafeteria, we’re not immune to the allure of all-you-can-eat. Or more precisely, all you can meat. The popular Brazilian steakhouse, Fogo de Chão (pronounced fo-go dèe shoun, NOT fo-go dèe chow) got its start in Porto Alegre, Brazil back in 1979. The American…

We Dig This Whole

Grocery store openings aren’t very exciting. There’s usually a regional beauty queen on hand to cut the ribbon with giant scissors before retreating to the dairy section to hand out cubes of cheese on frilly toothpicks. But there’s a grand opening this week that’s worth celebrating with all the hormone-free…
