Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

One. Ten. Let The Weekend Begin!

Congratulations, you’ve almost completed one full workweek in the New Year – only 51.17745 weeks to go for 2008. And while we are crunching numbers, we’ll give today a 10. Not just because it’s January 10, but also because it heralds so many good outings to come. And we mean a Bo Derek, perfect couples skate, devastating Richter Scale kind of 10, too. So get out there and shake things up.

Flip Orley Master Hypnotist
Tonight through January 13
It will seem like déjà vu of New Years Eve without the champagne as you wake from a foggy haze remembering little. Only this time it will be because you were hypnotized and proceeded to cluck like a chicken for the duration of the show. Sounds like more fun than a barrel of roofies.

Tickets $15

The Goldfish Girls
Friday, January 11, 7:30 to 9 p.m.
No, it’s not Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose solving their problems over a cheesecake. The Goldfish Girls are actually Dallas’ 11-year-old DJ prodigies Paige and Charly spinnin’ old school hits until their bedtime. If you’re lucky, maybe they’ll play the “Thank You For Being A Friend” remix.

Off-Key Karaoke
Monday, January 14, 9:45 p.m.
Whether you sing in the shower or choose to use your throat for other purposes, the addictive properties of karaoke will have even the most reserved banker-types writhing on the ground and belting out “Black Velvet.” What else are you gonna do on a Monday night?
