Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Sign Of The Times

Just like the Zodiac rolling from airy Aquarius to fishy Pisces, this week is all about trying new things. So whether your sign is Stop, Slippery When Wet or Rough Road Ahead, there’s bound to be a new adventure waiting. Find out what’s written in the stars by taking a trip to one of these outings.

Valentine’s Day Stop Light Party
Tonight, 9 p.m.
Forget trying to get to second base, tonight it’s all about getting the green light. Glowing wristbands give you your cue. Green is single and ready. Yellow signifies that options are open. Red means go for it, but only if you are the home wrecking type.

Station 4, Sue Ellen’s and JR’s
3903 – 3923 Cedar Springs, Dallas

Tripsichore – The Insect Piece
Friday, February 15, 8 p.m.
NamastHEY girl, do you love toned yoga bodies but hate to break a sweat? Then check out this yogarrific performance piece promising amazing poses and more spandex clad packages than an American Gladiators marathon.

Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 at the door
Lakewood Theater

Steel Magnolias
Through Sunday, February 17
Okay, gay check. Finish this line: “Drink your juice ______.” If you answered anything other than Shelby (in your best Southern Belle drawl), you may not purchase tickets to this show and your track lighting will be revoked. The gay cosmos has aligned and delivered Sally Struthers, Margaret Colin and Ruta Lee in some of your favorite roles. But dears, as tempting as it may be to bust out your best “pink is my signature color,” please refrain from quoting along with the show like you do with the movie.

Tickets: $25 to $59
Casa Manana
3101 W. Lancaster, Fort Worth

Barry Manilow
Tuesday, February 19, 8 p.m.
To think young Barry started out tickling the ivories for Bette Midler whilst she entertained bathhouse patrons. Oh what a long road he’s traveled (although you could never tell with all the work he’s had done!). Fanilows rejoice, he does indeed write the songs and he’s bringing them for you. And, if you happen to be named Mandy, get ready for incessant heckling.

Tickets: $29 to $139
American Airlines Center
2500 Victory Avenue, Dallas

Damien Hirst
Through April 2008
Formaldehyde, it’s not just for mortuaries any more. Artist Damien Hirst probably won’t be joining the sunshine committee anytime soon, considering his work deals mostly with death imagery and involves lots of animals floating in liquids. But he is trumpeted as one of the best young artists to come out of Britain and the show will certainly give you and a date something to talk about.
