Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Don’t Be A Boob

Ah, it seems like World Breastfeeding Week just started, but here we are on the final day of celebrating knocker-as-food-source. So as you walk through NorthPark Center today, walk up to that woman with the small child (we hope) latched to her teet and say a fine howdy-do and thank her for all that she’s doing to bring joy to those around her with camera phones. Then jump in your car, head home and rest up for all the cool events happening this weekend. Maybe even grab a milkshake while you’re out. You know, get in the spirit of things.

Yes, You Cantoni
Art Expo 2008 at Cantoni
Tonight, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Great art, furniture, cocktails and food all add up to one great reason to head to Cantoni tonight for a little post-happy-hour happy hour. Proceeds from the $20 donation benefit Kidd’s Kids, so it’s helping out a great cause. Dress is “Cantoni Chic,” so we guess that means it’s time to break out the red leather pants. Just don’t forget to powder.

Did Somebody Say Vodka?
The GLAAD Friday Mix
Friday, August 8, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Join us and all your friends to celebrate the great work of GLAAD over a cold Smirnoff cocktail. Learn more about the organization’s fight to eliminate homophobia and discrimination, or just sit in the corner and watch all the pretty people. We suggest a little of both.

Free Admission

That’s “Lotus Posture” With A Capital “W”
Yoga at the W Dallas
Saturday, August 9 – Saturday, September 27, 7:00 – 8:00 a.m.
You live in Dallas. So chances are you have no reason to stay at a local hotel and enjoy its great amenities, but now you can. And it’s free. Join other posers and flex-a-holics at Wet on the 16th floor of the W Hotel. We know it’s early for a Saturday, but the view’s great and yoga mats are furnished, so come as you are and leave with a more glowing aura and a fabulous Chakra Khan. Open to first-times and yoga pros alike.

Free, Space Is Limited
W Dallas – Victory Wet, 16th Floor
2440 Victory Park Lane, Dallas

Sip, Sip, Hooray
Sip & Shop Saturdays at MERGE
Saturday, August 9 (and all Saturdays after)
The more you drink, the better you look in those low-waisted, rhinestone studded jeans and the more you’ll want to buy. At least that’s what we think the idea is behind this shopping event at MERGE, a great little boutique with trendy collections for men and women. But don’t pre-judge their motives. They’re probably just trying to keep us hydrated with our choice of champagne, white wine or beer. And how appropriate: while you chug, er, sip your booze, you can buy clothes from Scotch & Soda. Sounds like serendipity to us.

Ah, Craps!
Pride Radio Casino Night
Saturday, August 9, 5:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Have we got a multi-level marketing scheme for you! Bring just $25 to the Rose Room at S4 and immediately turn it into $2,000. Come to think of it, it’s not even a scheme. And far from multi-level. But the $2,000 part is true. Well, except that it’s fake money in the form of casino chips. There are great prizes, though, and all donations benefit the Lone Star Ride – Raising Money In The Fight Against HIV and AIDS. And that’s something worth betting on.

$25 donation in advance, $30 at the door
(Gets you admission for two and $2,000 worth of chips to split)
