Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Dallas Weekend Guide: July 14 – 17

dal-07_14-16Even though Marie Antoinette is inaccurately credited with the phrase, “Let them eat cake,” it’s a bit of misinformation that we still embrace simply because we love super bitches.

Whatever the case, today is Bastille Day and there are celebrations all weekend of the French Revolution, whether you want it as an excuse to drink champagne at work or load up on macarons for breakfast. Of course, there’s plenty of non-French stuff going on this weekend, too.

Here are five can’t-miss events.
