Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Hello, Dolly, Lily & Jane!

One life lesson we learned as kids was that it’s always satisfying to see justice served to a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot. Let’s just hope it happens one day for the current one in the White House and not just Dabney Coleman. Don’t worry. It’s OK to get political when talking about 9 to 5, a delightful, unashamedly feminist comedy starring Lily […]

Brunch Of The Week: Monday Funday

Take a look at that spread. Doesn’t it look tempting? Sure, maybe not quite as tempting as Tom Daley’s spread, but as far as food goes it’s right there at the top. It’s all part of one of our favorite pastimes in town, the Jam+Toast Brunch at The Rustic. Normally only available on Saturday and Sunday, for the long holiday […]

Make It A Point To Have Fun

We’ve always wanted to visit a pyramid. But the smell of camels has always made us queasy. Well, now there’s a closer option for all your pyramiding pleasures called PY1. The ultra-cool experience features an 81-foot-tall pyramid imagined by Guy Laliberté, one of the visionary creative forces behind Cirque du Soleil. It debuted in Montreal in the summer of 2019 […]

Pink Traveler: Mardi Gras That’s Not Too Far

In less than three hours (four if you decide to pack before jumping into your car), you can be neck-deep in the Mardi Gras spirit. Sure, you can always partake in the wild parades and non-stop debauchery of New Orleans, but it’ll cost you a pretty penny for the privilege unless you have friends with a particularly comfortable sofa sleeper. […]

It Doesn’t Have To Be Hard To Make You Happy

Ready to remove liquor from your happy hour repertoire? Fear not, you’ll still get a buzz from the cocktails at MoMo Italian Kitchen’s inventive Apertivi Hour. Happening Monday through Friday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. (and 8:00 p.m. on Wednesdays), this great-value happy hour will challenge everything you thought you knew about booze. You can still get favorites such as […]

Make Art, Not War

In the center ring, there’s a fight raging on. You cheer on your favorite while trying to avoid the inevitable red splatter. Don’t worry, we’re not sending you to a boxing match but something far more beneficial to culture and society: Art Battle Dallas. Most of the opportunities to see art take place in cold, quiet museums or galleries where […]

Brunch Of The Week: There’s Got To Be A Morning After

Eat all the things. If this is your dining motto, you probably already know about the Dallas Observer‘s famous Morning After Brunch, celebrating its third edition on Saturday, February 8. The past three years have sold out, so we wanted to give you ample opportunity to secure tickets to this festive fête featuring a practically unlimited variety of brunch food and […]

Winter’s Here. And Queer.

All-star editions of talent competitions aren’t reserved solely for the likes of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Top Chef or Project Runway. Even local entertainment battles benefit from the format and tonight, The Queer Off debuts its first All-Star Winter Games edition at Sue Ellen’s. Ten contestants return to battle for the crown: Blue Valentine, Mannequita, Kendrix Kyle, The Bearded Queer, Gianna […]

Please Send Noods

For years we’ve been saying there’s something seriously lacking in Dallas’ Asian street food scene: Dad jokes. Well, once Red Stix opened quietly over the holiday on Hillcrest Avenue across the street from SMU, our wish has been granted. And so many others. From the brilliant, beautiful, sassy Uno Immanivong (Chef Uno for short), this fast-casual restaurant represents an expanded […]

The Way Of The Broad

Our jazz hands are tingling, which can only mean one thing: Broadway Our Way is just around the corner. The annual Uptown Players fundraising extravaganza returns to the Kalita Humphreys Theater this year for a night of music, dancing and plenty of laughs—and that’s just in the line for the men’s room! On stage, B.J. Cleveland and Coy Covington (pictured) […]
