Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Cocktails

Bottoms Up!

Victory is ours! After so many years of ho-hummery in Victory Park, it’s exciting to see the district surrounding American Airlines Center finally coming into its own. Not only as a dining destination but an entertainment district that extends beyond what happens on the stage or arena nearby. Among the new arrivals is JINYA Ramen Bar, a chain that got […]

Hip Hop Hooray

Tired of Paloozas? Perhaps we might interest you in a Chella. This Saturday in celebration of Juneteenth weekend, I Heart Dallas presents Daychella, a swanky party for the LGBTQ community powered by hip hop tunes by DJ TRYFE, fun people, and festive libations. Kick it on the patio with a hookah or chill with bottle service in the VIP section. […]

Cheers To The Weekend

You survived Cinco de Sunday Funday this past weekend, now what’s left to look forward to? Fletcher’s Corny Dogs for one. And Distilled: A Fine Spirits Event for those looking to kick off the weekend with a super buzz. Presented by D Magazine, the boozefest features several top bartenders shaking up delicious premium cocktails. Fancy, schmancy cocktails at that. There […]

Holiday, Turkey

Belly (dance) up to the bar, everyone! Travel during the holidays can be stressful, but not if you’re headed to Turkey—by way of Plano. That’s where we discovered one of the best (and most outrageously fun) Mediterranean restaurants in the metro area. Don’t let the strip-center facade fool you because once you’re through the main dining room of Turkish Cafe, it’s like […]

Brunch Of The Week: Hide & Go Drink

✅ Eggs ✅ Bacon ✅ Potatoes ✅ Orange juice ✅ Vodka ✅ Champagne Don’t worry, we didn’t accidentally publish our grocery list. Rather, behold the absolute minimum requirement for making us happy at brunch. Not only does HIDE in Deep Ellum allow us to check off all the boxes, the new brunch menu there goes way beyond with some of the most […]

Brunch Of The Week: That East Dallas Easy Feeling

For most of us, East Dallas means a trip to White Rock Lake. Or maybe the Dallas Arboretum. But if you venture a little further into Lake Highlands, you’ll find a real hidden gem: Cedar & Vine Community Kitchen + Cocktails. We first tried it for lunch and loved it so much we knew we needed to return for our […]

Farm Dallas With Love

Forget farm-to-table. We’re all about farmer-to-bed. Of course, we could also make farmer-to-table work if it came down to it. Yes, we can’t even get through the introduction to a food-event story without taking a pervy turn. But in our defense, we had to go through several stock photos of sexy farmers to find the right one and the process got […]

Tasty Booze & Downtown Views

A change of scenery always does us good. As much as we like the air-conditioned darkness of the Round-Up and the people-watching from the balcony at J.R.’s, we don’t always have to be at a gay bar to have a good time. So we were excited when a little birdie told us to check out the new Upside West Village on […]

Let The Great Margarita Hunt Begin

It’s 95 degrees. You’re hot. Thirsty. Sober. And the only thing that will make things better is a margarita. (Maybe a little queso and guac thrown in for good measure.) But in a city like Dallas where margaritas flow in greater volume and higher velocity than the Trinity River, the search for the perfect frozen or on-the-rocks creation can be a […]

Brunch Of The Week: Welcome To The Gayborhood!

We have a winner! After back-to-back failed concepts in the space at 3900 Cedar Springs Road, Peasant Pizzeria has come onto the scene poised to become a regular haunt for years to come. Attentive service, fair prices and (most importantly) killer food work together to create the triple threat needed to succeed in the city’s major LGBT entertainment district. We were invited […]
