Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Dallas Arts District

Why We Love China

Cosmopolitans aren’t the only sweet and seductive pink martini we’ve loved for decades. The Oregon-based big band, Pink Martini, has been one of our favorite groups ever to see perform live. Fronted sometimes by the immensely talented Storm Large, it’s still the shows featuring vocalist China Forbes that get the little hairs standing up on the back of our arms. […]

The Artistic Side Of Pride

Today we hit the halfway point of Pride Month, but the celebration of LGBTQ+ culture hasn’t lost any momentum. This weekend, the Dallas Arts District partners with the Crow Museum of Asian Art of The University of Texas at Dallas, Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, and the AT&T Performing Arts Center to present Pride Party+. Featuring a combination […]

Brunch Of The Year: Class Act

After more than 100 brunches enjoyed in 2019, we decided to look back on all those eggs, cocktails and long afternoon naps that resulted from our inevitable overindulgence and pick one that really stood out. Of course, we stand behind every single brunch we recommend, but the one that truly wowed us was one filled with luxury and sophistication. Launched […]

Brunch Of The Week: Drink Your Flowers, Shelby

Get ready for opulence. No, not that kind of opulence. True luxury and sophistication—all in glorious brunch form. Launched back in March, Sunday brunch at Stephan Pyles Flora Street Cafe turns our favorite meal of the week into a real celebration. Even if we’re not celebrating anything in particular. Much like the divine tasting menu at Fauna (inside Flora Street […]


Fire! Ice! Smoking grapefruits! The Dallas Arts District often gets accolades for its crowd-pleasing showstoppers—though they typically occur in a theater or symphony hall.  Until now. The recently debuted Fauna delivers ovation-worthy cuisine course after course with its epic tasting menu. Tucked away inside Flora Street Cafe, this 16-seat culinary adventure is a feast for the senses and in this […]

Block Party People

Sometimes we take to the streets to protest. But Friday night, we take to the streets to party! (With the biggest rainbow exclamation point imaginable.) The Dallas Arts District plays host once again to an epic Pride Block Party celebrating all things LGBTQ across multiple arts venues. With Pride-themed tours, performances, movies, local artists, food trucks, makers and artisans, drag […]

The Big O

Start stretching those calves because you’re about to be performing a lot of standing ovations. Uptown Players’ annual fundraiser, Broadway Our Way, returns to the Moody Performance Hall for three exclusive performances of classic and of-the-moment Broadway hits. Thirty of them to be exact. Hosted by Paul J. Williams and directed by B.J. Cleveland, the show features twisty takes on […]

They Will, They Will Rock You

Remember when Sandy went from good girl to bad at the end of Grease? Well, imagine that on a much larger scale as the Turtle Creek Chorale takes a walk on the wild side for three performances March 15 to 17. For Blinded – Turtles Rock Out, America’s favorite men’s chorus will rock out to head-bangin’, hair-thrashin’ tunes from Aerosmith, Meatloaf, Bon Jovi, Queen, […]

Words Escape Us

The 1500s had Shakespeare. The 2000s have Suzanne Somers. Seems about right. Though nearly four months away, we’ve already gotten our tickets to an Off-Broadway sensation that we’ve been dying to see. Celebrity Autobiography unleashes the real-life stories (and poetry) from the memoirs of famous people on May 25 and 26 at the AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Moody Performance Hall. You […]

Brunch Of The Week: Party On The Patio

Even though the temperature’s dropping in a big way tomorrow, this weekend is set to be an absolutely gorgeous time to be on the patio. And patios—like gays—are made for brunch. So we recommend revisiting an always-great brunch spot: Jorge’s Tex-Mex Café in One Arts Plaza home to one of our all-time favorite patios in the city. They have plenty of traditional […]
