Why Not Taco Thursday?

Tuesday may have been National Taco Day. But we’ve chosen to celebrate today, instead. Perfect timing, too, because it coincides with the 40th anniversary party for Desperados Mexican Restaurant on Greenville Avenue. Tonight, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. in the tented parking lot in front of the famous eatery, guests will enjoy complimentary margaritas, a never-ending supply of one of […]

Threesome With Us Tomorrow?

Vodka and a menagé à trois. Two of our favorite things. Tomorrow, they combine in celebration of one of the best holidays of the year: National Vodka Day! We have a bottle of Menagé à Trois vodka in the freezer, just waiting to be popped open and used to craft some party-worthy cocktails. We’d buy Menagé à Trois just for […]

Sunny & Share

Nice knockers! That’s the first thing you see when you walk into Next Door in Uptown: A two-story high wall filled with every shape size and color of door knocker imaginable. It’s really fun, and quite impressive. Which, appropriately enough, are two adjectives that perfectly describe the food and cocktail program.In our experience, food is often an afterthought at bars […]

Sausages In The Spotlight

If you like to plan ahead, then we’re about to scratch that itch but good. Because you need to mark your calendar now for brunch on Sunday, September 4. Join us at the Texas Discovery Gardens in Fair Park for Broadway Brunch, a spectacular event benefiting AIDS Services of Dallas and No Tie Dinner & Dessert Party. There will be […]

What Do Gay Cocktail-Loving Birds Say?

What do gay cocktail-loving birds say? Cheap. Cheap. Cheap. Count us among those fine feathered friends then because one of the best happy hours ever introduced is upon us. It’s at the brand-new restaurant from the Proof + Pantry team: Madrina in the Shops at Highland Park. We’ve already dined there and fallen in love with the French approach to […]

The Skinny On Bubbly

Why wait until January to start easing into those resolutions? There’s a new wine spritzer on the market that’s a perfect substitute for that midnight champagne toast. Raise a glass to Bon Affair, a sugar-free, low-calorie wine spritzer with hangover-fighting electrolytes built right in. Available in California Sauvignon Blanc and California Syrah, Bon Affair varieties are just 100 calories per […]

Season’s Meatings

If you were to take a moment and rank all the blank-of-the-month clubs in the world in order, we’re pretty sure we can guess the results. Fruit-of-the-month offerings will always fall to the bottom alongside deliveries from the Orthopedic Shoe of the Month Club. Bacon, on the other hand, will always rise to the top somewhere near Underwear of the […]

Why DIY?

Sometimes we really wonder how our parents didn’t know we were gay. We became obsessed with decorating for the holidays early on, essentially commandeering duties from our mom. We threw out all her decorations, ditched the ugly silver tree and spent our entire savings from working at an ice cream shop on the perfect family room Christmas transformation. We remember […]

Brunch Of The Month: Nooner In The Cliff

We’re not typically fans of the whole “less is more” concept. Except when said less is part of the word bottomless. Of course, bottomless mimosas shouldn’t be the sole reason you seek out a brunch spot, but when they’re offered in conjunction with incredible food, it’s a hard combination to beat. So get your thirsty self to Bolsa, the Oak […]

Pittsburgh: Eats

Every great city has its signature dish. Philadelphia has its cheesesteak. Boston, clam chowder. And though it may not be official, for us there’s one thing you have to order in Pittsburgh: A Primanti Bros. Sandwich. Originally designed for truck drivers to truly be able to have a meal in a sandwich, this behemoth comes with your choice of meat […]
