Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Roundup Saloon

Shake It ‘Til You Make It

My how time flies—when you’re drinking booze. Hard to believe it’s been seven years since the first Stoli Key West Cocktail Classic (this year dubbed The Stolimpics), but here we are. More than half a decade later and the event just keeps getting bigger, better, and boozier. This Wednesday, local bartenders gather at The Round-Up to create Stoli cocktails for the chance to compete in the […]

Mama Don’t Preach

In case you’ve somehow forgotten to order flowers, here’s one last warning reminder: Mother’s Day is Sunday. It’s also the return of The Round-Up’s Does Your Mother Know? turnabout show. Benefitting R.E.B.A. (Round-Up Employee Benevolence Association), the annual fundraiser brings all your favorite staff members into the spotlight for a rowdy drag extravaganza. Hosts Daphne and Domita will keep you […]

When Hairy Met Sal

Ask any drag queen. Wearing makeup, tucking your junk, and stuffing yourself into a skin-tight dress can be a real pain. Sometimes, we just want to wig out without all the fuss. This Sunday night, stay out late (because many of you have Monday off) as the Round-Up Saloon presents the Mancandy Wig Party. Throw on your favorite bob, beehive, […]

The Joy Of Socks

Sometimes it’s the simplest of gestures that make the biggest difference. Like a twink on Grindr telling us “You look great for being old.” Melts our heart every time. But the same small acts of kindness can be found in all parts of life. Take philanthropy for instance. A lot of people think being charitable is limited to wealthy people […]

Show Us Your Beans!

Actually, we prefer if you leave your beans out of it, but you be you. In fact, be as creative as possible for the best chance to take home the top prize at the Dallas Bears Annual Chili Cook-Off. The Round-Up will smell meatier than usual this Saturday afternoon as individuals, teams and organizations compete Crock Pot to Crock Pot […]

We Wish You A Beary Christmas

Ohhhhhhhh, holy night! All that prime beef makes us swoon—and we know we’re not alone. The final Bear Happy Hour of the year muscles its way into the Round-Up this Friday with a holiday wish-list fulfilling lineup of drink specials, food and hunky dancers up on the boxes. It’s going to be furry, fun and full of fabulousness. Just like […]

Puttholes Everywhere

Are you an Ace of Clubs? Then get ready for LifeWalk‘s annual golfing/drinking/laughing event, Clover Open. The pub crawl features miniature golf-style putting holes at a dozen different locations around the gayborhood. But first, you need to gather a team of four. Register by this Sunday and save $40 per team over day-of signup. Create a team name and start practicing your […]

Mission: Possible

You like to watch, don’t you? But isn’t it more fun to be a part of the action? That’s our philosophy regarding Dallas Pride Weekend festivities, at least. Instead of just being one of the crowd this September, you can volunteer your time to work a booth at the Dallas Pride Festival or even walk with an organization like the Human Rights […]

Attention, 18+: The Easy Way To Get Into The Round-Up

If you’re 18-and-over, we have a secret to getting you into the Round-Up this Thursday. Just make sure to share it with everyone you know. Simply go to the This Free Life website and RSVP. Boom. Simple as that. Best of all, this first-ever 18+ night at the bar is entirely free with your online RSVP. Highlights of the evening include DJ […]

Help Get The Wig Down Off The Shelf

Throughout modern gay history, drag queens have always been there when we needed them most. Raising money. Raising awareness. Making us laugh ’til we pee-cry. Well, this Sunday, you have the chance to return the favor to one local entertainer. Earlier this month, Chanel Champagne was in a terrible car accident with an 18-wheeler. She underwent surgery and suffered several […]
