Most of the country will be celebrating pride during June including Oklahoma City, San Francisco, Houston, and New York City. Dallas Pride comes closer to the Fall in September when we hope its a bit cooler but normally ends up being just as hot.
The Heineken Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade aka Dallas Pride is organized by the Dallas Tavern Guild. The Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade and Festival is on September 20, 2015.

A male version of Hooters is allegedly coming to the gayborhood in Oaklawn in Dallas according to a Craigslist post. We have always dreamed of hot shirtless male servers and we may get it. Tallywackers will be the name of the new restaurant which plan to serve phallic-shaped foods such as hot dogs. They are hiring bartenders, servers, cooks, bus boys and hosts.
Look for it to open soon at 4218 Lemmon Avenue in a space previously occupied by Lolita’s and the Catalina Room. Dallas already has
Hooters and Twin Peaks which show off women’s breasts so why not a place to show off men’s breasts and bottoms of course.
It was earlier this month on April Fools Day that Hooters sent out a big social media campaign they were opening up a chain called “Roosters” but it was just a joke. We are glad to see someone actually carrying through with it. Will you be eating there next month to check out the scenery?
