Gay List Daily’s must-do events: April 2-5, 2009
Another week, another laundry list of fabulous happenings that will make your social calendar want to jump off the nearest bridge.
Another week, another laundry list of fabulous happenings that will make your social calendar want to jump off the nearest bridge. If this sounds familiar, then you’re as over-dramatic as we feared. Even we, with all our multiple personalities, cannot possibly attend all these great events, but we’re sure as hell gonna try. So sit back with a glass of wine, wrap your legs around a hunk of clay or head to Eastland for some raunchy girls’ school fun. And if you can’t find something fun in this week’s list, we’ve got a bridge to show you…
Tonight, 7:00 p.m.
Start the weekend off early with a decadent five-course meal and wine-pairing at Dali in One Arts Plaza. Guest winemaker and Dallas native Peter Spann will be on hand along with his award-winning wines. Make sure to swirl your glass really fast and create a hurricane out of Merlot. (That shows the other people that you know what you’re doing).
Cost: $75 plus tax/gratuity; Dali Wine Bar, Dallas; www.daliwinebar.com

Join the Turtle Creek Chorale for their largest special event of the season, the annual airline-themed fundraiser. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, champagne, cocktails, live music and more.

It’s the ultimate flight experience and you never even have to get frisked by security. Unless, of course, you really want them to.
Whores Live!: The Facts Of Life: The Lost Episode
Sunday, April 5 - Tuesday April 7
Now before you start writing us hate mail, this lost episode is all about the Eastland girls turning tricks to save Mrs. Garrett’s job. So in all senses of the words, they’re whores. Big, dirty whores. But big, dirty, hilariously funny ones at least. TFOL: TLE is a lot like Cher. The encores just keep on coming, but we’ll line up to see either any time they come back. Three nights only (at least until their May revival, late May revival, really late May revival…)
Whores Live! Part 2: Missed America Pageant 2009
