Get dysfunctional … and save!
Steven Jay Crabtree is back with his whacked-out Dysfunctional Divas comedy show late-night at the Pocket Sandwich Thearer this weekend, but it’s not the same show — it’s cheaper! Just tell them at the box office that you saw the listing in Dallas Voice and save $5 off the price of admission. Grrl loves a bargain — leave more cash for martinis.
Pocket Sandwich Theater
5400 E. Mockingbird Lane.
11”15 p.m. $12 ($5 off for Voice readers) plus one food item.
‘Heather Has Two Mommies’ author Leslea Newman visits Dallas for reading
Lesléa Newman is widely known — some may say notorious — as the children’s author of Heather Has Two Mommies.
But the talented woman is also a poet, which is what brings her to Dallas.
She’ll be reading from her book of poetry October Mourning, a collection that addresses the death of Matthew Shepard. Newman, who was in Laramie the week of Shepard’s murder, took more than a decade to write it. The event is presented by Friends of the Dallas Public Library and Oak Lawn Library Friends.
Dish Restaurant and Lounge
4123 Cedar Springs Road.
Free but RSVP at 214-670-1458.
