Morgana Shaw is back once more as Bette Davis

Hard Rock relives the ’60s … in a frock

Dish (and later Cedar Grove) at the ilume was one of the first restaurants in Dallas to offer a drag brunch, and now that it’s closed, other locales have picked up the slack. Among them: the Hard Rock Café in Victory Park, which offers a monthly show with a unique theme. This month: ’60s Showcase! So show up in your best Gidget gear … or just let the queens do all the work.

DEETS: Hard Rock Café,
2211 N. Houston St.
